Photoshop CS scratch disks

Discussion in 'General Technical Discussion' started by Pa, Aug 16, 2005.

  1. Several times in the last couple of days I had tried to crop an image in Photoshop and get the error message "cannot complete your request because the scratch disks are full".

    I use a 100GB disk with 83GB unused. What is going on ?

    Anybody else had this problem ?

  2. I figured it out, and as usual the explanation is simple.

    I chose to crop to a size of 2666 x 2006 pixels. When I entered those dimensions, I failed to notice that PS had entered default units of inches.

    Thus I was inadvertently trying to create an image 2666 x 2006 inches large!
  3. Well, Pa......that would be a LARGE print, huh? Something over 200 feet on the long side. Probably a little taxing on the ink supply in your printer. :) 

    Glad you figured it out.

    Best wishes,

    And that's how many pixels?
  5. At 300 px/inch that's 4.81 x 10^(11) pixels. (420GP) :oops: 
  6. And no wonder your scratch disc is full. :lol: :lol:
  7. That's about 37,000 square feet. Er.
