I just recently bought this program and was going to buy RAM after I had tried it out. And it runs a bit slow, what upgrade should I get?
I have 512 right now on an ibook G4 1.33 with the usual graphics card!
Thanks for the help

I have 1GB in my ibook g4 1.07. It runs photoshop a lot faster compared to the 512mb that I once had in it.

I've always wonder what it would be like to use photoshop on a powermac with 8gb.

Processing files in photoshop does depend greatly on the file size your working with. Also, it helps to have a partition of your hard drive set up as a scratch disk.
I would suggest 1 gig RAM min. The more the better of course.

I only have 6.5 gig in the G5

When working with large files (90 mb and up), it can still take time to process certain functions.
