Thank you
John, A big thank you!! I have been looking for an answer for the past one year! I often got the same error despite having enough ( 6GB) RAM. And then you get this stupid techie answers all the time - increase your RAM!. Now I go to Photoshop with open with option and it works well!! I don't know what difference it makes to PS but it works well . Thank you very much.
it's ok. Thank bro !
Could you elaborate on the solution? I've had this memory issue for a while on CS 2, especially after upgrading to Windows 10. It's really getting old. What worked for you exactly?
Open with what??

Thank you

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.

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.
