What can you do in Photoshop to make it use a lot of your RAM?

What I mean is, what heavy duty tasks can I do to actually use a lot of my RAM in Photoshop?

I have 16GBs of RAM and I've wanted something to actually use a lot of it somehow. Photoshop can actually do it, and I want it to somehow (just to kinda test my computer as well).

I would imagine just large raw images and lots of layers but you're really going to have to try to use all your ram.

Very little. You can hit up the NASA website for some images that run a few gigs each. Open a few of those and you can cap your RAM pretty quickly. I don't see the point of maxing out your RAM, though, it's not like maxing your CPU to see how fast it can process video or something. 16GB of RAM is pretty ridiculous. Very little is going to fill it up, not counting Windows caching. May as well set up a RAM drive.

Set your ram limit as high as possible. Buy a DSLR. Shoot a 16 image panorama in RAW. Stitch it in photoshop (64 bit exe). You probably need more ram now
