Step 2

Here in "Memory Usage" the ideal is to have it at 85-90% of use.
Keep in mind that if you use more editing programs they can be affected if you dedicate all your memory only to Photoshop.

Step 4

Next, we go to the "Virtual memory disks" section. Here you have to select a large disk or several to have enough memory space and not to crash.

and

  • Edition
