I’m wondering if anyone has this problem.

I am running PS CS4 on a Mac.

Quite often when I do “Save for Web” my Photoshop freezes up on me and I have to force quit.

Has anyone had this same problem or know of anything I can do differently to correct this?

Thanks

My file sizes are never even close to your size PA.

As far as leaving it; are you talking about 2 minutes, 5 minutes?

I’ve left it for 10 minutes before and it doesn’t resolve itself.

Sometimes it hangs for a while on my mac pro running cs3 when saving for web – but it generally always resolves after a while – not sure what causes it or why – but never had to force quit.

I always put it down to my external drive falling asleep but are you using an internal to save to?

Could be a bad part of the drive it’s trying to save to?

Strange. No – I also use PS CS4 for Mac, and haven’t experienced those problems.

It happened to me few times but I didn’t had to force quit PS, just had to wait for a while.

I have to my internal drive yes.

I wanted to call Adobe and see if they have any suggestions but now they have made some “changes” to their call service.

Last time I called I was on hold for 1 hour and never reached anyone….

Oh well

Happens sometimes with CS3 on my MacBook when working with bigger files. In my case I am pretty sure it’s a memory issue (I usually have Illustrator and several other programs running as well).
