Situation: ANY layered file, no matter the size or file type. TIFF, PSD, PSB hangs at 99% while saving for a very long time.
Whether saving back to Lightroom or saving to ANY drive. It happens with files I've created from scratch, it happens with photos that come from Lightroom.
My drives that I've tested: M.2 system drive, Samsung 850 Evo SSD, External G-Drive USB-C, NAS storage system. ALL of them do the same thing.
Intel i7-6900k 3.2 GHz 8-core
ASUS X99 Deluxe II Board
128GB Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4-3000
Samsung 850 Evo (1TB) used as a scratch disk
Samsung 960 Evo NVMe M.2 SSD (1TB) used as system drive
10TB USB-C G-Drive (used for storage)
NVIDIA GeForce 1080ti GPU (x2)
Every other application I have runs amazing on my PC. Cinema4D? Runs great. OneCapture? Runs amazing. Davinci Resolve? Amazing. Gaming? All amazing. Lightroom? Amazing. Indesign? Runs well.
This is STRICTLY a PHOTOSHOP issue and not my operating system (up-to-date Windows 10 Home Edition). I've experienced this issue for months. I've even reformatted the PC and reinstalled Windows and reinstalled the latest version of Photoshop and the issue still occurs.
I've already abandoned Premiere in favor or Davinci Resolve due to Premiere being unstable so now with Photoshop clearly having issues and Illustrator being a bloated piece of software that runs like garbage, I'm getting very close to ditching Adobe Creative Cloud
This is happening a lot to MacOS Catalina users when saving to exFAT formatted external drives. Then there are a very few users with other configurations reporting the same issue. I think you're the second or third Windows user I've seen.
You can safely assume that this is top priority at Adobe engineering HQ. There's been an avalanche of posts over the last months, hundreds if not thousands.
For the record, most of us don't see this. I use Photoshop for a living, 8 hours a day and then some, and I haven't seen this even when deliberately trying. I'm not denying there's an underlying issue here, there clearly is, but it seems to be triggered by special conditions that they haven't been able to pinpoint yet.
My two working machines are very similar configurations to yours.
For now, the best thing for you to do is report on the feedback forum. This is the official bug report channel. Include as much specific information as you can and/or a reproducible case.
I can recreate the problem by loading several photographs as layers in Photoshop. Then apply stacking. When saving it stucks at 99%. Klicking on the 'x' next the photo resolves the problem.
I have this issue. It's somewhat random but happens very regularly. Why is this marked solved?
I'm running on a Windows machine. Like the original poster, I too have ditched Premiere in a favor of Davinci Resolve. Lightroom doesn't give me issues, but round tripping to PS does about 90% of the time.
Same problem, running win10 64bit machine. I do use external drive.
Why is this marked as solved? This continues to be a huge issue that is absolutely prohibiting me from using Photoshop as an external editor from Lightroom.
I also still have this issue. A year later.
