Greg
this was sort of fun
I could have gone a lot more coloured but I liked it here.

I am having trouble with my computer. Memory suddenly seems an issue in photoshop. I dont know it its the way I am using it or whether its just time for an upgrade. I may have to have it do in to be looked at so can I have an extension if needed to get these things done

well if your PC has 2 GB of ram then you have 1/2 for use...

My PC is...Well home built....
I have a quad core CPU with 8GB of RAM.  I am running Win7 64 bit so that the system can access and use all 8GB of the ram if needed.  If you give 2/3 of your existing RAM to PS when it is running you should be good to go.  You might have issues if you do not flatten very often.  Each layer can have a complete copy of the image and it's adjustments stored in RAM.  If you start with a 12mb file and have 4-5 layers you are running 50-100 MB of RAM just for the image...

All that said...if you need a good excuse....you just might be able to use this one...
