    VirtualBox and Parallels do the same, so I recommend to delete one of these applications (if you don't have virtual machines on both). First, update Parallels to the most recent version

    I don't find anything strange on the log. You were running Photoshop at the moment when the kernel panic appeared, but the log doesn't show anything more. If you are not going to use Parallels, uninstall it. If the kernel panic keeps appearing, I would start thinking about a hardware issue
