I'm new to the Adobe family. After reading some reviews about its main features, last month I finally decided to buy the Elements products (Organizer, Photoshop and Premiere). Howerver, I'm very disapointed with the software performance, it's extremely slow. It takes almost 1 minute to open the software, and over 30 seconds to open a pnoto. So, I'm wondering if this is normal, or if there is something wrong with my system. The experience has been so frustrating that I regret buying the software. I can't work with it. I have search on-line, but most guidance is for users that have recently upgrade to the latest version and have some kind of "legacy" problem.
I'm running a Mac OS X (10.15.4), and Elements Organizaer 2020 (version 18), Photoshop Elements 2020 (version 18) and Premiere Elements 2020 (version 18).
Yes, my photo library is pretty big (about 250 GB).
I checked, and the Media Analysis feature is not running (there are no checked boxes under "People View Settings" (photos or videos) neither under "Analysis Options"(photos, videos, smart tags, and auto creations).
