iMac running slow

Hi Folks, I am running Mojave on a late 2012 iMac, 32GB RAM, 34GHz Intel core i7 prcessor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX (2GB) graphics card, 800GB headroom on the HDD--an old but relatively competent computer. But, its been running slow for a few months now and I can't figure out why. I work daily in Premiere, Photoshop and LightRoom--all software is updated but I am concerned that software updates may be taxing this older model. Although I may run all three programs at th same time--It doesn't seem to make any difference if Premiere is running on its own. I have been working with 20 sequences open in the timeline--but I assume that given the nature of digital this is not using scads of RAM. Any thoughts?

Hi George,

We appreciate you writing in. The system's performance may get affected because of the computer's specifications and the complexity attached with the applications' usage.

Have you considered updating the macOS?

Let us know. We're here to help
