Not really sure how to explain this, but I have noticed that when I use some form of the brush tool it seems to be lagging. I will begin painting and the result of what I am doing is behind and really slow. I mainly started noticing this when I started using my Wacom tablet but it happens with both the mouse and the tablet. Did some settings get mixed up?

 

On a Mac version 10.15.7 using Photoshop 21.2.2

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with the performance in Photoshop. Please update Photoshop to the latest version (22.4.2) to check if the issue persists.

 

Please ensure that Photoshop has the necessary permissions on your Mac by following the steps suggested below:

1. Go to the System Preferences for your Mac, then Security and Privacy, then select the Privacy tab.

2. Then select Accessibility from the list to the left & check if Photoshop & the Wacom drivers are added to the list with a check mark in front of it.

3. If not, please add them by unlocking the window first using the lock at the bottom left, then clicking the + icon & navigating to the Applications folder.

4. Also, grant permissions to Photoshop under Full disk access located in the same list as Accessibility.

5. Once done, restart the Mac & check if it helps.

 

If the issue persists, you can try optimizing the preferences of Photoshop using the steps suggested here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/optimize-photoshop-cc-performance.html

 

To set up the Wacom tablet properly, please check: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/tablet-support-faq-photoshop.html

 

Let us know how it goes!

Regards,

Nikunj
