Maybe your file is very big? when you work with a big file, the operating system could have to use virtual memory (which means than it uses the hard disk as memory, but the hard disk is about 1 million times slower than memory).

Try to create an image just 1000px x 700 px. Is it still slow?

Something you can do to improve the speed:
   - Increase the RAM memory of your computer
   - Change your HDD by a SSD one (SSD hard disk are 10x faster than traditional HDD).
   - Change your computer (probably is the memory, but CPU is also important)

But don't change your computer without doing the test on the 1000px x 700px first.

Hope it helps.
