    Panorama in CS6

    sunderland19

      I have been trying to create a Panorama in CS6 the past couple of days. When it said I didn't have enough Ram the first time I went through my hard drive and got rid of a lot of things and also freed up a lot of space. I am still getting the same box when I try to use the selection tool to do the fill. It says cannot use automatic selection tool because there is not enough Ram. So am I doing something wrong? I am new to Photoshop and am trying this out for the first time. Thanks for your help.

          RAM = Memory on board for loading and processing programs

          Hard drive = Storage device for data. This is the location some programs are able to emulate RAM (swap/page files).

          Very different items. Access to RAM is very, very much faster.

           

          If a program doesn't find enough RAM memory it doesn't do any good (in most cases) to clean up the hard drive.

           

          How much RAM do you have installed and how much is allocated to CS6? Go to "Edit -> Preferences -> Performance" to find out.

            If you are short on RAM, then appart from closing all other programs, you could downsize the source files (by the same amount, of course) before merging.

              Ok so I tried working in Photoshop with nothing else running and it still says the same thing. And my husband, who is more noligable to computers than I says we are maxed out on RAM for this particular computer. I think I may just go with Elements and learn that before I upgrade to the Photoshop version. I am just down right frustrated with it all right now. Thanks for your answers and help!

                We still don't know if you have a real problem with your RAM or if it is software related. It's beta, after all and therefore definitely prone to such kind of hickups. So please tell us the numbers for RAM and dedicated memory for CS6.

                  We'd need a lot more info. The best way, follow these directions:

                   

                  FAQ: How do I share my System Information?
