Perspective Warp keeps crashing

Hey guys!

I haven't been using perspective warp for a while, however when I tried to today, the tool kept crashing. Every time.

I can select the perspective warp tool, drag a window in layout mode, adjust its corners – but as soon as I try to switch from layout mode to warp mode, my photoshop crashes.

On my mac, I get the beach ball loading icon and seconds after photoshop closes with a crash report. Activity Monitor shows that as soon as this error happens, my RAM usage goes up to 99% or 100% (both on mac and windows).

Oddly enough, everything works just fine if I dont zoom past ~200% when adjusting the corners of the window. I also had another crash before this where I was in transform mode where zooming in too far seemed to trigger a freeze, followed by a crash.

 

Details:

I am letting PS use 70% (~9GB) of my RAM. Before, PS takes up 2,6GB of RAM according to Activity Monitor.

This happened in Photoshop V25.1.0, Photoshop V24.7.1 and Photoshop Beta (the 2nd newest Version), running on a 2018 15'' Macbook Pro with 16 GB of RAM.

The same thing happened on my windows machine (Win11, 32GB RAM in Photoshop V25.1.0.

I found 2 articles in this forum describing a similar error, one from Nov 2023 about RAM usage:

And another one from 2018...

Hoping to find answers and/or for this to get fixed soon.
Thank you!
Best,

Daniel

I was having the exact same problem you are. My perspective warp used to work fine and then one day it started crashing when I selected "warp".  Here's how I got it to work for me again:

 

I unselected the "use graphics processor" box in performance preferences and restarted photoshop. After booting it up again, I re-elected the box and moved the "let photoshop use" slider to 100 percent ( it was previously at 70). Now I can use perspective warp when zoomed in or out any amount. It's laggy, but it works.

 

Hope this helps

 

I'm running photoshop on a regular Dell laptop (windows 10 pro) with half my graphics processors out out of date for photoshop compatibility.
