Since upgrading to Mojave, I'm experiencing serious lag time with PS, especially when opening a file from LR (Classic CC 8.0) into PS and saving a file is PS. It's taking minutes, as in 3-5 minutes or longer to open files from LR into PS. Work is taking at least 3x as long to do. I've uninstalled Adobe CC products. If anyone has any tips, I'll gladly try them.

If you open a file directly from PS, does it take as long?  Or does it only take this long when doing Edit In from LR?

Try this: In LR, right-click a thumbnail and do Show In Finder / Show In Explorer. Then in Finder / Explorer, right click the file and select Open With > Adobe Photoshop.   Does that take as long as doing Edit In directly from LR?

The answer to both....no. It's much faster opening it that way. Although I haven't looked to see about saving and sync'ing my LR folder after editing.

I went back to high Sierra, as their are too many glitches in Mojave, I was on to apple support for 3 hours and went onto adobe and waited on their support line for another 2 hours,  now everything is working fine again

I tried, but I didn't have a backup from high Sierra...my stupidity. I tried manually to do it and files weren't loading correctly.
