I cannot print anything from Photoshop CS5. I always get the message:
Could not print “image name” because there is not enough memory (RAM).
I'm using Mac OS 10.6.8, with 8 GB RAM. I have tried setting memory usage to 100% of RAM (7379 MB for me). The "Ideal Range" is 4058-5313 MB. I cannot print anything, not even a 20 kB file because I always get that error message.
I've tried unistalling & reinstalling, just to see if that did anything. It didn't help.
Does anyione have any ideas for what the problem is?
(I don't have a problem printing from any other programs, like Gimp, but I want to print from Photoshop because of they way it allows you to adjust what part of the image you print when you are cropping the image during printing.)
That is somewhat of a generic message. Can mean not big enough scratch disk file, HD filled up (should have 10-20% free), but not RAM problem with 8 gigs.
Unistalling and reinstall does little good. First aid is to reset preferences. On Mac start PS and immeditaely hold down cmd option shift keys. If fast enough you will get a reset window.
…have tried setting memory usage to 100% of RAM (7379 MB for me…
That is never a good idea. You're starving the OS of RAM. Try pulling it back to 70% or less.
Also, clarify how much disk space you have left on your boot drive and on your scratch drive.
