In most recent 2018 update, healing and spot healing brush have become much less responsive, sometimes taking multiple seconds after completion of stroke to affect the image.

I've done the regular things like turning off OpenCL and changing other performance options... no change.

This should be resolved in the 19.0.1 update released last night. Please update Photoshop using the Creative Cloud desktop app, and let us know how it feels! Regards Pete

Damn, sorry to hear that Scott!! That sooo sucks! 

Thanks for the warning...I will continue to hold off, or at least try to! I don't get how High Sierra updated itself!

Looks like it wasn't High Sierra. It was their security update, 10.12.6. But it did it overnight, and I never allow automatic updates, so I'm not sure what they did. I'm still trying to figure it out. But wow. Anyway, turning GPU acceleration off in PS fixes the issue but then filters and my actions take longer. I feel bad for Adobe having to put with Apple's nonsense.

It might just be the OS indexing your startup drive. Sometimes that process can mess with overall system responsiveness.

Ah...Okay. So, I have 10.12.6. I have a brand new computer, I don't remember updating it to this version...maybe I did, maybe Apple did it on it's own. Overall my computer seems to be okay, but Photoshop was lagging really bad for me too. But, the computer's performance over all was not as fast as I expected for getting a new computer. (24 GB RAM, 3.4 GHz Intel Core i5 iMac. But PS was dragging the worst! It wasn't even usable. So...I am having the exact same problem as you Scott. Turning off GPU Acceleration has helped me too. 

SO, Try this!!...just today...Adobe came out with PS CC 19.1 (it was 19.0.1), it said it had bug fixes including for high resolution monitors. So, I tried it...I installed it, turned GPU Acceleration back on and it *seems* to be working better. I am not doing anything intense, but I do have big files open and I am not getting the same slowness (i.e. zoom in & out slowness, turning on and off layers isn't as bad), it is much better. So, I'd recommend trying PS CC 19.1. See if that helps!

Hannah, 

I got an PS CC 2018 update notification yesterday for version 19.1 and...so far, it seems to be helping my sluggish/lagging issues w/o having to upgrade to High Sierra. I haven't done a lot of brush work, but even basic zooming and showing/hiding layers doesn't take forever to display. Just so you know! 

Thanks,
Beth

I'm experiencing the same 'lag' issue, for the first time ever. However I'm still using PS CS6, and have had nothing to do with PS CC 2018. The lag with the spot healing brush began after upgrading my MacPro (with 20 GB ram) from OS 10.7.5 (Mountain Lion) to OS 10.11.6 (El Capitan). I use a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet.

Given all the comments on this thread blaming PS CC 2018, your thoughts would be very welcome.
Is there a fix for the problem?

Thanks,
Bob
