Here is a performance tip for you. Sometimes Photoshop can slow down a little bit if you are using a lot of Layer Styles on a high resolution file and you are just building up very complex effects using texture overlays and Drop Shadows, and whatnot. So one thing you can do while you are editing if you have just seen Photoshop slowing down a little bit, you don't need to see the effects turned on to be doing these sort of editing at that moment, you can hide globally all the Layer Styles for the entire document. To do that, just right-click or Ctrl- click with a one-button mouse on any of the fx icons that you see in the Layers panel. And choose at the very button, there is a Hide All Effects command. If you turn that on, that temporarily just turns off all those effects for the entire document.
So you can do your retouching or whatever it is that you are trying to accomplish. And then when you are done and you want to get the effects back on for output or save the file or whatever, you can right-click again on any of the fx icons and choose Show All Effects. So a very quick performance tip to get Photoshop just to be a little bit faster when you are using complex Layers Styles.
