Photoshop CC


I am beginning to familiarise myself with Photoshop CC on the Mac and I am getting the impression that it runs slower than CS6 did on Windows 7. As both the software and the OS are new to me I am wondering whether I am just imagining this or whether it is fact. Perhaps there are some settings I ought to make and welcome any pointers in this direction.

Just out of interest do you process your images at 8 bit or 16 bit settings.

Re: Photoshop CC


Thank you, Simon, that was very helpful. One last question, when you have finished using PS do you just click the red button or do you select Quit?

Make sure you have the working color space set to ProPhoto or Adobe RGB 1998 under Edit > Color Settings

Re: Photoshop CC


always open a copy- otherwise eventually you risk saving over the original best (edited) version
e.g suppose you have got it all just how you like and saved as a TIFF or psd file, then you decide you'd like to print or save to the web etc [sign in to see URL] you do a load of other things and then forget that it originated with a file you took ages on and you save ....but you just saved over the best version -

so always work on a duplicate emoticon

ask Ian though he has a more sensible workflow than mine which tends to be a bit haphazard (understatement) - so although I know these things I am often the worst offender

Re: Photoshop CC


Wise words, Simon, it only needs one press of the mouse and much may be lost.

I have just restarted PS and then loaded a file. In both cases speed was very good so it seems that the tweaks I made yesterday solved the problem. Thank you, Simon and Ian.
