Photoshop Refresh Issues
on May 1, 2006 at 8:20:53 pm

I am working in PS-CS
The print shop has asked for the files to be 120dpi. The canvas size is 56" wide by 48" tall.
The file infomation tells me that the file is 1.4 gig and each layer/element is about 15meg and there are about 3-5 of these layers.
My question/problem is:
how can i make the refresh quicker? Everytime i move something or do anything the refresh takes about 20-30 seconds. I just revamped my computer. My operating system is windows xp professional with a 2 gig pentium 4 processor and have dedicated 460 meg of ram to PS CS and have all other programs shut while working in PS.

Adobe recomends 3to5x the file size of free ram for photohsop. I am not sure about how you are allocating RAM in XP, 460mb is nothing. You should have 2gb or more of ram, and only run photohsop as you have been.

There are many other things I could tell you such as to turn on pixel doubling, but your slow refresh is most likely cause your file is going into virtual memory which is 45X slower than ram.
