I was facing a slow photoshop cc2015 from the day I installed it (sorry, don't remember the exact version number but in which a woman appears with blue fluid smoke on the startup screen with 25 years of photoshop written).
I updated today (to the version 2015.1.2 - 64 bit) to see whether if it helps, but the situation is still the same. My photoshop cs5 (64 bit) stil works faster. I am also running all updated graphics drivers. My windows 8.1 (x64) is also updated.
I am using i5 processor - 3230 CPU @ 2.60 GHz
, 8GB RAM, Radeon HD 8570 2GB graphics.
I also did the following settings. I read them somewhere on the web.
Preferences>Plugins>Enable Generator = OFF
Preferences>Plugins>Allow Extensions to Connect to the Internet = OFF
Preferences>Plugins>Load Extensions Panels = OFF
Preferences->Technology Previews>Enable Design Space Preview = OFF
My hosts file is 4.75 KB in size.
But still the situation of slow photoshop cc 2015 remains the same. What should I do?
