Sorry that Photoshop is displaying less available memory even though it is allocating 100% of it.
I have couple of questions to better diagnose the issue:
- How much free space do you have on your primary harddrive?
- The RAM usage and available memory could be reported wrong by system info, Could you please post a screenshot of Task manager in Windows showing the memory used by Photoshop while it is editing/processing an image?
My computer's CPU usage is normal, even using Photoshop and Illustrator simultaneously. The really weird thing is this Photoshop memory limit for no apparent reason.
I am almost relating this to the upgrade from Windows 10 to version 1803, which I did still in the Inside Program.
The final version of Windows 10 1803 17134.5 is installed and the problem has not yet been fixed. I've reinstalled Adobe Cloud App and Photoshop and nothing was fixed.
The same problem!!
Appeared after updating windows to the final version 1803 10.0.17134.1

Were you having this limited Photoshop RAM availability in the previous Photoshop versions?

Same issue here. I've started the trial of Photoshop CC on my Surface Pro 4 (i5, 8GB) 36 hours ago.
Right after Windows updated to 1803 version a few hours ago the available RAM displayed in the performance page of the preferences dropped from more than 6000 to just 3075MB.
This workaround seems to have fixed it:
Invalid Numeric Entry - An integer between 96 and 8 is required (I've set the value to 8000)
This solved it for me too! I've set 16384 on my 16GB machine and 8196 on my 8GB machine.
Thanks to ClauS. The Regedit workround solved a problem I was having with PSE 2018 opening multiple images (got the message "Could not complete your request because of an problem parsing the JPEG data" ). Don't get that message now and PSE seems to run faster.
Adobe released Photoshop 19.1.5 today which fixes the issue.
Once installed, to allow Photoshop to manage memory - the temporary fix needs to be removed . See this :
