Photoshop CS5 Not Enough Memory Error
Posted on 2011-03-23
I am using Adobe Photoshop CS5 on Windows 7 (both of which are fully patched) and when I open a 30mb jpg file, do some trimming then try to save it I get the following error:
Could not save as "[filename & path]" becasue there is not enough memory (RAM). Try saving without optimization or as baseline JPEG.
It fails when:
I save it as a progressive jpg with a quality of 12 and 3 scans.
I save it as a baseline optimized jpg with a quality of 12.
It works when:
I save it as a PhotoShop file.
I save if as a baseline standard jpg with a quality of 12.
I save it as a bmp.
I have tried it with both the OpenGL enabled (which was the default) and disabled and it failed both ways.
Out of 1613mb it says I have free for memory (I have 4gb in the system and a 8gb paging file.) I have photoshop set to use 1484mb (92%)
I have 2 scratch disks set to be used. The first drive has 183gb available and the second drive has 44gb available and is the drive that the file is originally being loaded from.
It seems odd that I am running out of memory considering that even if the file got larger, I still GREATLY exceed it with my ram/scratch space. Does anyone know what could be causing this error?
Thank you for any help you can provide with this.
