Bij het bewerken van RAW foto's in fotoshop CC krijg ik een memory to low error. Ik draai win 7 32 bit met 16GB geheugen. Photoshop duid aan dat het werkgeheugen maar 1632 MB bedraagt. Hoe kan ik het werkgeheugen vergroten.

"When editing RAW photos in photo shop to CC I get a low memory error. I run win 7 32 bit with 16GB memory. Photoshop indicated that working memory but 1632 MB. How can I increase the memory."

You need to run a 64-bit OS (Win 7 or Win 8) to take advantage of your 16GB of RAM. Because you are running an 32bit OS, the 12GB of your RAM will never be used.
