    Why is Photoshop suddenly slow when saving .bmp images?

    tollfree1800

      I am using Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit Version: 6.1 Service Pack 1 and have Adobe Photoshop Version: 13.0.1 (13.0.1.3 20131024.r.342013/10/24:21:00:00) x64

       

      Within the last few weeks I have noticed a considerable slow down when I am saving .bmp images.  .  It just took 33 seconds to save a 729x922
      pixel 24bit bitmap that I had cropped.  It has never taken this long to save images in the past.  As far as I know nothing has changed within the computer.  I have checked for updates to Photoshop and it shows I have the latest updates installed.

       

      Does anyone have a suggestion as to why it is suddenly taking so long to save?  And how I can fix it?
