Hello guys, I need help. ..After years of being on a free but limited program, I would like to upgrade to Photoshop 2022
My pc is:
Ryzen 5 2600
G.skill f4 16gb 3200mhz
Gtx 1650 dual
Is that enough to work well or do I risk some ailment?
I don't care about cloud storage as I work everything locally
Here are the minimum and recommended system requirements:
If you meet the requirements, you might want to get the 7-day trial to confirm it works. Be sure to cancel if it does not.
All three of us gave you the same link — it should be mentioned that the page we linked to has several additional links to follow, including one for scratch disks, which just means unused free space. Most of us exceed the "recommended" requirements.
|Hard disk space||
4 GB of available hard-disk space; additional space is required for installation
|16 GB of available hard-disk space; additional space is required for installation
The detailed system requirements are here:
One thing that is not emphasised is the importance of scratch disk. Modern image files with multiple layers can grow very large. Photoshop constantly swaps between RAM and disk (known as scratch disk). Having plenty of space (well over 100GB) on a fast disk is essential to working with such files.
You beat me by 56 seconds Dave 😀
Your system should be fine to run Photoshop, although you haven't mentioned the disk space you have, Photoshop requires a scratch disk and depending on how large the files are that you're working on the scratch disk can use a lot of space, ideally you should have a minimum of 200GB of free space for the scratch disk preferably on a fast SSD.
Another thing Photoshop can be pretty ram hungry so 32GB might be a better option.
