Excess Memory Usage with LR + PS
Apr 12, 2013

Finished editing an image in LR and then transferred it to PS (from within LR) for further work.  When done, PS saved a TIFF image to desktop.  As expected, a TIFF image was also stacked within LR along with the orig JPG.

I attempted to repeat this action this again, but inadvertently selected the LR stack instead of a single image.  Received warning in PS that (C) memory was low.  In fact my available C memory was reduced by about 50 GB!!

I'm sure that moving a LR stack into PS is an illegal operation -- should have un-stacked and selected a single image to transfer.

Deleted the stack in LR, cleaned up PS, all back to normal.  Just wondering what was going on.  How could I have used so much memory ?     (LR4, PSCS3 on SSD, under W7)

Any thoughts on this?
