    Newest Photoshop/Lightroom so incredibly slow on OSX Mavericks

    ewduffy Level 1

      I am running an iMac, late 2009 2.8 Intel Core i7 with 4GB memory and have not done any hardware upgrades.

      I updated to Mavericks to allow me to use the newest version of Photoshop and Lightroom. This has slowed my computer down so incredibly much and I am at a loss what to do. Is adding memory recommended? Is there a Canadian company that would be recommended for that?

      I understand that the computer is getting older, but I am not in a place to purchase new right now. I currently have 500 GB of 1000GB free on my hard drive.

      Is there a recommended version of photoshop that I can purchase that works best with OSX Snow Leopard?

      Any wisdom here would be really appreciated.

      Thanks
