    When you say RAM consumption, are you actually referring to disk space? FWIW, Photoshop creates a scratch disk which temporarily uses disk space.

    Try with Activity Monitor. It should tell you who's using the RAM

    What kind of editing?

    Your statement is unhelpfully vague: "Sometimes the system consumes 15 GB..." does not tell the people reading this post anything useful.

    How many apps were you running?
    How long were they running?
    What exactly were you doing on your computer?

    Did you try opening Activity Monitor and looking at "memory pressure?" As long as itʻs "green" youʻre fine. I have 16 GB of RAM and Iʻve seen my rMBP take up 10-12 GB with only Safari (15 tabs), Calendar, Messages, and Mail running.

    Also, FYI, lets say your system were using a bunch of RAM and was quickly running out, OS X has a memory compression feature that frees RAM by compressing inactive memory.

    Something to keep in mind is the concept that "unused RAM is wasted RAM'.

    Essentially the point being that there's nothing actually wrong with having high memory usage, so long as the system is otherwise behaving as you would expect.

    If you fire up Activity Monitor it's worth having a look at the actual memory pressure - if it's green you probably don't have to worry about your memory usage.

    Hope this helps.

    That is fine

    The App memory section is just stufff loaded into RAM for quick usage by the system if that RAM is needed it will clear instantly and be available for new tasks your memory pressure is green and shows no page outs so it is dealing with your workload with ease. This is completely normal for RAM manangement in OSX.

    Just enjoy it and use it unless there is a problem or your memory pressure graph turns red or yellow it's not even worth thinking about.

    Donʻt know what process "speechRecognition" is, maybe the dictation feature, but it doesnʻt look abnormal. Looks like your system is running fine.
