Hi guys, I started to use Abobe CC ( photoshop and Illustrator) in my 2019 IMac :

3.6 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i3

8 GB 2400 MHz DDR4

But I find the applications are very slow. Is there a problem with my isntalation or the configuration is not sufficient ?

Thanks

An i3 probably won't cut it. That is an entry level processor, and this is high end software. 8GB may be just enough for one app (at a time) to work, but not fly.

What Test Screen Name said. Your system is unfortunately underpowered for Photoshop. As you've discovered, it is slooow.

 

I never use Photoshop with less than an i7 processor and at least 16GB RAM.

 

You could try some of the tips in this Adobe article to try and squeeze a little more performance out of your setup but don't expect huge gains since your fundamental issue is underpowered hardware.
