Photoshop is having glitches since I installed macOS Big Sur

When I am resizing pictures, the layer being resized is super quickly changing size on its own - getting bigger and then smaller, bigger, smaller etc. which makes it hard to adjust it to the right size apart from being annoying. 

 

Turning off Graphic Card Processor helped in speeding up overall performance, but not with this issue. 

 

I did not have these issues before Big Sur. I was waiting with this, because I hoped that restarting the computer several times and allowing it to adjust to Big Sur would change things, but it did not.

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop. As suggested by Kevin, please ensure you have updated Photoshop to the latest version (22.4.1) if you haven't already.

 

If you have, please check if Photoshop has the required permissions using the steps suggested below:

1. Go to the System Preferences for your Mac, then Security and Privacy, then select the Privacy tab.

2. Then select Accessibility from the list to the left & check if Photoshop is added to the list with a check mark in front of it.

3. If Photoshop is not a part of the list, please add it by unlocking the window first using the lock at the bottom left, then clicking the + icon & navigating to the Applications folder.

4. Also, grant permissions to Photoshop under Full disk access located in the same list as Accessibility.

5. Once done, restart the Mac & check if it helps.

 

If the issue persists, you can try to reset the preferences of Photoshop using the steps mentioned here: https://adobe.ly/2Qzc0K3

Please backup your settings prior to resetting the preferences. You can check: https://adobe.ly/2vNz6FG

 

Let us know how it goes!

Regards,

Nikunj
