Photoshop is taking long time to save files

It seems to be taking a really long time for Photoshop to finish saving a photo with actions applied. It never used to take more than a few seconds to save, but recently it is taking several minutes or longer to save back to Lightroom and gets stuck at like 98% saved. Would it be best to just re-install photoshop?

Hi There,

Sorry to hear about long saving times of Photoshop, could you please let us know the exact version of Photoshop you're working with?

 

Could you please try resetting the preferences of Photoshop and let us know if it helps with the issue? https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html

 

Note: Make sure that you back up all your custom presets, brushes and actions before restoring Photoshop's preferences. Migrate presets, actions, and settings

 

Regards,
Sahil

I am working on Photoshop CC 2019

I tried resetting preferences. Still having the same issue.

I re-installed Photoshop, did not help.

I pull in a photo from Lightroom. Add some actions and minor 'fixes' and then save the file to pop back over to Lightroom. It saves quickly all the way up until 98% saved. Then it gets stuck there for like 10 minutes or more.

 

Super frustrating and slowing me up on finishing my sessions.

Having the same issue. It started a couple of weeks ago out of nowhere. I have not changed anything in my workflow. Most of the time I have to "Force Quit" Photoshop and then restart my computer.

So I think I figured it out. I am running MacOs and I was saving the files to an external that I shared with a Windows PC. So the external was formatted to Fat32 so it could be used on both. When i formatted the external to Journaled(MacOS), my files were able to save perfectly fine.

Thats a known issue with Catalina and Mojave OS. Mac started upping the security restrictions and it buggered external drives that were not Mac formatted. Glad you were able to resolve.
