PS Elements 12 very slow, very very slow!

Hi, I started using Ps elements 12 to try it out. My past experience with elements is flawless speed but with 12 for example using the smudge tool can sometimes take up to 30+ seconds to complete. I can actually watch the progress are the picture as it transitions. Is there a setting that I cant find or something causing this to happen?


Pc specs

Win 7 ultimate

3.8ghz i7 haswell

16gb 1666ghz ram

gtx 770 2gb card

Ps elements and projects I'm working on are installed on a SSD.


So with those specs it should run smooth.


Help please!

    My guess, if you aren't waiting for the organizer to generate thumbnails, would be the auto analyzer. It's not as easy to kill in PSE 12. Go into task manager and stop it there and see if it makes a difference.
