Hi @Karolina2524576283jw sorry to hear this. A couple things to try...

 

Go to Preferences > Performance... and uncheck Multithreaded Compositing - and restart Photoshop. Does the problem persist? 

 

Go to Preferences > Performance... click Advanced Settings... and uncheck "GPU Compositing" - then restart Photoshop. Does the problem still occur? 

 

Thank you,

Hi @Karolina2524576283jw I'm not seeing any submitted crash reports from you in our system. If you haven't done so already, please submit all Crash Reports along with your email address: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/submit-crash-reports.html That will help us diagnose the crash. 

 

A system hang or freeze requiring a computer restart usually means a low level failure such as a driver (bad video card driver, etc), failing hardware (hard disk, video card, etc.) or damaged OS installation. 
It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info. Launch Photoshop, and select Help >System Info...and copy/paste the text in a reply. 

 

Thank you,

Well the photoshoot itself did not crashed, so the crash report did not showed up. 

What i am saying is  that after the latest update the patch tool got stuck, not my computer. My computer works fine. When i used tool  , I mark area i want to fix, but once its done, and you click on the side of image to delect that did not work. But i can move pen anywere and press anything. And it only works on the select area but not the whole image. My computer doe not have anything to do whith it. 

 

And my actions got deleted for some reason. 

 

However, once i uninstalled and downloaded photoshop again, the patch tool fixed, just had to find my action and upload them back again. 

 

I hope it will not happen again

I have the same exact problem. Whenever I use the patch tool (and it doesn't matter if I am just on current layer or what...), then all my other tools stop working. I try to do the patchwork very last to prevent it from happening, but inevitably I see something and I really need to be able to use my other tools without having to save it to jpg and reopen, thus reducing image quality each time I do that. It's very frustrating. I read this thread and the suggestions didn't help, but I may try uninstalling and reinstalling everything unless there is another idea.

Same problem- after using patch tool, it doesn't matter what layer I'm in, whether it is unlocked or not or visible or not...no matter what I try I can't get any other tools to work. Then I'm forced to either save as a jpg and reopen to keep working, therefore losing quality, or start completely over by scratch. Very frustrating.

When Photoshop crashes, this is the first thing to do, try resetting your Photoshop preferences. Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (macOS) immediately after launching Photoshop. You will be prompted to delete the current settings. You can also reset preferences upon a quit if Photoshop is running by going into General Preferences>General>Reset on Quit.

(macOS only) Open the Preferences folder in the Library folder*, and drag the Adobe Photoshop CS Settings folder to the Trash.

This action only affects the items found in the preferences dialog box. Numerous program settings are stored in the Adobe Photoshop Preferences file, including general display options, file-saving options, performance options, cursor options, transparency options, type options, and options for plug‑ins and scratch disks. Brushes (and lots of other setting) are not affected by the above instructions for deleting preferences. You may wish to make a screen capture of the settings in the Preferences dialog to reset them prior to deleting of this file.

Also: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html

*To manually delete Photoshop preferences:
Quit Photoshop.
Navigate to Photoshop's Preferences folder:
macOS**: Users/[user name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop [version] Settings
Windows 10: Users/[user name]/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop [version]/Adobe Photoshop [version] Settings
**Note:The user Library folder is hidden by default on macOS. In the Finder, hold down the Option key when using the Go menu. The library will appear below the current user's home directory.
Now you can drag the entire Adobe Photoshop [Version] Settings folder to the desktop or somewhere safe for a backup of your settings


If that doesn't fix the issue:
Go to Preferences > Performance... and uncheck Multithreaded Compositing - and restart Photoshop.
Still crashing? 
Go to Preferences > Performance... click Advanced Settings... and uncheck "GPU Compositing" - then restart Photoshop. Still crashing?
