    Photoshop CS5 is crashing still


      I'm using OS X 10.6.8 and I have done the following per google search to rememdy the problem:

      1. Update to latest version of Photoshop

      2. Verify that all fonts are OK

      3. Tweak perferences how much RAM used etc and it is still crashing usually upon trying to place an image - (which is usually the first thing I need to do)

      ANY Help would be MOST appreciated!! Please let me know if any other info is needed to diagnose and fix

      Here is the latest report in case that is helpful?

          It looks like you have 4 gig of RAM.  This might be the problem, depending on size of image.  If you have more than 65% of resources allocated to PS you are probably starving your computer.


          Also check free disk space.  Need about 20% free.  Scratch disk may use 50-100g if a layered image.

            Thanks Curt - I looked into resources which were at 65% I pulled them down to 50% the images are small for the most part - I'll see if that helps any? I have 373.07 GB available - should I look into getting more RAM?
