NEED URGENT HELP - Adobe Photoshop CS2 - Out of memory even with 1.4GIG RAM installed

I need this repaired ASAP. I must do some editing for a client and I am now in trouble if I don't get this fixed ASAP.

I just don't get this! I had 512megs of memory and occassionally had out of memory issues in photoshop.

So I spent $100+ to get 1 GIG more and now with a total 1.46GIG's of RAM installed and I STILL get the famous error

"Could not complete your request because there is not enough memory (RAM)"

In fact, I am getting MORE out of memory errors in photoshop with 2X more RAM than I started with..

I originaly had the default 50% ram given to adobe.. and then tried 75% and still get the errors 90% of the time.

I checked windowsXP Task Manager Processes and indicates that photoshop is using no more than approx 300-400megs of ram with approx 1010megs being given to photoshop, YET according to Processes, photoshop.exe is only using between 41MEGS - 400megs.. Processes claims a Commit Charge of "2244M/2688M"

HELP!!! Adobe recommends 384Megs of ram.. If that is the case, HOW can I be running out of memory if I have 1.4 GIGS

Cache is set to 1.. I've tried up to 9..

The computer:

CPU: Pentium 3.0 GHz
RAM: 1.46GIGs

So I thought I want to start of with the photo preset but then I couldn't quite understand the different sizes and what is landscape and portrait. Can anyone explain to me or give me suggestions perhaps Also, can I just save it as Jpeg and then send it to photoprinting shops for the printing I really need fast reply. My sister's birthday is on the 20th June. This birthday present idea just struck my mind only last night. :P
New system...need version advice   (233 Views)
I used to use photoshop 5.0 on my mac G4. Now I have a new mac mini os 10.5.6 and have been told that it won't acknowledge my old software at all if I try to install. I can't spring for CS4 right now, so I'd like to know which of the older photoshop programs will run efficiently on my system. Any advice will be appreciated.

Help need with Batch processing photos and order of processing   (194 Views)
I regularly need to batch process images and but find that Photoshop CS4 will run through the foler of images and process in a non-sequential order, ie, Image_1 followed by Image_10, Image_11, etc as opposed to image_1, image_2, image_3. This totally throws out the sequence and is very time consuming renumbering the images to have them int he right sequence. THe only work-around I've found is to separate the images in batches from 1-9, 10-19, 20-29, etc. This is also extremely time consuming and IMO defeats the whole purpose of batch processing. Does any one have any better solution to this
Help needed to adjust person nose shape in CS4   (234 Views)
could someone please tell me how to adjust a persons nose shape in photoshop CS4. I have seen a tutorial on using the laso tool and the grid and then moving the nose in the grid to get the deed shape, and I would like to be able to do this but it does not seem to work in CS4. I get the grid displaying on the nose but when I try to move the nose in the grid with the pointer on the screen the grid moves but the nose does not. I know of liquify, but that adjusts the size not the shape of the nose.
Advice needed for creating hair textures   (163 Views)
I have been stressing out over this problem for a while and I really need advice. I am going to create hair textures for a prorgamme called second life, I know how to, however I am not sure whether to use Greyscale or to create each different hair texture and style one by one. The advantage to greyscale is that it will take less time and effort and cost less. However, the advantages to having different hair textures is that I can control and add highlights. My hair textures are going to be high quality. Please can some-one advice and help me. Thank you
