I'm a super busy guy today, but I thought I'd pass this on. If you're interested in getting daily XP (or other) tips in your e-mail, go to http://www.emazing.com/c_technology.jsp to sign up. Hopefully, I'll learn what I'm doing in XP within the next month or so.

I don't have XP but I came across this little tip in a tips newsletter I get, maybe it will be of some interest to some of you. Here's the tip as it appeared in the newsletter:
"On the subject of Microsoft Software, those of you who've upgraded to Windows XP should be aware of the new, free PowerToys program that gives you some great little programs to play with. Check it out at
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/p.../powertoys.asp - the Slide Show Wizard is an
absolutely fantastic program for creating a mini-web site from a folder of photos."
I just went to the site to check it out and the download is unavailable at the moment they say to check back on Friday 18th. hopefully it will be there then.

RAM for XP

I'm using 98SE currently (128M RAM), but am planning on upgrading to XP. How much RAM do you recommend? I have a flatbed scanner now and plan on getting a negative scanner in the future. Like others, I like to have several apps all running at the same time.

So, how much RAM should I get for XP? 512M? 1G?

Memory still seems pretty inexpensive now, so I want to get enough for Photoshop to have plenty, even with large raw scanned images. I'm curious to know what you've used, and how much difference it makes in performance.

Also, how about 2 CPUs using XP Pro? Have you found the 2nd CPU makes a big difference in Photoshop performance?

Thx!

Gene

Hello Gene. Welcome aboard. I'm running XP with 512 megs of ram. I started out with 256, but with larger file sizes, it took forever to do certain things (such as saving a file). Since I upgraded to 512, things have been running pretty well for me, and I think that's enough for me. I'm sure you'll have more responses. I think DJ is still running 256, and I'm pretty sure she'll have a reply for you. The subject of RAM and XP could have been a thread in it's own, since it might be a common concern, and it would be easier for people to find what they're looking for when searching.

XP seems to like 512mb. My XP Pro is pared right down without all the fancy eye candy and still uses about 120mb to just idle.
You'll need to find out how much RAM your motherboard can handle as well.
Don't know about 2 cpu's but Photoshop loves RAM also. I'm using 512 and don't have too many probs unless an image is well over 100mb.......then I notice a slow down.

PIII 933mhz, 512mb, XP Pro.

HTH
