Photoshop 19.0.1: Major performance issues since update

  • Updated 3 months ago

Since the latest update of a couple of days ago (19.0.1), Photoshop has had performance issues for me. In a document, no matter how many layers there are, even if the file is flattened, I'll make a selection with the quick selection tool, and I'll see the marching ants, but if I then add to the selection, all the marching ants will disappear. I know that everything I've selected is still selected, because if I do something to that selection, I'll see everything changed as it should be. Except that I won't see that change... until I zoom out and back in or move the window or something. So the window isn't refreshing as it should. This is an URGENT issue, and it's maddening! Cuts my productivity way down. Please help! D:

Hi Elizabeth, 19.0.1 was the prior version. 19.1 is the current version. Can you make sure you're up to date? https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/uptodate.html

It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info. Launch Photoshop, and select Help > System Info... and copy/paste the text in a reply.

I suspect your issue might be graphics card/driver related.

Thanks for your help! :) Sorry I got the version number wrong - I just checked, and the version I have is indeed 19.1.0, not 19.0.1.

My graphics cards are both AMD FirePro D500's, so it seems like they should be about to handle anything Photoshop could throw at them for the next several years. I sure hoped so when I bought my MacPro! :/

Here's my Photoshop System info:

Have you tried rebooting the entire system since the update? If not, give that a try.

If that doesn't work, I would suggest trying a restore of your preferences.

I have tried rebooting, so I just tried resetting the prefs, but it's still happening. :/

Ok. One more experiment. Go to Preferences > Performance... and uncheck Use Graphics Processor. Restart Photoshop. Does it still happen?

Ok that fixed it! :) But why can't I use my graphics processor? Is that a fix to come?

Hi Elizabeth,

Disabling your GPU is a test to determine if the problem is related to your GPU. Apparently it was/is. There is a new Photoshop update available today, 19.1.1. After you update, would you re-enable your GPU and see if the performance issues are still there for you? 

Thanks,
Hannah

This is totally anecdotal, but Photoshop seems positively zippy after upgrading to 19.1.1. Like trading in my Prius for a Volt. (On iMac, High Sierra 10.13.3).
