When running Adobe software such as Photoshop, Illustrator Lightroom, etc. on my Macbook Pro, I often get notifications from CleanMyMac that my 8GB RAM is operating at its full capacity. I know Adobe apps can be very demanding, I can't even imagine running Premiere or After Effects on my computer.
My question: Is it possible to install and run these apps on a Hard Drive or Solid State Drive? I physically moved each application to be stored on my 1TB HDD, however when I am actually using them, it seems like my computer is still doing the heavy lifting as I get the notification of my RAM's capacity again. Maybe I missed a few steps? Or maybe its not possible to speed up usage and reduce my laptop's workload with this method.
Thanks for the reply! Is there a workaround for running demanding programs on limited RAM? The only other alternative I can think of is upgrading to another computer and thats not very feasible right now.
