Photoshop crashes all the time! Especially when I go to use the paint bucket tool

Same issue from my side. Since last update, impossible to open PS 2022 (Big Sur and updated to Monterey).
I previously installed the 2022 (23.0.0) version but I had nothing but problems. So I installed it tonight hoping that things would have gotten better. But things still bad. Before, I had to reinstall the 2021 (22.5.3) version, which works fine.
The 2022 version never crashed but instead it freezes up after trying to do basic functions. For instance, when I wanted the rulers, they never appeared. Instead, multiple images of the work board appeared. And the welcome screen stayed in the background, possibly making for a very slow operation. So, each time I had to turn my computer off.
The subscription service model was supposed to eliminate the hassle of traditional software problems, but those problems are back with the latest version.
Can you tell us more about your hardware setup and your operating system?

Do I need to double my RAM?
I've been having issues as well, just opening Photoshop and resizing a single image causes photoshop to crash everytime. I've removed and installed again this morning for the same issue, and now I'm trying a few versions back.
Ditto, am trying to do a simple resize of an image and it keeps crashing.
The Crash popup shows up and I clicked "Send Report".
I am now reinstalling version 22.0 presumably 2021 version.
Hopefully that works.
I tried everything, uninstalling Photoshop and re-installing only 2021 latest version, did not help.
I made sure that all the latest Windows 11 updates were installed, no change.
I made sure the Intel graphics drivers were the latest installed , no change, Photoshop still crashed when resizing an image
I then unchecked "Use Graphics Processor" in both Photoshop and Bridge and now everything seems to work fine.
Adobe, please figure out why this is happening.
I sent the crash report with my email addr4ess included so feel free to connect to solve this issue.
I have also been expierencing the same problem, have you managed to solve it because i am still struggling. The startup and everything is good but when it gets to 5/10minutes into working on a file - Photoshop freezes and i have to end it with task manager.
Same!! Constantly crashing. I can't get any work done.
I fixed the problem by running the program locally and disconnecting from the Adobe cloud. Connecting to the cloud forces all sorts of background services that tie up the CPU and memory.
I disabled the cloud connect on start up as well as any adobe background services that are enabled on start up.
This made a difference.
How do I do that? can you guide me on the process?
On a PC
Control - Alt - Delete
Select Task Manager
Goto startup tab
Right click over anything adobe and select disable
Some services will still turn on and can be difficult to figure out.
Have some memory of a posting about some browser extensions making calls on adobe services.
There are also postings about shutting off unneeded serrvices.
Access services from the Task Manager , a few tabs to the right of the startup tab
PS 2022 Crashes on opening on a Surface Studio 2 that is maxed out.
Amazing that this is the same thing that happens everytime there is a big update and Adobe is always mystified.
What a company. They just throw stuff out there.
same for me - top of the line surface pro and the "upgrade" to Photoshop 2022 has rendered the program unusable
Photoshop updated to v 23.0 (Photoshop 2022) today. I tried opening the application, and it crashed before finishing opening. I have repeatedly tried opening the application, and it crashes before finishing opening each time. No other large applications are running; I even restarted my computer to make sure Photoshop would not have competition when opening. It still crashes before fully opening.
MacBook Pro 16-inch 2019
macOS Monterey v 12.0.1
Same here. Have Monterey and 2016 Macbook Air. PS 2020 worked well. PS 2022 is a disaster so far.
Same here I just tried to use Photoshop 2022 and it crashes all the time. There is no way to use it. Can I get photoshop 2021 back? I can't work with this new version. Please help!
Go to the Creative Cloud app; in the App tab, find Photoshop, click the three dots menu in the far right, and click 'Other versions'. You can have two versions of PS installed at once on your machine, but you may have to uninstall the latest version if you encounter issues.
Same here, I'm windows 10 user.
After updated crashes when opening, I went back to previous version and the issue remains.
I just figured a fix.
In my case I bought a switch last week with the goal of switching from my new work pc to my personal one.
My two external monitors then, go through this starttech docking station. (The issue with adobe apps it is in my personal laptop.)
After days, I checked my display adapters shown, that are 3 now, being one of them the docking station.
I decided to right click and disable my original adapter (In my case AMD Radeon (TM) R5 M335).
Guess that was the conflict! It is working now!
Hope this help ♥
