Photoshop Usability Problems
Posted on 2006-05-07
I installed photoshop on a new system that should be screamingly fast.... and it's not... I need some help figuring out why photoshop hangs like CRAZY. It's almost unusable at times.
Things I have that should make it super fast...
2 gigs of ram and a nice video card
The application and OS reside on RAID 0 Array
Windows has it's own partition on that array for the paging file
Photoshop has a partition on a separate IDE drive for the scratch disk.
My processor is a dual core 3 Ghz Pentium.
Photoshop is running like it's on a 486... It's terrible... For the most part, photoshop is the only application that does this... I can't figure it out... any ideas?
