My Photoshop was working fine while I had the previous version but yesterday I updated to 2022 and now my laptop completly freezes when I open 1 picture, not even talking about layers. Anyone? Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Iv

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop 2022 on your Windows laptop. Would you mind sharing the exact version of Photoshop you're using along with your computers specifications?

 

Please ensure you have all available Windows updates installed on the computer along with the latest drivers. You can also try optimizing the Preferences of Photoshop using the steps suggested here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/optimize-photoshop-cc-performance.html

 

If the issue persists, try disabling the option to Use Graphics Processor from Photoshop by going to Preferences, then Performance. Once done, relaunch Photoshop & let us know if that helps.

 

Regards,

Nikunj

Hi, yes my version is 23.0.1

My computer specs are:

Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4005U CPU @ 1.70GHz 1.70 GHz

RAM 8 GB 64 bits OS

I've tried to optimize my computer, the 2021 version worked fine.. however after I updated the progam is so slow that I can't do literally nothing. How can I get back the older version? Apperantly I did not retain my previous version. Can you provide me a link to the older version from where I can download it?

Thanks,
Iveta

Which version are you referring to, there should be 3 versions available from the Creative Cloud app, version 22.2, 22.5.2 and 23.0.1

Did you follow the instructions

Are you using a student account by any chance, also check in the Creative Cloud app settings to make sure "Show Older Versions" is enabled

You'll need to contact your IT department or whoever looks after the administration of the Creative Cloud apps, they should be able to make the older versions available

I faced the same problem. After the last update, Photoshop began to work very slowly. At the same time, the task manager does not show any significant load on the system: processor utilization is about 2-4%, memory - 37%, disk - about 0-1%, GPU - 3-7%. The slowdown is drastically noticeable because I work on similar files every day.

I have the same problem. PS CC 2022 is so slow so I rather use much faster and reliable CS6. The only reason to open the laggy buggy 2022 is to use image resizing 2.0. This is a shame.
