I'm having an issue where Photoshop freezes after opening a file. Here's what happens:
1) Open any PSD or image file
2) Photoshop opens the file and is responsive for approx. 3 seconds
3) Photoshop remains unresponsive for approx. 3 seconds (only Photoshop - any other running apps are fine)
4) Photoshop unfreezes and remains responsive until opening another file
I have tried resetting the prefs file, changing performance settings, disconnecting network printers, even uninstalling and reinstalling Photoshop.
My OS is Windows 10.
Any help is appreciated!
We need some more specs - Available HD space, Swap disk space, Graphics card, Video RAM
Thanks for responding. I apologize for not providing enough info about my system. However, I found the solution to my problem in this thread -
Photoshop freezes for 20 seconds after opening an image:
The solution was to completely uninstall Photoshop using the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool (Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool) and then reinstall it.
