Dear everyone,

 

Good day.

May I know how may RAM I need if I am going to install and use up to 5 Adobe apps on my iMac?

Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat Pro, After Effects, Firefly.

My current iMac is a 2017 model and has 4GM built-in RAM installed.

Thanks.

Illustrator needs 8 GB in order to even launch. Personally I would not go below 32 GB, particularly since you want to use some very RAM hungry applications and maybe also want to use them side by side

Agreed. The reason why I mentioned think will need to get a new unit of Mac Pro is because of my current iMac, although if I upgrade RAM to 32GB, the processor i5 however I believe would not give the optimal performance as expected. Thanks for your feedback once again 🙂

Adobe or "community experts" AKA adobe embassadors will always say 8 but it's a lie.


 

And do you have some proof of this?

Can you link to a post where a Community Expert wrote this recently?
