Photoshop: CS6 Slow compared to CS5.1 with large files

  • Problem
  • Updated 5 years ago
  • Solved
PS CS6 has a lot of enhancements and great features. it launches very fast, and the control is very responsive and smooth.

although i am experiencing some speed issues with very large files. compared to CS5.1, where i don't have any of these issues.

the files are PSBs, 9000x8000px, 80+layers, RGB, 8bit

i have the same performance settings for both, cs6 and cs5
i am working on MAC PRO, 16GB ram, SSD scratch, 2TB raid, Radeon HD 5770, Snow Leopard.

the main issues i have are:

- no refresh when i move the curve on adjustment layer. the refresh comes after i let go.
- jagged pan
- extremely slow moving of layers and layer groups, even if they are with smaller dimensions (800x400pix)

again, working with files with less layers or smaller dimensions is very fast.

thanks for your help and support!

here i would like to quote chris cox from another topic:

"For everyone else, CS6 is the same speed or faster. So what is different between then on your system to cause the slowdown?
Try comparing the system info logs for both versions and see what differences jump out."

how can i compare the system logs? do you mean the history log?

Same here. Photoshop CS6 is incredibly slow. In fact it's not usable. I'm thinking I want to cancel my subscription if I can for now.

I'm not sure what good it'll do actually complaining about this but I too am experiencing SERIOUS lag with CS6. We were on the cusp of upgrading but I'm going to advise my design department to refrain from doing so in light of the performance lag! Given the premium most of us have to pay for the software is seems beyond justification that the performance would be this 'faulty'!

Rant over.

ok, i compared the system logs of both CS6 & CS5.1. everything seems to be equal.
the only thing which is different is that there is Open CL in cs6 but there is nothing next to it.

i turned Open CL off from the performance settings, but nothing changed.

the slow control is still there.

it is really strange, when i move a small layer group it even shows a progress bar for the movement??

in cs5.1 it's almost instant, yes it needs some time, but it's not comparable with cs6.

what else can i try?
i just bought CS6 WEB&DESIGN premium, because i love the new features, but if it works that slow i should stick to cs5.

Laden,

can you do a test for me. From the Layers panel menu choose Panel Options and choose "None" for thumbnails. Does the performance improve?

so, here the results form the test:

without thumbnails the performance improves a little. it seems to me that it's slightly slower than cs5 but almost there.
even if it works better, i can't work without the thumbnails.

on the other hand this didn't improve the behavior of the curves adjustment layer.
i played around with it and that is what i discovered. the curve doesn't refresh only during the first time i move a point. and after i let the curve point i see the result. when i move the curve again it refreshes in real time.
the same happens with another curve adjustment i want to change or create. first time nothing, than everything works fine.

other interesting thing is that when i turn the thumbnails in cs5 i dont' see any improvement. it doesn't make any diference when they are turned on or off.

thanks!

OK. Yeah, I know turning off thumbnails isn't desirable, but it confirms that you're seeing a known issue we're investigating. I wouldn't expect a difference in Cs5 with thumbnails off - well maybe a tiny difference - but again, it confirms something we're investigating. On the curves thing, I'll have QE see if they can repro that and try and understand what you're seeing.

Also, I would like to see a full copy and paste of your Photoshop system info so we can try to find like hardware here and look for system specific clues.

Upgraded and have been using CS6 for last couple days. In Photoshop CS6, nudging a layer group displays a progress bar and takes several seconds each time. Sometimes infuriatingly slow.

This post (https://twitter.com/#!/eskalationdk/s...) on twitter suggests if you press command-t to transform the layer group it nudges with acceptable performance, however this is not an effective workaround for me.

Ah, I can confirm that turning thumbnails off in my layers palette fixes my issues while nudging layer groups. Kind of a bummer to lose the thumbnails, but at least the software is usable again.

Cool. Thanks for trying that out and confirming. We're investigating the problem.

Yes, that's working out (sort of), but it's not really a fix since we need thumbnails in our everyday work. Please report as soon as you fix this.

The only big problem I see is that your video card driver is way out of date (2010).

Oops, MacOS - Apple doesn't update drivers that often.

This is a serious issue for me, Photoshop CS 6 is unusable for large files, as soon as I switch to the zoom tool it locks up for a few minutes, I can't believe the difference in performance between CS5 and CS6, this really needs a fix asap.

FIrst we need to figure out what it is about your system that is making it slow. Most people are seeing CS6 as fast, or faster, than CS5.

So what is different about your system?
Video card drivers?
Other software?

I have a standard issue Mac Pro, to be 100% crystal clear, I still have Photoshop CS5 installed and it's still working OK, I only have this problem in Photoshop CS6.

I did have the CS6 beta installed but I uninstalled it before installing the release versions via a subscription - is there some way this may be causing the trouble.

hi Chris,
i was so happy when Jeffrey said that you are investigating that issue and also when i saw that others are having the same problem.
now i am a little confused regarding your reply.

- first thing is that i am working on a mac and we get our driver updates with the system update. my system is always up to date. there is no other way to get a video card driver update. i am wondering that you didn't now this.

- second thing is that i am working as a professional with photoshop for a long time. it is very easy for me to see the slightest performance drawback, an i already told you that my settings are exactly the same as CS5.

CS6 is very fast and faster than CS5 for users working with regular sized SLR 6000x4000px photos, with probably 20+ layers. or with web design comps with no matter how many layers but very small resolution.

i work with comps sometimes exceeding 12000x10000px and with 100+ layers. whit these files CS6 is definitely slower than CS5. this is my job, not my hobby, i am working with this files every day, so i'll stick to CS5 till there is a fix for it.

thanks!

yes when i move a layer group with few layers inside it is very slow. i can imagine that the curves adjustment redraw issue i'm having is also connected with this.

Curves should not be related, but you should still try turning off layer thumbnails and see if that solves all the slowness you're seeing.

I agree with Laden. Even after turning Layer Thumbnails off, I'm still seeing a noticeably slower performance - and I upgraded from CS4. Opening larger files, moving layer groups and saving the files is all slower and I think it's an issue that goes beyond video card drivers.

Same problem here... :(

Nudging groups of layers is too slow (and it's obvious since I have upgraded to CS5>CS6 few days ago). Everyting was working ok in CS5 :(

Please help!

Same thing here!

I've tried turning thumbnails off, which is actually my preferred method of working to maximize the number of layers I can see at once, but despite the fact that it is an improvement it is *still* slower when compared to CS5.

Additionally, I'm also experiencing a slow-down when it comes to scrolling the document or dragging the canvas around.

I've tested Photoshop CS6 performance on a few machines now and on large files the performance on my Macbook Air 11" is far better than on my MacPro 2x2.4Ghz!!

There's obviously something seriously bad going on, could it be something to do with non-SSD disks?

David, that's really interesting that an Air outperforms a Mac Pro on CS6.

I wouldn't say it has to do with non-SSDs underperforming, though. I am on a MacBook Pro with an aftermarket SSD that generally screams in every other area of performance, and I'm experiencing this slow-down issue.

That's useful info, just a thought, is your scratch disk using the SSD as well?

I tried both ways: 1. to set my SSD as the scratch disk and 2. to set my normal hard drive as the scratch disk. There was no noticeable difference in performance in either case.

I am currently using the beta, patiently waiting for Adobe to send me the real one hoping the issue would be resolved by now.

From what I can read this isn't the case. But this is not limited to large files !

I work on web interfaces and moving more then a few layers can cause several seconds of delay and I discovered for the first time the nudge waiting bar.

I have never seen this waiting bar on any Ps version before even when working on rather large print files.

I tried contacting Adobe the day after the beta was released and never had any feedback on this issue.

Yes, let's hope they are going to release a fix soon.
but for now i would suggest everyone who has the same issues to vote for this topic.

till now we have only 5 stars:(

this topic is not "in progress" or even "Acknowledged"

thanks!

We've never seen a slowdown beyond the known layer thumbnail slowdown. We haven't reproduced any other slowdown, so we can't acknowledge such a problem or possibly fix what we've never seen.

Our only guess is that there is still something odd about your system causing the slowdown that only a few people are seeing.

As the problem only exists CS6 can you give us any insight at all into what could be causing it?

My Mac Book is 2 weeks old and has not been customized much at all. The Photoshop CS6 install is also totally standard from the download link - no customizations or changes. With smaller files like website designs with a few dozen layers, it's fast and responsive. With dozens or hundreds of layers and larger files it's much slower than CS4 and 5 to do pretty much anything.

We have no idea what is different about your systems compared to millions of other users not seeing a slowdown.

We need you to help tell us what is different about your system that might cause a slowdown: third party plugins, external software, configuration, bad drivers, etc.

Do we vote at the top by agreeing that we have this problem or is there a specific place on the Adobe site we should be voting? I would very much like to see it fixed as would all of us in this thread. Thanks!

I am surprised that the layer thumbnail slowdown didn't raise a red flag before the final release.

It's only a noticeable problem on documents with dozens of layers, when you try to move many layers at a time. But yes, I wish it had been caught sooner...

i'm sorry chris, but millions of other users maybe use PS with only few layers and don't see the issue.

on the other hand many professionals working with huge files every day don't switch so quickly. they would wait to see if there are any issues with the new software. so probably they gonna have these issues too and we gonna hear from them later this year.

the systems of the other users here, having the same problem are very different, from diferent generations, and all have the same problem. so there should be something. maybe the problem is bigger than only the layer icons, and maybe when you find the solution the other slowness problems are fixed too.

Wondering if they asked the other millons of people about performance? CS6 is heavier and we probably need faster systems.

This performance issue is normal for any program that grows up. Try running W7 in an old Pentium machine...

The problem is if you already have a fast system and the newest one...

It's a fact that CS6 is heavier, so a 100% of users should be seeing a reduction in speed depending on their system, if you have a really fast system the slowdown is probably not big enough to annoy you.

I doubt millions of users have not seen this issue since many of the people will have a bit older systems, maybe round a year old?

How can Adobe know that millions of users don't have this issue? Many of the users don't complaint, other will never see the issue because of their techniques. And I've never received a performance poll from Adobe.

How many complaints does Adobe need to aknowledge when they really have a problem? Maybe a few complaints can reflect what millions of users see?

I'm just hoping for a fast update that makes this problem a bit less annoying.

I agree. Each new version of Photoshop requires more system resources than the last. It's never been any other way. CS6 though is of course different in that it is also seriously buggy. Both Illustrator and Photoshop.

Agreed. Illustrator crashes on a daily basis when trying to export to PNG or TIF (depends)... I fail to see how an i5 processor and 12GB of RAM are not sufficient to run latest CS without problems. :/

I'm having the same problem moving large layer groups. My current file size is only 12.8 MB, but I'm still having problems.

It seems to run even slower on a non-SSD.

Probably no corelation, but I've also noticed that the Document Size information (example: Doc: 4.81M/1.58G) is way up on CS6 (here's a comparison: http://cl.ly/2X3C3A1C0q1a45230z1a).

My colleagues and I are not sure if we should do the update or stick to CS5.

It's really frustrating and I agree that being made to feel like it's our fault for working with large files that have multiple layers is ludicrous.

In fact, as I write this comment, I'm waiting for what appears to be between 2-3 full minutes to open a file that's 5.2 MB. Only 2 other applications open, no other PSD's open. Brand new Mac with tons of Ram. The common thread is that the more layers (and nested layer groups) you have, the slower CS6 is.

I asked a co-worker to open the same file in CS5 and it opened almost instantly. Considering this is what I work with all day every day, I'm essentially now about 30-40% as productive as I used to be.

does anyone have also a refresh issue when moving the opacity slider, or moving the curve on adjustment layer.

with very large files i don't see an instant refresh when changing adjustments or opacity. it doesn't matter how long i wait, the refresh comes after i let go.

this happens not always, but most of the time.

just want to know if this is related?

thanks!

This may be a red herring, but it is worth a shot. Could the people who are having the slow down try a couple if things for me?

1. Go Preferences:Performance Pane:
2. Click on Advanced Settings...
3. Switch mode to Basic.
4. Restart PS

Does the problem go away?

if NO proceed.

1. Go Preferences:Performance Pane:
2. Uncheck "Use Graphics Processor"
3. Restart PS

Does the problem go away?

Trying to narrow down if this is a OGL problem or not.

If none of these fixes your issue be sure to go back to the settings the way they were before you started turning options off.

A quick way to do this is just to trash preferences.

Cmmd+Alt+Shift after launch and click OK to the clear preferences.

That points toward your display driver as being the cause.

Chris, if that's the case, then is there anything I can do about that? I don't know exactly what a display driver is.

Display driver == video card driver == GPU driver. Updating the driver might help, or contacting the GPU maker to work on fixing the bug.

How do you account for the issue being experienced on a brand new Mac Book with no customizations done to it? It's literally 10 days old and all the settings are standard? To me it seems like a lot of the heavy users that work with large files have not yet upgraded because they're evaluating it - but those of us that have all seem to have this issue with larger files. Do we all have display driver issues? Seems like too much of a coincidence to be the user's fault(s). Plus if our display drivers were all out of date, why does CS4 and CS5 work so much faster with larger files?

moly, the way to update your drivers on mac is to update your system. if your system is up to date, than you have the latest drivers.

it was already mentioned here. strange that the employees here don't know this.

Looking into this more I'm not convinced this is a display driver problem. If I turn off "Use Graphics Processor" I'm still getting massive delays when zooming after initially opening the file. After a 3-4 minutes the file seems to settle down and then it gets better but then it'll start beachballing again if I zoom out again.

No, That is a more limited issue: just moving a bunch of layers, caused by a slowdown in drawing the thumbnails in the layers palette.

You can work around that by setting the thumbnail size to "none" in the layers palette options. We're still working on a proper fix for the thumbnails.

Finding ACR works well in CS6 ...... once an image is opened it is constance spinning wheel...... move image to new blank layer to add more background...... spinning wheel..... use levels or curves, spinning wheel.....

CS6 is just so slow, I have gone back to using CS 5.1

I have same issues on Windows 7 x64 box with 16 Gigs of DDR3 Ram and an i7 2600k @ 3.4 Ghz (8 core)...also have latest nVidia drivers with 560Ti...I personally never had great results in any previous release with 3d accelleration on (I woudl only turn it on as needed).

Although turning off previews in layer pallet made a huge difference for me...a good 50% performance boost when moving any layer or group, its still absolutely not anywhere near what i would call usable.

I think i messed up by installing CS6 on a disk rather than on an SSD. My cs5 and 5.1 was on SSD (the application part)..I think I am going to try and install it on the SSD after removing my install from the Disk drive. We'll see what happens.

As with others, this is only on larger files... I have to believe it is a caching issue of some sort. I guess I'll keep playing with it and see what happens. If not I'll reinstall CS5.1 and only use the features I wante from CS6 as needed.

As a follow up to the above, i just uninstalled everything, made sure my computer was completely updated, rebooted and then deleted everythigna dobe adn then reinstalled application on SSD rather than Disk and reupdated software with No change whatsoever in results...
