Question by CinnaBun: How do you block Photoshop from automatically loading custom brushes? (Slow loading time).?
Every time I try to load Photoshop CS3 (I’m on a Mac), it takes several minutes or more to get past the ‘loading brushes’ stage. I was wondering if there was a way to stop Photoshop from loading ALL of my brushes every single time it opens. I was thinking of deleting all of my brushes from the presets and then loading the ones I need manually, but I don’t know where the original files are, if they’re even still on my computer.
I was also wondering if there’s a program or something that lets you manage Photoshop brushes better (previews, loading them…etc) both in and out of Photoshop?
Thanks in advance! 😀

♦ Open the Brushes list
♦ Click the sideways triangle and choose Preset Manager
♦ Select the brushes (hold CTRL for multiple) that you don’t want to load
♦ Click the Delete Button
♦ Click the Done Button
The next time you open Photoshop, the deleted brushes won’t load.
Question by Gaylene R: Why is my Photoshop CS4 Running so slow, When I used to run really fast?
I used to use photoshop alot and it run fine fast as anything and now when I try to go on it, it runs really slow and takes ages to load one thing! Please Help!

In General Photoshop is a very memory consuming program requiring a lot of memory to run compared to most other programs. Since it was running fine at first I presume you need to clean your PC. maybe try running a defrag and removing unnecessary files.

Question by Oily skyes: Play back in Premiere pro CS4 is really slow and hard to edit , how come?
I try to edit in Premiere Pro CS4 but i can’t because the play back is really slow. I have a Macbook Pro core duo with 8 GBs of ram. I watch videos on youtube of people working with this program and they don’t have no delay at all. I have lowered the quality of my footage but that don’t help at all. Some one said its because i use the original file of the camera? what the proper way of doing it?
Answer by John Thom
Premiere uses the Hard Drive as virtual memory to do it’s work what it’s looking for is a contiguous space if you could use an external HD connected to your laptop as the “Scratch Disk” this might be your problem.
Without knowing your full computer specs, the input settings and your out source I can’t give you a definitive answer. Yet using Premiere as much as I have that was our biggest one.
Also most of the Editors I know like using FCP on laptops as it can get away with the Scratch Disk problem.
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU 2.20 GHz

i got this info from the properties from “my computer”
it seems like i have a decent enough computer to run a program like photoshop but when i brush, it’s still very laggy.
i regularly scan for viruses, i uninstalled all unused programs, i also cleaned the registry. please help!! i really need photoshop to run smoothly!!
also it says i have 200 GB free of 456, just more info.
i never really use any other applications while i try to run ps. probably only my antivirus program
When i brush on photoshop cs2 it always lags.
I have a laptop, 4gb RAM with plenty of free space and Photoshop CS4 installed. It’s always ran smoothly until today. I have made no changes, however, PS started running very slow when brushing, even when I have no other programs open, and when I’m working on a small file.
On Performance settings, I allow Photoshop to use 80% of my RAM and as I said I have no other programs open. So what could be causing this?
Yesterday i was editing a photo and it was fine, but when i went to go edit another all of a sudden it is really slow, and when i tried again now it still is slow.when i use a brush it takes like a minute for it to figure itself out and i see all the brush strokes i do in slow motion. what can i do to speed things up? please explain in detail as i’m not computer savvy.
