Lately I've been creating bigger files and have been getting "not enough RAM" messages so...........I ordered some more RAM but haven't got it yet. Somewhere I think I saw a formula or a percentage figure as a guide to how much RAM to assign to Photoshop.....or did I just dream that? Help! [confused] ...RC

Yep in my post, PS error there are several tips on the memory amount. Mine is set at 50% of 768. Works great! The suggestions are 60-80% and if the files are large shut down all the services you can. I usually run PS only when I work on the really large files. No matter what it maxes out my cpu pent III 500mhz and I have 768 of ram. PS, she be a hog on system resources for sure!
