Have one user of CS 5 Design Premium.  Every time she uses Photoshop to create a large banner, it hangs her system,  It loooks like it's using all of her available RAM,  She 's got 4GB in her Win 7 pc.  Her video card is just a basic Intel one on the mobo.  i know that there was a list of add-on video cards which were certified by Adobe that can really make  a difference, but I can't find the list online.  Adobe support is so hard to get hold of. The wait times are ridiculous.  Can someone help on this?

Photoshop is very good at handling large files with relative small amounts of RAM. That is what the swap disk that you set up when first installing the program is for. The swap disk "swaps" sections of RAM for temporary data written to your hard disk.

As a result, you can work with large files with relatively small memory. The trade off is the more you must rely on your swap disk, the slower operations become.

I would check to see where the swap disk is assigned and make sure there is plenty of room to expand. Try to avoid having the swap disk on the same hard drive as your operating system, even if that hard drive is partitioned.

One thing known to cause problems is if you are on a network and working on a file that resides on a different machine. Adobe strongly advises to import the file to the local machine, work on it there and save it, then export it back to the network location.

D_Brugge -  How do i configure the swap file within Photoshop?  I remember calling Adobe a long time ago, and they never mentioned a swap file configuration.  With this pc where Photoshop is installed, it has only a single hdd with a single partition. Thx.

My bad. I should have been referring to the Scratch Disk. The swap files are ON the Scratch Disk.

Go to Edit > Preferences >  Performance and see where the SCRATCH DISK is pointing.

Sorry for the confusion.
