My cs6 beta crashes after I do a lot of things such as content aware etc.  This only happens when I have been working with photos for a long time (an hour or so).  I do not know if it occurs when I have bveen working on an individual photo or when I am working on multiple photos.

I only know that this has happened at least 3 times and it cannot be tolerated.

    What OS version are you using?

    And what does the crash report say?

    Not the expert Chris is, but it is a safe bet you are runnig out of memory.


    You say "My cs6 beta crashes after I do a lot of things such as content aware etc", which is a good clue.


    With limited resources you can dial down the histry states, and watch which proceedues you use.  If you can flatten image after a few image intense proceedures.


    If you start with a 1 meg file you can gain in size rapidly.  If you do a whole gaussian blur to a layer now you have a 2 meg file.  Each time to do something it adds to file slze.


    Liquify and probably content aware of a large section can eat up a lot of resources.


    Seems like each new version requires more horsepower.  A 64 bit machine with 8 gigs of RAM is now becoming the min. machine to be able to uses all the features of the program.
