    Photoshop CS6 64bit crashing with big psb files right after opening

    bunny-burning

      Hi everybody,

      I'm having big trouble since CS6 and I couldnt find andy help anywhere, thats why i have to ask here.

       

      Problem discription:

      Opening an 7gb 8bit psb file in PS CS6 64bit: PS opens the file and crashes immediately after showing the content (layers and image). an small error message is shown (but there is no description)

      Sometimes it opens the file, and i can work in it, and when i try to save it (in background AND normal), PS just disappears without error message

       

      My work around: If i open another small jpg first (in first tab) and then open the big psb, i dont get this problem. but actually i never had it open for very long since im kinda scared to put some work into this unstable system.

       

      When doing this in PS CS6 32bit version, its pretty stable and i have no crash.

       

      Funny thing is also, that one time I created a big file from like 20big tiffs in 16bit and could save it. All the time PS was running while creating stuff from scratch i didnt crashed. But after I saved the file and restarted PS, then he couldnt handle the file anymore and crashed like i said before.

       

       

      Any help would be much appreciated!

      Thank you,

      Stefan

          We really need to know the name of the faulting module to have any idea why it is crashing.

           

          But first, go update that video card driver from NVidia's website.

           

          You can also try disabling your third party plugins.

            Hi,

            how can i find out the name of the faulting module?

            is there a log or something?

             

            updating drivers right now...

              So, I disabled the plugins and updated the gpu drivers.

              Its not crashing at the beginning anymore (for now). But while handling the large 16bit file (11gb) which i reduced to 8bit (what he also did without crashing) i tried to save it, and thats where PS crashed again.

              just vanishing. no error, nothing

                Nevermind what i said, now its crashing again right after opening different psb's.

                Nothing has changed!

                  I have issues with PS CS6 and much smaller program files (less than 100mbs) but your problems may have less to do with programming bugs, many though there be, in PS CS6, than basic computer/OS issues.

                  Your files are so large (7gbs?) that you may be incurring problems with memory handling on your system due to hardware issues, OS issues or both.

                  In the real world most motherboards cannot stably use more than 16gbs of memory. Try removing RAM down to 16gbs and see if that improves stability. Google that if you do not believe me. You will not lose any performance, any may actually gain stability, going to dual channel memory using two instead of three slots.

                  Run a memory diagnostic, a complete version that may take several hours to run, to see if any of your RAM is defective. Before doing that make sure all your RAM modules are properly seated in their slots.

                  Install a second hard drive, offload as many files as you can to it and defragment your main hard drive (defragment it no matter what it reports about fragmentation).

                  In truth in the real world neither Windows or Mac OSancient can use more than 8gbs RAM--and motherboards rarely are stable with more than 16gbs of installed RAM-- so contiguous hard drive space remains important, particularly for very large files. Also regardless of how much hardware RAM you have Windows will preferentially default to the hard drive for virtual memory for some routine processes. If all your RAM is functioning well you may want to completely turn off virtual memory in Windows but overall machine stability may be problematic. Fortunately, unlike Photoshop, Windows will run stably with virutal memory on a secondary hard drive.

                  You have way too much RAM. Most studies show that Photoshop performance does not change once you get past just 4gbs of RAM, regardless of whether the OS or program is 32 or 64 bits.

                  So many Photoshop processes are single threaded so that regardless of how much RAM you have all the image data has to pass through one of the processor cores of your CPU. If you do not believe me look up those tests of performance with varying the RAM and varying the CPU: PS is a CPU dependent program despite Adobe's laudable but unstable use of the GPU to attempt parallel processing of image data.

                  All versions of Windows have finite resources for handling memory which files of your size may exceed. You should turn off any and all un-needed background programs and processes, including antivirus (unplug the network cable if you are paranoid). You may have to go to System Configuration to make sure memory/resource hogging programs don't load (e.g. anything referring to Itunes, Adobe reader, Microsoft Office). Look at the processes running with Task Manager and research what you can safely shut down.

                  Finally consider the fundamental cause of most repeated system crashes: failing power supply or failing hard drive (if your RAM passes tests).

                      had the same issue with 16gb ram. already passed memtests. my system is rock solid elsewise. crashes never occured. Except PS since cs6.

                      had my hdd's also exchanged. nothing changed.

                        I have stability issues with PS CS6 that almost render it unusable but not so with CS 5 running in the same machine/OS. Adobe will never publicly admit to its programming glitches  and is blaming video drivers for CS6 instability (they posted a web page devoted to that nonsense) rather than Adobe's failure to write adequate code. In fact the video drivers for NVidia and ATI were in their present form during the coding of CS6 so who is to blame?

                          Some say baloney others look at objective tests.

                            Have you been reading the forums?  If we have a verifiable bug, we admit to it and fix it as soon as we can.

                             

                            But the most common crashes are currently OS bugs, driver bugs, and third party plugin bugs.

                            It's not nonsense - we track all the crashes we get data on, and video drivers really are a big problem (especially on Windows).

                             

                            Many users have older versions of drivers (from before CS6 was written) that still contain bugs.  Both vendors have introduced new bugs since CS6 shipped, and fixed many as well.

                              What "objective" test shows that MacOS and Windows can't use more than 8 Gig of RAM?

                               

                              Many people here are using more than that, without problems or any loss of performance.

                              Currently I'm on a machine with 32 Gig - which I regularly fill while doing development work, 3D, or video editing.

                                You need to realize that there are folks who have more experience than you, bmoag, including personal experience with big systems that really work.  My current workstation has 48 GB RAM, which I use thoroughly, just like Chris.  One need only work on a very large Photoshop document to realize the benefits of having more RAM.  Simply put, more is better, much more is much better.

                                 

                                I base my answers on actual applicable experience and a 35 year professional engineering career.

                                I'm sorry to have to be the one to break it to you that some of what you wrote is just plain wrong.  Telling someone they have "way too much RAM" is akin to telling them their "computer is too fast" to run Photoshop - ridiculous.  And turning off antivirus to run Photoshop?  You're kidding, right?  I would have left it alone but for some reason you feel you need to justify your position.

                                 

                                By your own admission, you have "issues" with Photoshop.  Perhaps you need to defer to folks who know how not to have "issues" running Photoshop.

                                  yes ofc i have too much ram. i just threw it all away and put a 2gb dimm in my machine... now everything is perfect...

                                   

                                  ok now serious:

                                  i tried a fresh win7 install, and it seemed to fix the problem. PS did everything it should pretty stable and i had not problem.

                                  but still i cant say why its crashing on the other OS. all drivers are pretty much the same. maybe its some app i once installed which just causes the problem... who knows.

                                   

                                  i will make a full OS reinstall on an ssd tomorrow, and i keep my fingers crossed it will be all fine.
