Hi All,

I have Photoshop CS5 on my Macbook Pro that has 8GB RAM and Photoshop seems to be using up a lot of memory, sometimes 2GB! Yesterday Photoshop was open with no documents open, the app was just running in the background and it still was using 1.6GB...

Does anyone else notice this? I was wondering if there is maybe a cache or history that I need to clear every once in a while?

Regards
James

Hi Ivan, Purge seems to be Greyed out..?
I probably should have noted that I have the extended version of PS. I'm actually using a subscription
