I'm on Mac Book Pro 16" 2019. OS Catalina.
Photoshop 2021 takes 1 minute 24 seconds to start
I have checked PS is set to use GPU. And I have deleted my preferences.
It takes 45 seconds to load extensions
It takes 27 seconds to read preferences
And then another 12 seconds before PS is ready to use.
Any fix please?
Hi @Simon Lucas sorry to hear this.
Let's make sure we're in a default state and there are no stale settings somewhere:
Restore your preferences using this manual method:
Does it work correctly?
If that doesn't solve it, you can quit Photoshop and put the Settings folder back.
It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info. Launch Photoshop, and select Help >System Info...and copy/paste the text in a reply.
That's amazing. I deleted the preferences by hand (moved to desktop) before I posted my query and it made no difference. But the Cmd-Option-Shift reset was instantaneously effective. Thank-you!
