I would suggest resetting preferences whenever Photoshop acts up and you know you did not change anything.

Hi there,

 

Sorry that Photoshop is freezing while resizing an image. Which version of Photoshop are you using and on which operating system? Would you mind taking a look at this article https://helpx.adobe.com/in/photoshop/kb/photoshop-slow-lags.html and let us know if the mentioned solutions help the cause? 

 

Thanks,

Akash

Hello.

 

Ive just tried to reduce a picture and it froze. Could not do anything after that. I also had to kill the app on the control panel.

 

Im using the latest version thats on the creative cloud 21.1.2 20200410.r.136 2020/04/10

 

What resolved this situation for me was Disabling the GPU use. Deselect Preferences > Performance > Use Graphics Processor.

 

Hope this helps.

I have a similar problem with the latest version of Photoshop 2020.  I can crop, add layers, manage brightness, contrast, etc. to an image but when I try to resize it and click OK the program freezes. This never happened in Photoshop 2019 and I am using the identical steps in an attempt to resize and image.

21.2.1 20200716.r.265 2020/07/16 has just been released. See if that fixes it. Disabling the GPU is a troubleshooting step, but not good in the long run. You lose OPenGL features.

I'm having the same issue - running OS Catalina 10.15.6, Wacom tablet is up to date, latest version of PS. Freezes off and on while either resizing, using fonts, brightening or darkening depending on how it feels that day. Hugely frustrated. I tried the above suggestions and so far nothing has helped. Like the OP I have to force quit, and sometimes that doesn't work so I have to shut down.  Should I just reinstall?

My problem was solved by purchasing a new computer with more memory. Now Photoshop 2020 works perfectly.
