If you are working on a large document you should check your resolution.
Ensure that your RAM in the Idol Range from Edit> Preferences> Performance.... make your RAM 70% of your RAM memory.
When you have this problem again you can reduce the RAM consuming by going to Edit> Purge> All. it will delete all history and cashes of your file.
Can you please tell me the measurements & the resolution (PPI) of the file you are working on.
I am only working on a 300dpi document that is 3000px by 3000px, and I set the RAM range to 50% because it was so bad. That has not stopped the memory from climbing up to 96% every time, though.
I purged, but that doesn't help with anything (RAM usage still continues to go up)?
It is happening just with this document or in all dicuments.

The fact that Photoshop reserves memory up to the limit is normal and not a problem in itself. This memory will not be released by closing the file, that's also normal.
This is why you set a limit in Preferences - you need to make sure there is some left for other processes running at the same time.
A modern operating system also caches memory for its own purposes. At any time, you shouldn't have much "free" memory at all - again, that's perfectly normal. Free memory is wasted memory. It should all be put to use.
Are you getting slowdowns, general performance problems or "out of memory"-messages?
If you see memory usage steadily go up without any activity, you have a memory leak. This can be caused by third-party plugins.
How much RAM Photoshop uses depends on what you do in Photoshop. On my machine Photoshop normally uses less than 10GB of Ram. However I had done things that cause Photoshop use 35GB of my 40GB of RAM and 100+GB of scratch space.
hey, don't disturb ... this is the bug ... of program PS2017avg ver 18
This problem is also known at other computer configuration and it may be solve with 16 gb ram and more.
this bug araise from a bad optimization of this PS version.
And which is more alarming and worrying of Photoshop ver 18, 19 you will see in my new post. .
