i wish to try to run PScs6 without my Nik and Topaz plug ins to see if it improves speed.
is there a way to do this short of simply deleting the plug ins???
From the reference:
Hold down Shift during startup to disable Optional and 3rd party plugins
To quickly determine whether Photoshop is loading a problematic optional or third-party plug-ins:
Hold down the Shift key and launch Photoshop. A dialog will appear during launch that reads "Skip loading optional and third-party plug-ins?"
Click Yes to skip loading optional and third-party plug-ins.
If the problem recurs, then an installed optional and/or third-party plug-in is not causing the problem. Close Photoshop and restart Photoshop without holding the Shift key to re-enable all of the optional and third-party plug-ins.
thanks, c.pfaffenbichler and sharon huang.
just what i was looking for.
