New to posting here but been using PS since v3. I have two licences for two users for full CC and a few other bits as part of a small business subscription.
Neither of teh PS users are 'power users' and the current files we are editing are modest JPGs of <3000 x3000. Device being used in one case is a Surface Pro7 with i7/16Gb. Not top I realise for proper photo editing but PS has worked fine for many years with similar spec hardware.
But recent PS updates have rendered absolutely bloody useless. I struggle to crop a <1000x1000 graphic as the system is like working through treacle.
I mistakenly clicked update in CC App and that was the end of a working system!
Have tried removing everything and reinstalling but still useless.
Can anyone advise what the latest 'solution' to this problem is. I've read various posts from upgrading to 2021 (22.x?), upgrade Windows (20H2 already).
Thanks for the link. I tried all of those suggestions and performance improvements but to no avail. The only 'limitation' I have is that the SSD in my device is effectively program and scratch as there is only one storage device. Having said that, PS was working perfectly well until recently with that hardware setup.
To give an example, I just started PS, created a new blank document of about 2000x1500. It probably took 30 seconds for the page to appear. That can't be right?
