Hello,

The filter option in Photoshop keeps giving me the error "could not complete your request because there is not enough memory [RAM]" whenever I try to do wind and other thing.

Please suggest me what to do!

System Configuration: Windows 7 / Firefox 3.6.8

Hi,

I have a solution for it!

Go to Edit menu > Preference > Performance.

After it, increase the let Photoshop use to 1504 or 100% by moving the sliders below the box. Then, click OK.

Hope, it is fixed!

works, thanks bro....
Works. Thanks!
It just tells me that it cannot complete the performance command because not enough RAM. I have 16GB DDR4, and the total amount of RAM used is around 60%. I should not be having problems with RAM usage.
I have the same problem

Hello,

Your question also gives the answer. You must have more ram. PS is a powerful application and requires a lot of live memory. When using Photoshop all other applications should be closed, especially so if you apply filters. Memory will also be taxed depending upon the picture format you are working on.

How much ram does your computer have? I would say that with photoshop 1gb to 1.5 gb ram is the minimum depending on how much work you are doing on the same file. Of course if you have several files open, more ram are being consumed. You must close them.

Regards
I have 16GB RAM, 15GB available and I maximized the usage of RAM in Photoshop (in preferences->performance). I've also already done the effect Im trying to do now but I get the same message about not enough RAM. Is there maybe another possibility?

It's just a bug. Clean your cache and do not use any another applications.
