    Hey guys, I have this little question.

    Does the amount of installed memory matter when installing applications?
    Like when you have 4 gigs of RAM and you install Lightroom, Photoshop, Imovie,,,, or so, should you better reinstall them after upgrading to 16 gigabyte of RAM?

    ?? no of course it doesn't matter if you add before or after the install :)
    Ram would only matter on how many of these applications you can have actively open at the same time before the machine starts using the HDD as a scratch disk.

    No, the amount of RAM matters when you're running applications, not installing them. No, you don't have to reinstall apps when you add RAM. You just add it and boot up.
