I use Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom. When using Photoshop and I'm working along, it just freezes. Can't do anything else. I wait a few minutes and all of the sudden it's back working. Anyone have a clue as to what's causing the problem or thr reason it's happening?

Which OS version are you using?

Do you have any third party plugins installed?

Are you running other apps (including Bridge) when it freezes?

Are you using a tablet to drive PS & LR?

I am running under Mac 10.7.4 on an iMac. Generally when it freezes I have LR and PS open along with mail, and Firefox. I have OnOne and Topaz plug-ins installed although they are not always active when the freeze happens. I use a WACOM Intous 3 tablet for all my work in both PS and LR.
