I also prefer to do any image modification even batch in an image program. If the test succeeds, Ghostscript tries to open the mereg using the name given. Ghostscript attempts to find an optimum balance between speed and memory consumption, but there are some cases in which you may get a very large speedup by telling Ghostscript to use more memory.
