having problems recently with some apps that I have been using since I got my new 14" M1 iMac in feb this year...

i have attached 2 ssds and use the 500gig SSD as Photoshop temp memory.

(went on the Topaz web site with the problem and some 'genius' said just put more memory in the machine.."You can tell a windows user, but you cant tell em much")

I have been deleting app I never use like garage bands etc. but cant seem to be able to delete 'Apple Stock" or "Apple TV" with I never use...

any clues.

Regards, Sandy

Hello,

That error isn't that your Mac is running out of storage...it is running out of application memory in RAM. However, if you have a low amount of free space on your drive and use a lot of high-end image/video/audio applications that use swap space, then that could trigger that alert. Deleting the Stocks and TV applications won't affect this issue, as they only total a little over 80 MB in size. ;)
  • How much free space is left on the iMac's internal storage?
  • It is recommended to only run resource-hungry applications like Photoshop by themselves, without any others running.
  • It is crazy that Topaz Gigapixel AI is taking 28 GB of application memory! Sounds like it has a memory leak and may need an update? Or, are you processing multiple extremely large graphics files? Is it running as a standalone application or as a plug-in in Photoshop?
  • Have you double-checked your swap settings in Photoshop?

Hi Cory, thanks for the reply.

i have plenty of Photoshop scratch disk space..

yes I was totally surprised by the size of the Gigapixel mem usage, and I had run in on my 8Gig M1 hundreds of times on even bigger files with no problems. I put this message on the Topaz page and have not received on reply so far., never run into it before...

So it seems it all remains a mystery...

Regards, Sandy
