I have 32gb RAM. I am thinking of selling a 16GB kit as I bought it quite cheap, at 45, now that manufacturing is declining until a halt, the price is rising.

Obviously, there are no differences in daily PC usage, but what applications utilise such a large amount of RAM?

Not really photoshop, don't find it THAT useful over 16gb in this case.

Possibly useful video editing, which I may get back into later. How much of a difference does 32gb make over 16gb?

Finally, what CS things would use a lot of RAM? Guessing virtual machines, but again, how often are these used, and is the difference between 16gb and 32gb worthwile?

Tbh, laptop and desktop, I've never had more than 8GB ddr - that with a good graphics card usually does me.

Only thing I can think of that could eat up 32GB of RAM would be 3D video rendering, (Blender, 3ds max that sort of thing). Unless you're a professional animator I doubt you'll get anywhere close.
