    While in Photoshop the programme slowed down and an error message came up saying my scratch disc was almost full. I wondered what that is? My hard drive, where I keep my pictures, has lots of space. Can you advise me please.

    I'm sorry - there is so much technical information in the above reply, that I still dont understand what a scratch disc is and what I need to do about it. Can anyone put it in simple language for me please. Thanks

    Open Photoshop and the go to help and do a search on " scratch disk "

    You may need more free space on your hard drove to use as a scratch disk. If you have other drives on your PC you can go into photoshop preferences and to the plug-in and scratch disk tab. You have up to 4 drives that you can use.

    Also just read post 2 and 5 in the this thread.
