Hi, since the recent bug fix update I am experiencing a whole host of issues in Photoshop so any advice would be appreciated. They are as follows.


  • Constant issues with lag. (I have tried several suggested fixes including resetting photoshop and although they have improved it, the problem is still apparent.) Lag issues include: Zoom stutter, Menu lag, Delay when switching tools.
  • Adjustment layers no longer working correctly. (Double clicking on adjustment layers no longer brings up additional functions such as as the gradient editor on a gradient map layer no-longer work.
  • When I do bring up the gradient map editor for example via the main menu, it does not allow me to edit the gradient map layer.
  • Constant freezing while creating 3D images.
  • Excessive image load and save times.

All of these problems began with the 23.2.1 update. Prior to the update I experienced none of the above issues. I have reset Photoshop and although this has helped, especially with the lag issues it did not cure it or the other problems experienced.


All system drivers etc. are current and up to date.
