Photoshop CC -> performance down, memory usage up.

Jun 27, 2013 11:38 AM

Tags: #photoshop #cc #memory_usage #slow_performance

I recently switched to Photoshop CC.

 

I noticed performance was slow, memory usage was huge. At first I thought it might be because I was processing somewhat larger panoramas than previous ( eg merging 25 images at 21 MP each ).

 

Then my SSD drive crashed when the sysem ran out of memory, and I can't recover it.

 

I reinstalled Mac OSX 10.7.5 on the original HD and re-installed PS. Now my network bandwidth has jumped from under 1 GB uploaded per day, to 20GB, 30GB, 44 GB uploaded.

 

I don't know how much of this can be traced to PS CC, other than it's slow performance and high memory usage, but it' a suspicious coincidence.

    Hi legrady,

     

    I'm moving this thread to the Photoshop General forum where you should be able to find better help than in the beginner forum.

    Photoshop isn't uploading much unless you tell it to (like sync preferences).

    And the only thing it download by default is Lens Profiles.

    The CreativeCloud app does most of the downloading, when you tell it to install new apps.

     

    MacOS does get really flaky when the OS volume runs out of space - that should be avoided if at all possible.

     

    And Photoshop CC doesn't have increased memory usage over Photoshop CS6.

     

    I think you're looking at some coincidences, or bugs we just haven't seen (like corrupt fonts, bad third party plugins, etc.).

    I'm having a very similar problem. Since switching to photoshop CC I can no longer successfuly edit multiple images as I was able to do in CS6.

     

    I have a Mac Pro running 24GB of memory, yet I'm running out due to Photoshop hording memory. Upon launch, Photoshop CC was using circa 1GB of memory, having processed 7 120mb raw image files as tiffs, the memory being used by photoshop has increased to a whopping 11.81GB of memory. Surely this is an issue with Photoshop CC?

    Matthew, I'm just wondering how much space you have on your OS drive, as per Chris's comment in the post before yours?  In these days of SSDs for OS and program files, people do tend to run very short, and that might be especially true of they have just subscribed to the full Creative Cloud package (although the 12 apps I installed came to a lot less than 10Gb).

    Hi Trevor

     

    I've got about 80GB free on the boot drive so would be suprised if this is the issue. I think I've worked out the issue this morning whilst working on some wedding photos though - it appears that Photoshop CC is bagging all of the memory I've allocated to it, under the preferences. It is then swapping out between Active and Inactive memory threads.

     

    This appears to be a different behaviour to CS6 which only appears to use the memory if needed, not store it as inactive. As a result, CC slows down the whole system meaning things like Lightroom, iTunes, Safari etc have less to play with.

     

    Does anyone think that sounds plausible?

    I'm using Windows 7, and I honestly don't think I've seen anything like that happen.  Here you go.  I've just ramped Photoshop up to 80%, and the whole system is using <6Gb of 32Gb installed RAM.  I have several other things open, and the computer has been on for two days.  The only time I ever have to wait is when rendering out an export in Premiere Pro.

    Ive not experienced it before either - my settings don't look far off your's - the last time I checked, Photoshop CC was taking up 16.1GB!

     

    Thanks for taking the screen shots - doesn't look like it's brought me any closer but at least it rules out any issues I may have with set up within Photoshop CC itself, which is really useful.

    The memory behavior of Photoshop CC is identical to Photoshop CS6 (and CS5, CS4, etc.).

     

    We haven't seen any major leaks in Photoshop CC (and we did a BIG pass on our code to clean out even obscure leaks during CC development).

     

    But again, it is possible you are seeing something that we have not, due to external factors such as corrupt fonts, third party plugins, or third party utilities (anybody remember the misnamed "memory optimizers" from a few years back ? ).

    I vote coincidence - for me Photoshop CC is just as fast as and uses the same number of resources as Photoshop CS6.

    I have same problem on Mac.

    After closing my documents without quiting the app,

    memory usage does not decreace.

    I try to confirm with cleanning the histories and clipboard,

    but the usage did not changed.

    It occurs every time.

    I don't use any plug-ins.

    That's not a problem -- memory usage is not supposed to decrease when you close documents.

    Photoshop allocates memory up to the limit you set in preferences, then reuses that memory.

    Photoshop won't release the memory until the OS needs it (paging), or you exit photoshop.

    @Chris

     

    No.

    On my machine, PhotoshopCC eats huge memory compared with lower versions,

    it doesn't release after closing docs. And my machine become very very slow.

    CS6 and CS5 don't show this problem on same PSD.

    Again, it is not supposed to release memory after closing documents.

    And it worked the same way in previous versions.

     

    If Photoshop CC is using more memory than previous versions, check your preferences, disable third party plugins, then check for system problems (bad fonts, bad utilities, etc.).

    You need to listen to Chris.  Photoshop has always held onto the RAM it has allocated.

     

    If you think it didn't then you are mistaken.

     

    This strategy optimizes Photoshop's performance at some possible detriment to the other applications on your system.

     

    You choose how much RAM to allow it to grab in the Photoshop Performance preferences.

    Are you pretending to argue with a top Adobe engineer who has been writing Photoshop code since the last millennium?

    I second this, it's been doing this on my OSX system for a long time. When working with files above 1Gig you'll have to restart the program like every half hour. I'd really like to see this fixed...

    Wetouch, it sounds as though you don't have a system with enough resources to do all the things you want to do simultaneously, or that you haven't set Photoshop's memory usage limit properly.

     

    With a sufficiently powerful system with enough RAM one certainly does not have to "restart the program like every half hour".

     

    It's true that Photoshop allocates memory and holds onto it - as I mentioned, this is to optimize operation for Photoshop itself.  But this is its basic design, and I can assure you there is no "fix" to its basic design forthcoming.

     

    Perhaps you should describe what it is that your system becomes unable to do after a half hour.  It could be you're a simple configuration change away from not having to "restart the program every half hour".

    Yes, this is ridiculous. I was having some relatively minor issues with Bridge CS6 but am now on a different subscription and decided to switch to Bridge CC and Photoshop CC.  Big Mistake.  Pretty much made the problems worse and PS takes forever to load and open photos from Bridge.  I just doubled my RAM to three weeks ago and now it looks like I will be needing even more of it.  Adobe needs to get their act together.

    If Photoshop is taking more than 20 seconds to load... something is wrong with your system.

    (and 20 seconds is on the worst laptop we can still boot, normal launch is under 7, and with an SSD it's under 2 seconds)

    Robbert, do you have any 3rd party plug-ins installed?

     

    Did it always take a long time to start up or did something change?

     

    Could you please go into Photoshop and choose Help - System Info, copy the data, and post it here.

     

    Don't assume that complete responsibility for integrating software on your computer and make everything work well lies solely with someone else.

    I recently "upgraded?" to CC at my office. I mainly use Photoshop and Dreamweaver. I have noticed a huge reduction in responsiveness. I work on a less than 1-year-old iMac, and since upgrading it take 5 minutes or more to open files that use to be relatively quick to open. I also am having slow save times. Just to manipulate text in a text box, sometimes causes the spinning color wheel to come op for 10 or more seconds. This kind of slowdown is affecting my productivity. What can I check to speed up my load times?

    I have the same story with Adobe CC. I have Adobe CS5.5 on one system and CC on another. The file is ±400MB in size, and the CS5.5 uses 6-8GB of RAM while working on the file, while the CC uses 13-16GB of RAM on the same file.

     

    Both systems have 16GB RAM installed, and are allowing Photoshop to use up to 90%.

     

    I'm currently using 6 Cache levels and 1024 tile size.

    I've just 'upgraded' to Adobe CC purely because CS5 hadn't been updated by Adobe to open the new RAW files produced by my Nikon D600.  Naturally as I'm paying for the new version I have tried to use it but it runs amazingly slowly even though it is all set to run as CS5 was and I have sadly had to revert to CS5 for everything other than RAW processing.  Actions that run in CS5 without issue are laboured and slow in CC and after very little time a message simply appears saying that it can't function as there isn't enough RAM, something that hasn't ever happened with CS5.  Very disappointed to be spending out on the cloud for a product that doesn't work.  Have looked at Lightroom as an alternative but flaws in its layout and work processes mean I find it far more unsuited to RAW conversion than using CC or CS5...please get this memory usage problem solved!!!

    I have always worked with super huge files, because my designers never throw anything away, but since the switch my system slowed down incredibly. my file size is 250M using 150M and I show I have 750GB Free. i don't think it's a memory issue. I do see there is a Background File activity but I think it is from Dreamweaver. any hints, tricks??

    Aspeeder, you have a system that has 750GB of RAM? 

     

    Out of curiosity, what did you switch from?

    The memory usage returned back to me right after I closed photoshop. I just now went to preferences and made my 1tb external my scratch disk instead. I thought I was being hacked or something! Was completely draining all my memory down KBs! I don't use any 3rd party plug ins. Barely have time to lose the programs I have with the CC membership. I still love the product bc im learning but dude, it was literally murdering every single drop of the 25 GB I had on my hdd. Never seen a program do that. Now that I know that the scratch disk needs that much memory, I should be cool. Definitely wanted to see if anyone else was going through it. If I was a coder for the program, I'd be just as addamant as you.

    The fact that these techs are going to tell every single person that the problem with the memory being eaten up by photoshop CC is in their systems.
    The fact that these techs are going to keep telling people that the memory usage is the same as previous versions of Photoshop.
    I restored the latest version 17" model Macbook pro to its factory settings and replaced 8 gigs of ram with 16gigs and then did a new install of CC and I have to tell you that even if you set the preferences to 30% in Photoshop, it still eats 6 gigs without a document opened!  th bottom line is the more RAM addeed the more it takes.  I have been reading these posts since I subscribed to CC 4 months ago and nothing has changed. The Adobe specialists tell everyone that it is their system that is the problem and Photoshop is the same as it has always been.  Well I am sorry but, I find this unacceptable.  I am seriously thinking about getting rid of my CC membership because of what is happening. To me the difference between CC and CS5 is small.  Content Aware is the same to me whether it is CS5 or CC.  It is just sad that instead of finding a solution to this problem it is being denied instead. The fact is, we all need Adobe software because there is no other alternative so, we are at the mercy of those who tell us that the problem lies in our systems.

    That would be because the memory usage is about the same as previous versions, and we don't know of any major memory leaks in Photoshop CC (we do a lot of testing to find and eliminate memory leaks in Photoshop).

    And because we've seen third party drivers and third party plugins with memory leaks.

     

    If Photoshop consumes that much RAM without opening any documents - then you have about 6 Gigs of presets being loaded at launch (which is presets that you added, because by default Photoshop doesn't load that many presets, and consumes under 300 Meg at launch).

     

    If you mean that Photoshop cosumes that much after closing documents - then that is how much you allocated to Photoshop and used in your documents.  Photoshop not releasing memory back to the system until exit is perfectly normal behavior (otherwise it would run much slower).

     

    We can try to help you determine what is consuming memory on your system.

    But insisting that Photoshop is the cause when it is easily verified as not being the cause, won't help you.

    It is a sad state of affairs when the official response to all of these concerns about memory usage is 'it's your fault not ours'.  I've upgraded photoshop through each version from photoshop 7 and have never faced the issues that are occurring with CC.  If third party plugins and drivers affect Photoshop that badly then surely they should affect CS5 in the same way as they are affecting CC but I can assure you that my CS5 works perfectly and CC is unusable.  I, as many others in this discussion, feel that this is most certainly an issue for Adobe to solve, as long time Adobe users and supporters we deserve better service than this.  I am only able to use the RAW conversion element to CC (because CS5's version hasn't been updated to convert Nikon D600 or 800 RAW files) and once my tiffs or jpegs have been generated I then have to shut down CC and load up CS5 to work on them, I shouldn't be paying a monthly subscription to do that!

    I don't know of any presets.  What I do know is that CS5 didn't do this and none of the other CC apps seem to do this.  (if I have a bunch of presets on Photoshop wouldn't I have the same problem with Illustrator, Indesign, Dreamweaver ect.?  All I am saying is this:

     

    There was no problem before PS CC.

    I am certainly not the only one with this problem.

    Out of all these threads I have yet to read about one person who has been given a valid solution that has solved this problem.

     

    I am aware that me being insistant isn't going to help me but maybe you could help me by giving me a valid reason why this is happening. Telling me your software is verified as not being the cause means nothing to me.  I am not a programmer or sofware developer.  How I come to my conclusions is simple. It's the reasoning that works for those of us who live in reality, not denial..... Simple deduction.

    I have no answers but if it were a "bug" then tens of thousands would be experiencing the problem.  In the past versions there have also been long threads on memory leaks by a few individuals.  Why some experience this and others don't is a mystery, so the logical explaination is that is a something specific with the users computer or settings. 

     

    For Adobe to fix a problem they first have to be able to recreate it in the lab.  So far they have not been able to do this as far as I recall.

     

    I recently particiapted in a long thead "why is Bridge CC so slooooooow".  We tried various things but nothing worked.  He finallly just made a temp user and said the application just flies now.  Might try setting up another user account and see if anything changes.

    Chris, maybe you should give users the run-time option of having Photoshop do its memory management in the more conventional manner, where it releases the RAM back to the OS when it is through with it.

     

    If this means Photoshop runs slower, so be it.  They'll have their RAM for other things when Photoshop isn't actively using it.
