Photoshop 20.0.3 Excruciatingly Slow

  • 3
  • Problem
  • Updated 3 months ago
Over the last few updates i the v20 range (perhaps even before) Photoshop has turned into a painfully slow tool to use, to the point that i can no longer do my work.

All brushes lag horribly.

Opening files is super slow

Resizing anything with the transform tools is so stutter and laggy that i give up.

This is out of the blue. before the last few releases, photoshop was performing so fast. Now, literally stopping my client work!

I have started with eh shift key, cleared and reset prefs multiple times, messed with RAM settings. 

PLEASE HELP

my system info is below:

Not sure if this will help but one thing that helped me with my PS taking 6-7 minutes to open, (Now 2 minutes) and forever to open new files was going to Edit/Purge/All.  I do it constantly now just to clear it out.

I am thinking of doing the same. My graphic card is not compatible and is interfering with internet for memory. No way to update my driver because they no longer have updates since 11-2015

I have to agree, the last couple of releases of Photoshop CC and Camera Raw seem to run slower and slower. It kind of crept up on me, but now I spend a fair bit of time waiting on the swirling or rotating dots (busy signal). And if I launch Photoshop CC (v 19.17) even that launches the newer ACR.

It was less than 2 years ago I built my new PC, and hand picked what I thought were reasonably fast components for running Photoshop, the only real reason I had for upgrading my computer. Now it feels like that hardware is outdated. And I'm having trouble imagine what it would take in hardware, to get back the old Photoshop that didn't distract me with poor response time.

Disappointing, to say the least.

How many fonts are being loaded by your Extensis plugin? Have you tried deactivating all the fonts? What about brushes?

I have not. My brushes got reset when i cleared my prefs and it had no effect. i won't uninstall fonts as in v19 its fine, and i have many projects and don’t want to lose more time.

When I updated to PS 2019 (20.0.3) the graphics processor wasn't recognised as it had been in 19.1.6. (it is a Radeon Rx Vega M GL built into a relatively new HP laptop). Camera Raw recognised it OK though. Anything that uses the graphics processor extensively such as Liquify was really slow. I fixed it in the Registry as follows:

In Windows, Click Start, Run, and type REGEDIT.  Click OK.
In the registry Editor, open HKEY_CURRENT_USER.
Open Software
Open Adobe
Open Photoshop
The should be one or more numbers such as 130.0.  Right click on the largest number and select New, DWORD Value and name it AllowOldGPUS.  Double click on it and set the value to 1.

Now in Photoshop, Edit, Preferences, Performance you should see the graphics processor enabled and advanced settings can be used to optimise it.

Not sure if this will fix your problem, but it worked for me.

Thanks, so if I do what you stated above will it help me? Right now I have an  AMD Radeon HD 8670D which is not supported in PS CC 2019

I would give it a go. The 8760D is nearly 5 years old now, but should still be capable of being used. The 710 I mentioned would be roughly similar capability, if you upgrade then a newer, more capable card would be a better plan. For future compatibility.

Okay, thank you so much.  If something goes wrong what do I have to do to change it back?  I'm not a programmer...LOL

It's quite a benign change. It be turned off by editing its value back to 0. Don't change anything else in the registry. Setting a system restore point before making a change is always a sensible thing to do though.

I am experiencing the same thing. Running 20.0.4 and have to wait a few seconds for many actions. I have never had this with Photoshop before this last version.

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.
