Hi,  Enjoy your time off Damien.  I have a photoshop project in which I am adding many layers using "place"  I now get a message saying my scratch disc is full.  I googled this question and it told me to look at this screen.   I have 3 times this many more photos to add.  Do I need to start again using open image instead?

Thanks

I have a PC desktop running Windows 7 pro and Elements 10. It is under 2 years old, and has 8GB of RAM. Its hard drive has 2.95GB free out of 3.63GB. The last time I shut down was earlier today. I have never run a cleanup program.

Something is wrong here.  Can you check these figures again?

You are very right, there is a problem here.  I thought that I have been using my "E" storage as my Main and know that I have lots of room there.  With your lead, I discover maybe the issue is that my "C" is too full plugging things up (and then find these files are double and am confused on organizing them, afraid to delete anything in case I delete everything).   I ran the suggested link above and deleted a large amount of Temp files.

So, I think you have helped me identify my problem and I thank you.  I notice that when I place a photo in to my project, it is a small size.  If I want it better resolution, I believe I need to be opening my image and adding it to a layer instead.  Correct?

This is still very very very very very very very very bad.  You're darned lucky your computer even starts up properly.

Brian says you should have at least 1/3rd of your C drive free.

You MUST start clearing up space.  Don't do any other editing until you have done so.  You're in very dangerous territory.

This is better, but still not the 1/3rd that Brian recommends.

Do you literally mean Place?

Thank you, I have a call in to my computer friend to help me figure out about my storage problem.  I think I am duplicating.

Yes,  If so many photos are on this collage shouldn't this file be larger?

Yes.  The paintings were done in B + W but the paint wasn't true black color on them all, some paint was black /brown color. Once i compose the collage i was going to convert it all to B + white. I hope to enlarge it bigger that 24 x 36

There are 250 photos in this collection in one file on my computer,  it 235 MB.  Only about 60% have been added to the collage to date. so I don't have the exact size.

 

Great! Then everything sounds exactly right.

Just concentrate on freeing up your drive.

Hi Damien, I hope your time off was pleasant.

After cleaning, we worked on the project again, did fine for a bit now get scratch is full again.  I'm still trying to figure out how to get rid of more of my  C storage.

But, can I just change this panel so that I have my E storage checked instead of C in photoshop-preferences-performace tab?

I use a pc from home and I’m out of town right now.  I deleted a lot but don’t remember where I got it down to, I’ll try remember to get back to you on this.
