Photoshop 7.0 large file size, performance issues
Posted on 2005-04-19
I have someone working w/ a Photoshop file that is 239MB her computer is a 2.79 p4 w/ 1GB RAM and 50GB free on the hd. Everytime she does something to this file it takes forever!!!! opening, cutting part of a layer, saving, moving graphics around. The file measures 24X36" printed and is at 400 dpi. I've talked to adobe support and they say this is to be expected, but she refuses to accept that as an answer. Does anyone out there have anything else I can do? She's also working w/ 14 seperate layers on this file, and says she can't merge any of them because what if she has to get back and change something on one of the layers....
This project btw, is a series of collages of photos and drawings of projects my company has worked on and is going to be printed on heavy high gloss paper, mounted, and hung on the wall.
I've got a dealine of figuring out the problem by tomorrow and since apparently adobe can't help, I'm hoping that you can.
