adobe photoshop

to all adobe photoshop users: have you noticed that photoshop uses more resources lately than usual? i've noticed mine do so. even if it is just opened with no files open, here is my task manager snip. coreldraw and photoshop is just running with no files opened while firefox has 3 tabs. notice the resource usage of photoshop. and also, when i close it, it gives me an error.

snips are attached.

Hi jaypels,

The error may have been from a faulty installation or if you closed it by ending the task. Adobe Photoshop is always going to use a lot of resources because of the sheer velocity it packs; there's nothing you can ethically do about it. If you're experiencing prolonged problems such as slowness or lag, then there's system optimization, but I don't think that's necessary.

Is there anything you'd like to ask about this problem?

Thanks,
Harvey Meale

its just because it did not behave the same way before atleast 2 months ago. when i close adobe photoshop, it closes the normal way - no error messages after. i just noticed it lately. and also the resource usage. it is not that way before.. sometimes when i have a lot to do at corel, my laptop sometimes lags and i need to close photoshop just to have the extra resource. not that im complaining but it is sometimes a hassle to close photoshop to gain some resource and reopen it again at later when i need to export my jpeg files from corel.

Hi jaypels,

Well, I'm not sure why Adobe Photoshop would be more resourceful now, but it's possible that if you've introduced any fonts or brushes or plugins that they could be weighing it down.

oh! i forgot i installed atleast 300 brushes a month ago.. i did not exactly think it would be that big of a resource since all of them were just kilobytes . thank you!

Hi jaypels,

You'd be surprised. I put a few hundred fonts on my copy of Photoshop and the thing can barely run now. Glad I could help.

Thanks,
