I'm using win 10, last version of photoshop cc 2020 and wacom Intuos Large. Everytime I'm resizing the brush or drawing with a big brush size photoshop hangs up. Sometimes when I did something with the wacom pencil it needs plenty of time till photoshop reacts. Sometimes I have the same problems with the pen pressure like the thousands of others here. Any ideas????

Hi there,

Sorry to hear about Photoshop crashing, could you please try enabling "Legacy compositing" located in Photoshop's Preferences > Performance, then relaunch Photoshop and let us know if it helps?


Also, please try updating the wacom drivers and let su know how it goes.

 

Regards,
Sahil

Hi sahil,

I'm running ios 10.15.5 on Mac book Air,  i've recently switched to my new creative cloud account and my photoshop wont stop freezing whilst using brushes. I'm also using my wacom instu PT S. sometimes it crashes after an hours work which is peak for my work especially during these times (exam period, deadlines.) I thought the problem might be due to my lack of storage so i wiped my drives and started fresh. the problem just like before.

 

Regards

Hi Sahil, 

 

I have tried this but the problem stays. Every time I am in "Select and Mask" and use brush, it crashes right away.

The latest PSD version removed Legacy Compositing. I have tried numerous other things like resetting worskpace to default, then re-installing my settings, deleting fonts, adding memory under "Performance", etc. Any other suggestions? My PSD freezes after painting for a while (just using custom brushes, small files/few layers, nothing fancy). My 2014 laptop ran it better!

This response is stupid and insulting! Since PS has gone CC I have had nothing but problems. I have been using this program professionally for 18 years, sometimes spending whole days retouching a single image. 

 

Using the clone tool I get about 3 strokes in and the program freezes. I have dumped my P list, uninstalled/reinstalled, removed wacom, tried old tablets, tried just the mouse, updated video card drivers, updated and reinstalled just about everything and this problem still persists! WTF Adobe?

I am having same problem suddenly. It seems to happen most often when adjusting angle jitter or spacing.

 

I even created a new brush and angle jitter crashed it every time

 

I'm on a deadline I need this brush to edit an illustration that was built using all these brushes. I'm dead in the water.

Me too. When skin retouching using brushes (spot healing). Getting sick of this.

I'm having the exact same issue. I've already reseted preferences and all my wacom drivers are up to date. It's honestly quite annoying and frustrating paying for a expensive program that just does not work. I've already lost HOURS of work, I even used old versions of photoshop but it didn't work. Worst update eve.
