after created a maximum of 10/15 levels it no longer makes me use the program because it tells me that the ram is full even if I set the use of the ram to 100%
Sorry that you're getting an error message in Photoshop saying that your Ram is full.
Which version of Photoshop are you using and what is the version of macOS you're running on your computer?
Please checkout this page on Photoshop Performance and optimize the app preferences to free up some memory:
You can try freeing up RAM in Photoshop by closing all other images and invoking Edit > Purge > All.
Let us know how it goes.
Don't ever set RAM allocation to 100%!
That will quickly choke the whole machine completely. Other applications and background processes need memory too!
Always leave 2-4 GB for the rest of the system. The more RAM you have installed, the higher you can set the percentage. With 8 GB, set it to 60%. With 32 GB, you can go up to 80% or so.
I am having this issue as well. Very frustrating.
macOS Big Sur: 11.2.2
Adobe Camera Raw: 13.1
Macbook Pro: Apple Silicon M1: 16 GB RAM, 2TB HD (Plenty of HD free)
Photoshop Ram Setting: 10984MB (77%)
ACR Developed CR2 @ 6720x4480 8bit
Once the file is developed in PS from ACR, the error comes when I try to save the image as a JPEG.
I had Media Encoder open after having just encoded some video. According to Activity Viewer, the aerender process was hogging most of the free system memory. Quitting Media Encoder seems to have restored order.
