while in crop mode in PS CC 2015, using the arrow keys to nudge it, the whole image flickers from checkered board to image and back... It is worse when the image is rotated to anything than the standard ratio.

Are you on Mac or Windows?

I would suspect a bad video driver.

Determine what video card you have and go *directly to the manufacturers website (nVidia or ATI/AMD)* and download the latest driver:

Just doing Windows Update won't give you the latest and greatest drivers. You must go directly to your card manufacturers website to check for driver updates.
