Follow up, if adobe doesnt fix their creative suite what is the point of buying it. Davinci Resolve is free for editing and compositing and color grading and Afinity has options for photoshop and design? Its frustrating how badly a paid program is performing.
Hi, I have read this thread, is there something in specific I need to try?
I was wondering if you had to run in Rosetta?
Here is what I read that I thought might be helpful. "Users of a M1 Mac need to use Rosetta, (in the CC app, select start on intel when doing a right-click on installed apps) and most users might have to disable the native canvas in the preferences/technology previews..."
So I have to run photoshop in Rosetta, or just to disable the native canvas? or is the M1 version of photoshop not working?
Hi both, yes I have looked at the articles you both shared. However, Photoshop, Premiere and InDesign (the three programs I use most) are ridiculously slow.
Like I mentioned before, Davinci Resolve and Afinity run fine. Is there something I am missing, a random setting, or do I just need to run the intel/rosetta version of these programs on my M1 mac?
Have you tried running in Rosetta before? If not, then it's worth a try to see if the issue clears up. Let us know if you try it and how it works.
When you purchased your M1, did you do a clean install of your Adobe apps or did you use User Migration Assistent to move all the user data and apps over from a prior computer?
The first thing I'd do is make sure we're in a default state and there are no stale setting somewhere:
Restore your preferences using this manual method:
Does it work correctly?
If that doesn't solve it, you can quit Photoshop and put the Settings folder back.
If it does solve the problem, I would like to get the folder of settings to try and figure out what is bad with them.
Thank you Jeffrey, I did a clean install of Adobe. I will try your suggestion today and get back to you on performance.
Also, is this the same process for Adobe Premiere?
