Photoshop freezes when I use the Shadow/Highlights filter. I'm using Mac OSX 10.15.3 and Photoshop 21.1.0, but before updating to the new Photoshop version this error did not occur.

Howdy Franz,

Are you getting this every time or just once?  Are you seeing this with multiple files?  What else are you running?  Do you have any third-party plugins?

I ask all this because I was doing this exact task last night on a machine with the same configuration, no freeze or crash.  And, to be sure, I literally just tried again.

There's at least one more trigger involved here...
