My Adobe Photoshop auto-updated for me this morning (yay!) but as I have been using it throughout the day, it has started to lag. At this point I wasn't even able to make a selection without having to wait 10 minutes (approximately) before it was ready to move on to the next step. Is there a reason it's running so slow?
So I posted a video for adobe to see the issue, they seemed concerned after I told them what I think on their FB advertisement.
I thought this might be a good starter video for my new channel.
Yup, Adam's video pretty much sums its up.
Yeap... this is pretty much spot on. What some may not realize is how drastic this becomes when dealing with more direct effects and tools. Previews, layer control, etc etc etc... Basic, basic stuff. I literally feel like I am on my middle school desktop computer from 1997. Literally that bad. Thanks for posting. BTW, 2019 photoshop no problems, lol. At which point, I'd like to get off my subscription since I am not using any updates or new releases, lol.
I would also like to get an attorney or lawyer involved if anyone knows how to begin down that road. Perhaps we could team up. The subscription is so expensive for monthly use and I am using a version from fall of 2019 because anything since simply doesnt work...
I am having the same issues, only mine goes a step further, it lags, then freezes up, then it crashes, and boots me out of my account, and when I go to reopen CC, I have to put my email address, and password back in for CC to reopen again. I have tried just about everything suggested, I reset my prefferences, uninstalled, reinstalled etc. After I reset my preferences, and open my workspace, the program works beautifully, for about 30 minutes, then it starts the same thing again, starts to lag, freezes up, then boots me out of my account. I have a brand new computer, it's only 3 months old, it exceeds ALL minimum requirements and was using version 21.0.2 since I purchased it, I never had one single solitary issue with that version. occasionally and after working for several hours, it would slow up and lag a bit, but closing it out, and rebooting my computer always resolves that issue. I have talked with 2 different tech support agents, and neither were of any help, they told me my Graphics card isn't compatable with photoshop, even though I told them sevral times, 21.0.2 works fine, and it's a new computer. I am a small time, free lance graphic artist and the work I do doesn't require me to have some elaborate type of system, and the PC I have, is all I need to do what I do. I use the subject select feature quite often, and the new upgrade in the 21.2 version makes life so much easier for me. I can go back to using 21.0.2, but after using 21.2 and tis upgrade to Subject Select, I don't want to go back to using 21.0.2. but because I am working on a project that my client has already paid me in full for, it looks like I'll have no choice. Like I told both tech agents, Adobe needs to be sure that any upgrades they do to PS, works with all the latest, and current operating systems before they release it, because long time customers like myself, who pay full price for all CC apps, are not going to be happy if they can't use it, especially when one of the improved features, is something they use all the time.
So After talking to Adobe on FB, they made me do some stuff like uninstall, make a new windows account, ect.. They finally said they are going to send a ticket into engineering.
Hopefully, they will look at the problem.
My hypothesis is that PS is 20+ years old and they just crammed too much into it and now it's bloatware.
I have been noticing it get slower and slower with each new version regardless of the new powerful speeds of machines and hardware.
This seems to be par for the course for them, after all, look at what AE, flash, dreamweaver, ect has become.
I hope they intend at some point redoing all their software or making the "Adobe Program", there is no reason why photoshop, illustrator, xd, or InDesign, or animate have to different programs, they all seem to have overlapping capabilities, they should just make one program at this point and let these old programs die.
Well, I guess it's not just me then....I got a Windows laptop last fall, because PSCC19 was really lugging down my 10 yr old laptop......new one has 64gb of RAM, 2-2tb hard drives, and I sprang for a 1tb SSD drive to use for a scratch disk. Everything was working beautifull until 2020 came out....I am so glad I kept 2019, but sure don't feel like I'm getting much bang for my buck from Adobe right now..........just frustrating, even though I'm a hobbyist, I thought I was getting something special when I finally switched to PSCC
I'm hoping this clears up but this thread tells me it may not.
Same stuff: Just upgraded to PS2020. Import file as embedded, tried to resize with fixed ratio (SHIFT + drag from corner). Nope. Ratios were not constrained. Also, image went gray as I was resizing it. Also, image goes gray as I switch to another app on another monitor (with Photoshop still visible). Also, Image Adjustments don't preview while I adjust, but once I mouse-up. And while I'm adjusting it reverts to the original view (before Adjustments). All just sloppy stuff.
Hoping a computer reboot will clear issues, but if not, I just signed up for the 1 year photography package. Not an impressive start and may be looking to Corel to serve my design needs.
Update: figured out how I can revert back to PS 2019 (v20.0.5). Problem solved until they fix their latest release.
