    Strange "out of memory" errors all of the sudden


      I'm running Photoshop CS5 on a brand new Macbook with 16GB or RAM. I'm running Mac OS 10.9.4 (Mavericks).


      Everything had been working fine for a couple of days when today, I started getting the "could not complete the command because there isn't enough memory (RAM)" error messages all of the sudden.


      The truly odd part is that these errors occur only with a very select set of actions. For example, I cannot open any JPEG file, no matter the size, but I can open large PSD or PNG files without any problem.


      I can use most PS functions when a file is open, but I get the error when I attempt to crop an image.


      PS is set up to use 60% of my RAM. There is plenty of RAM available (PS is only using ~150 MB of 7GB+ that are available).


      Any suggestions on how to address this?
