Photoshop running very slow

Hello,

I recently upgraded to Photoshop CC 2018, and the software is running incredibly slow.  CC 2017 ran absolutely fine, but 2018 is getting to the point where it's becoming unusable.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled twice.  Adjusted Preferences > Performance, increased the memory allowance and set the software to 'Basic' in the advanced options - nothing changed.

I'm running an iMac High Sierra, 4ghz intel core i7, 32gb memory, AMD Radeon graphics card.  I'm still able to run high end models in 3D software, and render them in good time, so I don't believe the it's a performance issue by the computer.

Has anyone got any tips on how to help?  I'm a professional artist and this severely impacting the work I do.

Thanks,
