Why are photoshop and premier elements so laggy?

Feb 19, 2013 6:07 PM

I have an i7 3770 comp running Windows 8 with 32gb RAM and a 128gb SSD + 2tb hard drive. I run plenty of other intesive programs without any problems, but for some reason both premier elements and photoshop elements run stupidly slowly. What's up with this?

    First, check to see if the auto analyzer is running. (Organizer>preferences>media analysis) See if shutting it down makes any difference. Also, if you've imported a huge number of photos (like in the thousands), PSE will run slow till organizer is done  generating thumbnails. Sometimes it helps to let it run overnight to finish up.
