    New computer for Adobe use but seems slow

    Attroll Level 1

      I just received my new system and tried a file with Photoshop to see if there was much of a difference.

      I have to admit I am not to impressed yet.

      I have a photoshop .psd file that is 262,790 kb.

      I am saving it as a .png and it is saving as 15,136 kb.

      It takes 2 minutes to save the file as a .png.

      Is that normal?

       

      Here is what I have for a system:

       

      Processor = i7 6700

      32 GB RAM

      525 GB Solid State Drive

      GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Graphics Card 1.29 GHz Core 1.39 GHz Boost Clock – 4 GB GDDR5

          if you have wx as the system then yes it is pretty normal however you can fine tune a lot

          the big time waister with Adobe products on Windows systems is their networking;

          • file sync, open the Adobe cc app and look to see if they are syncing files in the background... if so you can stop it temp or turn it off as required

          • if you turn the Adobe CC off or stop it from starting at system start (and on Windows systems you should) then be sure to restart the app before starting any Adobe software or the result tends to be two copies of the app running in the background and thats a big cause of slow down

          • when things are working well you should see your account icon at the start page for Photoshop

            I am not using CC right now. I am still on CS3. I don't know if I want to spend almost $400 a year to upgrade to CC yet.
