Photoshop Elements 10 does not see newly added memory

I have been using PSE 10 on my MacBook Pro with 4 GB memory (RAM). Today I upgraded to 16 GB but PSE still displays available memory as 3072 MB.

What can I do to make it use the extra memory? Thanks for reading this.

    Yes, that's right. PSE is still a 32 bit application, which means it can only see that much ram. You can increase the amount available in the prefs up to 90% or so, but the main advantage to extra ram where PSE is concerned is that you have more left over for other programs and activities.

    Well, it runs okay that way. You only gain a nanosecond or so if it were 64 bit, unless you're working with images larger than 1GB in size. Are you having some kind of problem?
