STEP 1: OPEN REGISTRY EDITOR

First, exit Photoshop software first! 

You type in the search bar, keyword Registry Editor (Windows 10) press Enter or press Windows + R combination , type Regedit , select OK.

Type in the search bar: the keyword Registry Editor (Windows 10) and then press Enter or press the Windows + R combination , type Regedit , select OK.

Then, click on the map file below according to the following path:

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Photoshop\130.0

(in the final file it can be 120.0 / 90.0 / 130.0 /… depending on the version of Photoshop)

HKEY_CURRENT_USER

STEP 2: CREATE FILE DWORD (32-bit) VALUE

Right-click on the empty area on the right and select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value

Next, you rename the newly created DWORD file to OverridePhysicalMemoryMB.

STEP 3: COMPLETE THE SPACE TO ALLOW PHOTOSHOP USING

You see how much RAM your computer has (Gigabyte), then convert it to MB (Megabyte). 

– If you already know how much RAM your device is, just multiply that number by 1024.

For example, your computer RAM has 4GB, converted into MB unit will be 4×1024=4096 MB

– If you don’t know how much RAM your device is, type dxdiag in the Windows search bar and press Enter; detailed machine configuration will appear; On it write the amount of RAM of the machine in MB units.

Next, you enter the amount of RAM in MB just obtained in the Value data section; Convert the unit to Decimal and then press OK.

STEP 4: TURN ON PHOTOSHOP SOFTWARE

You perform the operations before the problem (eg Save As / Quick Selection / …) then you will not see that error anymore!
