    PS on New MacBook Pro Memory Usage...

    BenKnowlesPhoto Level 1

      Is it normal that Photoshop should hog so much memory?

      The other day when working things reduced to a crawl and my normal 450gb of SSD space was reduced to 20gb.

      To remedy this Ive had to change the scratch disk to a thunderbolt drive (but Ive since changed it back to try and fix these ram hogging issues but to no avail)


      As can be seen in the screenshot I only have two JPGs open 1875px x 1875px with no layers involved yet photoshop is still using 7gb of ram and 4.1gb of compressed ram!? Is this right??!?


      Any suggestions are welcome please guys.
