    Has anyone here got their O/S plus Adobe Photo shop CS6 on a SSD?
    I've been pondering over getting an SSD for a while now, but not sure what size to get.:confused:
    Ideally I'd like my O/S (win 7 home prem) plus PhotoShop
    I also have Lightroom 3, but probably asking too much there?

    The system requirements for Photoshop CS6 say it only requires 1GB of space so even if you double that it's pretty insignificant. Lightroom 4 claims the same. So even in the absolute worst case I would think both would fit comfortably in 5GB and allowing around 50GB for windows you'll have plenty of room.

    Of course, you won't fit many thousands of images on it as well.

    I have an SSD but don't use CS6
    My copy of Win7 HP and 101 other programs are all installed to it and I've only used 57Gb of my 256Gb SSD - Documents etc folders have been moved to a standard HDD to save space.
    Looking at the CS6 Tech Specs it says you need 1Gb HDD space(additional free space required during installation) so I would think you could get everything comfortably onto a 128Gb SSD - inc. Lightroom (1Gb HDD space required).
