Previews are very slow when I click on the preview check boxes of many tools / photoshop cc 2017 /  Mac 10.12.5 : Most of the tools preview are not responding as fast as it can be. Sometimes a one second delay and another delay when unclicking. this gets very confusing. I am never sure of what I am looking at...

Hi

Could you clarify which tools you're talking about or what steps you take?  What are the size of the images you're working with?  What are the specs of your machine?  Apply a Gaussian Blur to a huge image is going to take time -- the preview has to be generated on the fly, based on what you set.  Really complicated effects and larger images take more resources, including time.  If you can give me some specifics, we can see if it's a problem or simply the limit of what can be done.

Thanks,
David

we're having this exact issue on some machines.  there's an intermittent, roughly 1second delay when checking the preview box for hue/sat, curves, other settings.

this is 10.10.5, mac pro tube.  most recent version of photshop capable on that os.
so gpu is very powerful on here.

curious as to what is going on with this.
