Recommended minimum RAM is 16GB. And BTW, it's far easier to create a screenshot than taking picutures with camera. Take a screenshot on your Mac - Apple Support

I've been using InDesign on my MacBook with 8gb ram with no problem for years and it worked fine! But I bought an iMac and this problem acquired, at the end of the day Indeisgn using 34gb of memory is nonsense!
Also thank you for your input about taking a screenshot but my imac was lagging and that wasn't possible.

Hi there,

 

Sorry about the trouble. If you are using macOS Monterey, then this is a known Apple issue (https://9to5mac.com/2021/11/26/three-monterey-bugs/#:~:text=now%20getting%20old.-,Application%20memo....

 

Also, you may try the suggestion shared on this third-party article (https://9to5mac.com/2021/11/15/monterey-app-memory-leak-solution-suggestion/). I hope it helps.

 

Regards,

Anshul Saini
