Re: 13 inch MacBook Pro Retina 8GB For Photo Editing?

With LR6 and PSE11 open with few other resident programs running in the system tray I reached 6.5 to 7gb memory usage. This was while having 24mb images open in both programs and doing some processing in LR. 4 is definitely a bit short, and with limited space on many SSD drives in comparison to large capacity traditional hard drives I'd say 8GB is fast becoming a minimum recommendation. If you do video or 3d graphics work then I'd advise jumping to 16GB.
