My photoshop started acting up today and won't stop, whenever i try to resize an image or shape, it simply freezes, and i have to terminate the application with task manager, any ideas? I have gone as far as to re-installing, to no avail.
I would suggest resetting preferences whenever Photoshop acts up and you know you did not change anything.
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?
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 just disabled the GPU use and it worked! thanks so much
Disabling gpu dosent help either.
using photoshop 22.0 on iMac 27" with 2 GB amd radion and 8GB memory. Have plenty of free space available on the drive. Please help.
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?
Mine is doing the same thing. I am unable to resize any photos without it crashing. I tried allowing photoshop to use more memory, and then the suggestion to reset preferences on quit. Any other fixes? I am using version 22.3.1 20210406.r.122 990be2c x64 on Windows 10.
same for me. impossible to crop a photo in photoshop...
Mine is doing the same thing. I think since the last CC update (that happened last week). I reset the preferences and GPU is disabled. Windows 10 Pro. Version 22.31 updated 5 days ago.
wow. I did not experienced it. Can you send us the detailsof memory? Platform?
I have 16 GB installed RAM on an ASUS PC AMD A8-5500 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 3.20 GHz. Windows 10.
I've reset the preferences and the GPU is disabled. I believe what fixed it last time was uninstalling and then reinstalling Photoshop, but now it's happened again (I can't crop an image and trying to do so crashes Photoshop). I have the latest version 22.3.1.
Uninstalling and reinstalling Photoshop did not work.
I reduced the amount of RAM Photoshop could use and then crop worked. Preferences > Performance > Memory Usage. Set it at maximum of ideal range (10729).
