Re: Pls Help: Can you resize JPEG...

hi,
ram is a major factor

looking at some of the data... there is no single cause.... just like there is no single one component that make a system faster...

overall I think your system is on the light side..... for photoshop

it appears you have a 2.0 gig amd processor... be nice if a little faster....

NOW.. you have 256 meg or ram... with only 36 megs free... definitely a issue here.. because just opening up photoshop will eatup 50 megs!!! and at that point the system will start using virtual memory for sure... smile.... . and any time you use virtual memory that slows things down!!! so the very least I would raise the total to 512 and if your going to keep the machine for awhile invest and maybe get 1 gig!!! ....

Now adding the ram you will/should see a big increase in system performance.... however.. you still need to do those things that I mentioned in the previous reply to get the full benifit of getting the additional ram... and improving performance a little bit more..!!!!
that combination of things will help you greatly!! ...

Re: Pls Help: Can you resize JPEG...

Thanks again Jerryb.

While I will increase ram in the future, at this point, if I delete programs that I am not using will that increase available ram? Would that make a noticeable difference?

I'll also run defrag as I haven't done this in awhile.

hi,
first you "don't" have to delete or uninstall programs just disable them from starting up at boot!!

Yes just disabling a lot of those needless startup programs from starting you should see a big difference.....!!

also if youhave screensaver active.. disable that... it done from display properties....

and like I mentioned when your doing heavy work in photoshop.. just temp turn off your virus scanner and antispyware scanner if it on..... you can do that by right click in the systra the icon for them and telling it to disable or exit or what ever the appropriate terminology there using.. that will regain some ram and even speed ..back..... smile.... don't worry when you reboot the system the virus scanner will come back..!
