Hi everyone! First of all, I'm not the most tech-savvy, so if you need to see information or something like that I will probably need to be walked through how to do it, but I am here to provide whatever you need to help me solve this issue. So, in the past I have been able to work fine with Elements 14, no problems whatsoever. I have had it for over a year, and really like it. However, just today, when I tried to open more than 3 photos I have been working on (I have opened over 20 on some occasions), I got an error message saying that I did not have enough ram. Then I tried to save just one picture, and got a similar message.

     I did some digging in other forums and people were talking about going to Edit>Preferences>Performance, and I tried to do this, but then got the error message "An integer between 50 and 8 is required. Closest value inserted." No matter what I do, it will not let me access the performance tab. Even if I can get the preferences tab open, when I click on the tab for performance I get this same message.

I am very frustrated, and from what I have read about what others have tried. Uninstalling and reinstalling and a whole host of other rather difficult fixes have done nothing to help. I am hoping that this problem is somewhat know and/or is being worked on. Thanks! Feel free to ask me if you want screenshots of the error messages or other information, and I will try my best to get it to you.

I currently have 7.86 GB of RAM out of the 8 GB that my computer came with. 64 bit operating system.

From another thread, and answer by JDH_2017 much kudos and thanks to him!

Photoshop 2018 Memory Issue

Under \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\14. 0

Created a DWORD (32 bit value) called OverridePhysicalMemoryMB

Set it to a value less than the available RAM your system has, my System has 4 GB of RAM so I used the value 2048.

Now I can open 'Preferences>Performance' and change values.

I can see the reason why this works but not why Adobe have broken it.

Seemed to happen after I installed the Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview 17074.rs_prerelease_flt.180116-1539

but that might be coincidental.

Spent two days uninstalling/reinstalling (3 times due to error messages) and updating Elements 14 and finally came across this. It's a Microsoft issue, not an Adobe issue. This is an easy to follow fix.

The post states Elements 14 but the link is to Photoshop 18. Elements 14 has a 2G ram requirement.

Just perfect. I've dealt with this issue for months and couldn't complete community projects because no one could help me fix it.  Even dumped a lot of programs to free up RAM--some that I really need. You are a blessing.  Thanks so much.
