About 2 weeks ago my photoshop would freeze and crash with older files that I have. Some open up but I am unable to work in them. Some crash right on the spot. Yes, my files are big, but that didn't seem to be an issue before, because I made the file on my computer and saved it at the size it was.
I am stuggling to find the sollution to this problem. My computer is relatively new, I bought it in January, it is a a Wacom Mobile Cintiq pro. My computer works perfectly fine except for photoshop.
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 (Mac OS) 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.
If that doesn't work, a few other areas to look into:
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?
