I recently uodated PSD, and now marque and pen tool don't appear, Open Recent is grayed out. Jpgs wont open in PSD. Is there a fix for these issues?
Have you tried resetting your preferences?
Go to preferences/general and click "reset preferences upon quit" and quit/relaunch PS.
If that does not work, please send your Photoshop sys info.
Go to Help Menu/System Info. Copy and paste in your reply.
Now photoshop is freezing after only a few actions. No matter how many times I save, I lose any preference changes I make. I have to force quit and start again.
Apply your preferences, then quit and relaunch Photoshop to prevent them from resetting.
Your graphics card is well below the minimum requirements to run Photoshop.
Specifically your Nvidia GTX 745 is clocking a 745 ops/sec and the recommended minimums are 2,000.
You'll need to upgrade your hardware to run current Photoshop versions.
Unfortunately, downgrading is not an option either as you can download the last version (2021) and that also has the same requirements.
