PS Memory Usage - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Russel, if you're running Windows 98 / ME, it could be (and I insist, COULD) the problem. Windows 98 and alike (pre-XP) are known to have memory leak issues. For one, you can't run a machine for more than 24 hours before having to reboot. A few years ago, I used to program in Visual Basic under Windows 98. On any given evening, I had to reboot twice, at least. Else I'd start encountering odd things (unable to print, failing anti-virus software, etc.) What environment are under ? Give some details.

    I'm using Windows 2000 Professional. I should have included this important detail. Here, it appears that PS Elements has the memory leak, of a sort. I find Windows 2000 to be very robust. I usually run mine for up to 30 days between reboots, and the reboot is usually due to a software update. I have Windows 2000 Professional machines that I've installed as part of control systems that run years between reboots. Thanks for the reply, and I agree with you about Win 98. It has problems.

    Oh well... Win2k and me... total strangers! Perhaps someone else here can
    help you better than me.

    Are you using Elements 1.0 or 2.0? I found on my Win2k machine that I had to restart Elements 1.0 after scanning a bunch of files. It doesn't seem to happen in version 2.0.

    (Yes, I've found Win2k to be very stable, and Elements 1.0 was the only software that did this.)

    I 'm onm Windows XP and after working for several hours the machine slows down considerably. I usually do a restart and it works fine again.

    Probably it wants me to have a break to protect me from RSI? ;-))
    I suppose the machine cares for me.

    Leen...RSI, huh? You certainly know the language well, including the
    technical acronyms!

    Leen,

    I have exactly the same problem. And it seems I never get enough time to learn about all that interests me!

    Leen, you're absolutely right ! I learned this lesson the hard way, I did a
    burnout in October 1999. At that time, I was simply "existing", and I
    didn't know how to enjoy life.

    Since then, the therapist forced me to set asside a number of hours, per
    week, for leisure activities. That's when I restarted shooting pictures, as
    my friend offered me a Canon Rebel G camera. That was a good way to get me
    out of the house, into the fresh air. And later, I acquired Photoshop
    Elements :)

    However, bad habbits do get back... I was on the same path in January this
    year. But, experience acquired made me quickly realized I wasn't having fun
    anymore (too much work, too little spare time). Then I joined this
    wonderfully amazing, diverse group!

    Ray
    P.S. And this time again, I got a new camera as well... Canon 10D ;-)

    Wow, all this just from a post about "PS Memory Usage". Do I have to pay extra? ;-)

    Yep... make an entry for Grant's Challenge. That should cover for the
