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 ?

Thanks.

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!

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,
