  • How do I allocate more memory to Photoshop and Illustrator? Please Help!

    I have a G4 with OS 10.1.5. I am getting error messages while going back and forth between Phootshop and Illustrator that there is not enough memory. Sometimes this makes Photoshop crash, which is very fustrating and sometimes it just doesn't let me do what i want, like placing a file or even copying a file from Illustrator to Photoshop. I can't figure out for the life of me where to allocate more memory to these programs. I am using Photoshop 6 and Illustrator 9, which are both running out of Classic. Please help!

    denver doll (we must come up with a shorter nick name for you) I had this problem a long time ago and I can't remember how to do it but I do remember that I typed memory into the help and it came right up. Sorry I'm at home and the Mac is at work.

      denver - if you open Photoshop and go in your menu to Photoshop>preferances>memory & image cache>memory usage...it will allow you to change the amount of memory that you allocate to Photoshop.

      Illustrator doesn't seem to work the same way which is kinda odd...so I am not sure how to allocate more memory to it.

      Anyways,..hope that helps some P

        found lots of good info here, but not what i needed: http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/317280.html

        for some reason in Photoshop 6 there is no memory option under Preferences. but there is Image Cache, and i just found out what the hay that was.


        Kool- call me 'DD' its easier and shorter. or you can call me Lizz, since its my name. thanks for the Help suggestion. for some reason mine s not working....

        DZine- not there, see above, thanks for the attempt to help though. i think i might have to close OSX and restart in OS 9. and go to About this computer... so here i go.

            With Classic running, close Photoshop and Illustrator.
            Find the actual application within its folder on your hard drive.
            Click on it only once.
            Hit CMD+I
            See the memory tip arrow? Tip it open and set your memory requirements just like you used to in OS9.
            Restart Photoshop and Illustrator.

                Thank you for answering my questions. The project that I'm working on is about how math is used in almost every profession, so each student has to pick a job and then research how math is used in that...

                In my area of the country, there are an abundance of this.

                Believe me, despite over 12 years of agency experience and 15 years being a ''freelancer'', even I have encountered this bias. Especially...

                I wouldn't say it means nothing. If it's coupled with all the other things, like internships, actual employment and education, it definitely counts for something.
