Adobe Photoshop/Photoshop message


I have an early version of Photoshop Elements (2.0) on my iMac G4 desktop. Lately when I go to use Photoshop, I get a message that my "scratch disks are full", and cannot proceed any further. What can I do to "empty" my scratch disks in order to make Photoshop operational again? Your advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

Bob, make sure your trash is emptied. Full trash can take up hard drive space. Hard drive space is needed for your G4 to keep images open. Also make sure you remove files that are not needed, such as other photos, video, etc. Archive those before removing and deleting.
