Please check if it is written "low virtual memory".
then use any cleaner software which help to increase the virtual memory of your computer.
And if the problem accured in your ram then tell to your hardware person.

Hi,

The solution is to increase your virtual memory size...

Considering Win XP SP2 system.. the following procedure may be used to increase ur virtual memory / page file size...

Right click 'My Computer' --> Properties --> 'Advanced' Tab --> 'Performance' Settings --> 'Advanced' Tab --> 'Virtual Memory' Change --> Type in a custom size of 1024MB or something like that (not too much) --> Press 'Set' --> Close the windows --> restart -->DONE!!!

I hope that this solves your problem

Bye

Have a nice day

:)

Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 Error problem out of memory


Without your computer specs, it is hard to judge if this is a bug in Photoshop Elements 3.0 or your system causing the issue.

If you are using Windows 7/Vista, please press Shift+Control+Esc to enter your task manager while running Photoshop Elements 3.0. Click Performance. Under Physical Memory, view the "Available." If this number is low, saw under 1,000, your system most likely needs more RAM. In Windows XP, press Control+Alt+Del ONCE to access your Task Manager.

How to Increase your error undo ability on Adobe Photoshop CS2


By default this is set to 20 which in my experience is not enough you can increase this to a maximum of 99 however 50 should give you what you need under normal use.

Press <CTRL> + <K> to get to the General Preferences.

It is a good idea to save the adobe file every couple of hours or so with a different incremental number of the same file name, this will ensure that you don't loose your precious work.

Also press <CTRL> + <8> to get into the Memory and Cache screen whilst in the previous menu to set the Maximum Memory for use with Photoshop to about 70% of you available RAM

With 1GB of RAM this works out to be 635MB as about 100MB is already used for system processes running in the background.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 Editor "stops working"


Even though this says Elements 6, it still works for 7. The only difference is the TWAIN file is at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 7.0\Locales\en_US\Plug-Ins\Import-Export

Adobe Photoshop 7 files corrupted


If you registered your copy with Adobe and you still have the serial number you can contact them and they may be able to provide you a download link for the disk. However they only normally provide this service up to 90days after the release of the next version. As v7 was released so long ago now you are probably better of upgrading to a newer version such as CS4 or 3. This one is worth watching.

Alternatively, as you already have the serial you could purchase a new disk from eBay or something like this one:

Unable to Open


I'm sorry but the only way you're going to be able to use CS2 is if you either use less programs on the computer so that you can open it without the error message coming up, or downgrade back to Photoshop 4.0 or buy more RAM for your computer. Adobe Photoshop requires quite a bit of RAM so really, it would be wise to upgrade if you want to continue using their products.

Photoshop 7 won't open


Hi there heepslaven,

Quite a dilemma. You need to be in Photoshop to adjust the memory preference settings. The memory preference settings prevent you from getting into Photoshop. Catch-22.

The solution: Change the settings through the .ini file.

Important: If you have questions or need clarification at any point, stop and ask. You are my eyes, I want you to understand the process. OK?

Just to clarify a few things (to rule out other possibilities), please respond with the answers to the following:
  • This just started happening? (No recent changes or upgrades to 7.0?)
  • What is the size of your hard drive? (Right click the drive icon in My Computer and select Properties. It will show a pie chart. I'm looking for Capacity)
  • Same place, What is the available space?
  • Any other recent events that might have something to do with memory usage or disk utilization? (even remotely possible)
  • Ram - How many megabytes (Giga?)
  • Are you comfortable navigating with Windows Explorer?
OK, The objective:
  • Find the initialize file (.ini) that Photoshop uses to save its settings (general preferences, memory, file locations, etc.).
  • Once found, change the default settings, specifically those involving memory usage, errors and so on.
  • This should allow the application to complete its initialization.
  • The changes: Either you can do it with notepad or you can copy and paste it into a comment back to me. Then I make the changes which you put back into the file. Which ever, I prefer to see the whole file, in case something else catches my eye. Don't worry, it's pretty short.
Sound good?

Get back to me with the answers and we can begin.

Upgrading my pc to best perform with adobe photoshop


Here you will learn how to reduce your launch time, optimize preferences, make the most of your RAM, choose between 16-bits/channel and 8-bits/channel, streamline file saving, and switch between apps faster. The hourglass in Windows and the watch and spinning beach ball in Mac OS are icons that most people would prefer not to see when working in Photoshop. Although eliminating them is not always possible, you can go some way toward doing that. You can do this by managing your resources wisely. To that end, it's worth spending a few minutes fine-tuning Photoshop to squeeze the maximum performance out of it. Reducing Startup Time
What better place to start fine-tuning than by reducing the time it takes to launch Photoshop? The following sections show you several ways to launch Photoshop more quickly. Disabling Plug-ins
Each time you launch Photoshop, it loads plug-ins and presets into memory. The problem is that you may or may not need many of the plug-ins during the course of a session, but they eat into the memory allocation regardless. So, how do you alleviate this problem? Well, if you find there are some plug-ins that you use rarely, if ever, during your Photoshop sessions, you can disable them temporarily and enable them on the rare occasions when you do need them. The tradeoff in faster loading and more free memory may be worth the odd occasion when you may need to quit Photoshop, enable the plug-in, and relaunch Photoshop. To disable a plug-in, navigate to the Plug-Ins folder inside the Photoshop install folder and then insert a ~ (tilde) in front of the plug-in name, folder, or directory. For example, a good candidate to start with is the Digimarc plug-in, used to read and write watermarks. If your workflow never makes use of watermarking, loading it into memory each time you launch Photoshop is pointless. You can also install or move the infrequently used plug-ins out of the plug-ins folder and into a new folder (it cannot be a subfolder because Photoshop will still see it and load into memory any plug-ins that it finds). Plug-ins are easier to move around on Mac OS than they are on the PC (though some do require an install or simply their serial number to be entered after they are launched). If you do move the infrequently used plug-ins into this secondary folder, you can load them all in one go, as you need them; doing so, however, still requires a relaunch of Photoshop, unfortunately. To load a plug-in, hold down Ctrl+Shift (Windows), cmd+Shift (Mac OS) immediately after you launch Photoshop and then specify the additional plug-ins folder when asked. While you're in the Plug-Ins folder, you can safely disable some of the files in the File Formats folder that have been gathering dust because you have rarely, if ever, used them since you installed Photoshop. Some of the prime candidates to consider are as follows:
  • FilmStrip—Animation file format used by Adobe Premiere and After Effects
  • PCX—PC Paintbrush file developed by Zsoft
  • PhotoCD—A file format developed by Kodak for storing images on a CD
  • Pixar—A file format designed specifically for exchanging files with PIXAR image computers
  • Targa—Used widely by high-end paint programs and ray tracing packages
