I've come to a bit of a hault when editing one of my photos..
Overall i've got 8 x 5x4 scans off an imacon at 16bit which are roughly 1.8gb each. and i need to compose them together but the computer i'm working on doesn't handle it. i'm working on a mac g5 2.8ghz/3gb ram
so far i've cropped the files to the necessary parts rounding them down between 800mb-300mb each (2 of each at 800mb, 600mb, 400mb, 300 etc. in total about 5gb worth). except the computer still isn't handling it- either freezes or crashes when i get to the last 2 files.
i tried to look up if i could work proxy off photoshop but no luck (if anyone knows if this is possible?). but i also figure i can do adjustment layers/grading etc. off a flattened jpeg version then move the masks back over to the original at the end to save time.
can anyone recommend anything? or what kind of system i might need to be able to run all this at once?
