Adobe, pls finally improve stability and performance of the core CC apps,
Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign and Lightroom.

Especially Photoshop and Illustrator's performance
are disgraceful, even on a full spect Mac.
I've been running them both on a beefed up iMac Pro (64GB Ram)
and a top notch MacBook Pro 2018 (32 GB Ram),
and the performance is seriously awful. As soon as I get a larger PSD
file with 50 + Layers it's lagging. It's slow. Spinningwheel of death constantly on.
Tried everything software wise I can, but the whole industry is complaining
about the CC apps and their performance. There's still not proper multi-GPUsupport for these apps, neither is an eGPU compatibility in place.

Adobe, wake up, look at the performance of Affinity, they offer blazing fast
apps without a monthly fee, support all the power features macOS offers
to make it an incredible experience for Pro users. They offer full flagged
counter parts on iOS instead of a Photoshop that literally missed everything.

Adobe, I please beg you, focus on make your core apps really great again.
We don't care about super fancy new features or all of that AI stuff,
we just really want the apps we work with every single day to run our
creative businesses to actually improve our workflows, cut down the time
they take to process and save us from a mental breakdown.

Give us the core apps, optimised for speed, performance and stability
and finally add proper multi- and eGPU support. Every Notebook user
will be forever grateful.

If the CC prices continue to go up and the performance continues
to stagnate as it has been for quite a while, I'll probably join many of
my colleagues in switching to Affinity, even tho they don't offer all the features
you guys do, but in the end, time is money, and they offer a much faster,
stable and hassle free experience atm. So please, please make
Photoshop!!!! Illustrator, Indesign and Lightroom really great again
on the Mac. Thank you!

Thanks for mentioning an alternative to PS.  I agree with your comments, we want Adobe to reliably run and not all of the continuous troublesome “improvements!”
