Memory Usage with Photoshop CS5

  
Today’s peak memory usage— 23GB

Today I was working on one of my photographic lens comparisons with three lenses, files from the 24-megapixel Nikon D3x.

Memory usage hit 23GB in Photoshop CS5. Now if that had been the new Nikon 36-megapixel D800, then it would have hit a whopping ~34 GB.

Which is why for my use, nothing less than 48GB of real memory will do. I use a 12-core 3.33 GHz Mac Pro with 64GB as 8 X 8GB memory from OWC. On a 4-core or 6-core Mac Pro, you can go to 48GB as 3 X 16GB.

You might be surprised by just how low prices have dropped on memory.

Check your memory usage to see if you have “Page outs”. If so, get more memory.
