Our design business has been using Photoshop since it launched in 1990 and we have moved through every system upgrade, on practically every Mac out there. I finally upgraded to Catalina (10.15.5 on my MacPro) and downloaded Photoshop 2020. I expect little bugs here and there; work arounds, etc. But this is the first time Photoshop has failed to meet basic performance standards. Like, when I drag a brush across my screen (2300 X 1800px, 300dpi), I literally only see my brush stroke and a super pixelated area of the papery layer underneath. Everything else is just blank (white) because it won't render the entire page. Wait, what?! I've been such a fan, such an advocate for Adobe over the span of my entire career. I still want to be. But why should we all have to find ourselves here searching for answers on how to make photoshop 2020 useable? Why should we even be thinking we have to bail on 2020 and go backwards? Shoudn't there be some basic expectation met right out of the box? I didn't trash CC 2018 (skipped 2019 because I feared losing plugins) version but now I can't even 'save for web' with it now. Why should I have to google my way out of these problems? I'm still a fan but I'm just not getting why some of these huge issues weren't discovered and addressed in testing before it was launched. I mean, Catalina launched Oct. 2019, some 8 months ago. Please help me not have to bail on the app that has literally helped defined my productivity, my creativity, my career, my life for 30 years. Note to readers: I don't even know if there's something else out there. I don't want to even look! 🙂 Thank you.
