    I'm using an Intel Core Duo 2GHz iMac with OS X 10.4.10 and Photoshop CS3

    I've tried repairing the permissions and repairing the disks (both my internal and external drives), and it doesn't help. Six times today this has happened, triggered by specifying what dimensions I want to crop the photo to, and after I click "OK" it locks up with that darkened screen telling me to restart in five different languages..

    Here's the report that came up after I restarted. It's the same one every time:

    Tricky... I'm going to guess RAM at this stage but try unplugging one peripheral at a time to see if that could be the cause. Is the RAM from a third party vendor? :)

    How big's that file?!!


    If you do a quick search on this in google, a suggested solution is to disable disk journaling.

    I'm no expert but there's a bit about disk journaling here... hope this is a step in the right direction...

    fixed it. For anyone else who has the problem, it's a common issue, and a software update fixed it.
