Adobe Photoshop greatly benefits from performance tuning. Through careful hardware configuration and preference settings, you can make Photoshop run faster and more efficiently—and a Photoshop system that runs efficiently is one that doesn't interrupt your creative process.

In this installment of Photoshop Insider Training, Photoshop senior product manager Bryan O'Neil Hughes steps through the process of optimizing Photoshop's performance. The course begins with hardware configuration, from processor and memory recommendations to hard drive and solid-state drive (SSD) advice. Next, learn about the Photoshop preferences that deliver the best balance of performance and flexibility. Finally, discover the best way to move and save files and how other applications and even the health of your disk drive impact Photoshop's processes.

Topics include:
  • Optimizing a GPU and processor
  • Monitoring memory usage
  • Keeping an eye on the efficiency indicator
  • Reducing image resolution
  • Turning off presets and thumbnails
  • Exporting without the clipboard
  • Closing unnecessary applications
  • Repairing your drive
