Smart Sharpen preview is a lot slower in El Capitan than in Yosemite. The preview is sometimes blank/white for several seconds. Why so and will it be improved?

Did you install the plugin for Photoshop to work around the known bugs in MacOS 10.11 ?

I have installed the plug in with nil effect. For me the smart sharpen is now running extremely slowly after upgrading to El capitan on my mac. Has gone from 2-4 second process to 18-20 second process, greatly increasing time to process large numbers of photos. Please tell me that there is a fix coming soon, as it is too troublesome to go back to yosemite.Kind regards, Daniel

I do have the same problem, I tried turn off preview and the problem remain, the only solution was (set additional options and use Legacy) that means ,go back to the old smart sharp.

It sounds like you are seeing an OpenCL problem on MacOS 10.11. Apple fixed some of those issues in 10.11.1.

The plugin fixes a wide variety of UI slowdowns - you should check Help->System Info and make sure that the plugin is loading correctly (and you didn't forget to unzip it or something).

Thank you Chris. Unfortunately this did not help. My hope was Improved graphics performance in Photoshop with El Capitan, I guess waiting is the solution for now.

If I disable "Use Graphics Processor", the Smart Sharpen is not any slower (preview and when applying). So are my discreet graphics card (2048 MB) in use at all in Photoshop + El Capitan 10.11.1?

Check Help ->System Info to see which GPU Photoshop is using (and what it knows about the GPU).
