i am so annoyed with photoshop cs6 i think I'm going to go insane! it is the slowest thing ever. i originally had cs5 but had to upgrade to cs6 because my pc broke and wanted to swap platforms to the mac, however i was told it was an old version and wasn't able to do that. So i spent an extra £180 upgrading to cs6. i am not a photoshop whizz but i don't think i should have to change setting or close documents to make the programme work faster, this should be a lot better than the CS5. i am so upset because it is taking me HOURS to get one of my paintings edited. PLEASE someone help, can i just have CS5 installed onto the mac, it is disgraceful how this product has been launch with all these problems.

So something on your system is making Photoshop run slowly.

It could be the system configuration (not enough RAM, slow disk, etc.).
It could be another application (firewall, antivirus, font manager, etc.).
It could be a third party plugin.
It could be a corrupt font or OS font cache.

Without a lot more information, we can't easily narrow down what exactly on your system is making Photoshop run slowly.
