I just updated to PS 2021 and there is something seriously wrong with basic navigation. Zoooming and moving artwork leads to a strange and wild flickering. Literally the piece will start zooming in and out wildly regardless if the tool is engaged from the toolbar or via the Navigator. At the same time I lose all the definiton in any line work. The lines start switching between choppy and smooth as I scroll. There is also a huge amount of lag with general scrolling. I do mostly illustration and digital painting so this odd behavior makes the new version of PS unusable for me.
Playing with the Graphics Processor settings in the Performance tab made no difference. I made NO changes in any settings during or after the update.
Any suggestions would be appreciated
I've attached a PDF of my system info. I updated my video card driver and my Wacom drivers and that didn't help. Windows 10 did update yesterday.
Did you see this line in your PDF try other drivers

Thanks for the reply. According to the NVIDIA website ( yesterday morning) that was the latest driver for my video card. All my other 2d and 3d graphics softwae are working just fine, including Illustrator 2021. I can have PS 2020 AI 2021, Cinema 4D and DAZ Studio all open at the same time and there aren't any performance issues. Each program runs soothly without crashes, bizzare behavior or lagging. The issue is only happening in Photoshop 2021.
I'll check NVIDIA again. But I suspect I'll have to stick with Photoshop 2020 and hope a future update fixes the problem-again ( sigh).
I am experiencing SERIOUS lagginf problems on Mac as well.
I do not think this is only a driverproblem.
Each time a new release is dropped it's the same old sh*
I agree. It can't be just a driver problem if Mac users are having the same kind of issues . I suspect one of the new little features broke something- just like what happened with Illustrator a couple years ago when the editable toolbars were introduced.
This is the problem with subscription software. Things get added in a hurry to justify the rental fee and they wind up breaking the program.
I'm having the same problem, hopefully a patch is sent out soon.
FYI everyone. I was able to record a video of what happens. Hopefully it might lead to a clue. The video was recorded after I re-downloaded and re-installed the latest driver from the NVIDA site ( dated 10-29-2020) this morning. I also submitted a bug report to Adobe.
Thanks for sharing this. This flickering and wierd tranform animated effect is happning when flicking between open images using ~ + Tab. It's quite annoying when all I want to see is the difference between 2 versions and this flickering kills it.
No problem. I've also noticed a change in detail when this happens. The image goes from sharp to pixelated then sharp again. Very bizzare!
The same problem here, zooming with the mouse wheel suddenly disappeares after 4- 5 min when gpu-acceleration is installed.
I'm also having the same issue with the zoom. After 5 or 10 minutes, nothing will zoom in or out. Right-click to ZOOM, nothing...zoom tool, nothing...I have to exit the programme and get back in. Unfortunately for the first time EVER, I removed previous versions of photoshop during the 2021 update. 😞
I am having the same issue as well, and I am on Windows. I have rulers on the edges of my ps screen and when I try to zoom and scroll or move the image left to right, the rulers move like it is resizing but the image remains still, then in a minute it will catch up. I can't tell if it is a zoom issue or a filter issue. Because when i click on a layer, to view the image with out that layer, nothing changes. They layer could be a sharpened layer or a brightness layer.
Looks like it's not a high priority issues because as of right now PS 2021 is still totally unusable. 2020 on the other hand is rock solid.
Same problem here with PS 2021 on Mac OS. Totally uncontrollable behaviour of the zoom tool, screen freezing unexpectedly every now and then, plus "File couldn't be saved because of a program error" issue.
Really, really annoying(
I cannot zoom all the way in, it gets stuck and then wont zoom in or out Photoshop 22.1.0
