Optimizing Photoshop

Photoshop is a powerful program, and as such, requires a tremendous amount of computing power. When working on large documents, a poorly optimized Photoshop translates into long wait times. That's the bad news. The good news is that Photoshop can be configured to run more efficiently. To optimize Photoshop, click the Photoshop menu (Mac) or the Edit menu (Win), and then click Preferences. Of the available preferences, General, Plug Ins & Scratch Disks, and Memory & Image Cache, contain options that help increase the performance of Photoshop.

General Preferences

History States control the number of undos available. History States range from 0 to 1000. Increasing the number of History States, increases Photoshop's use of RAM memory, and can decrease overall performance of the program. If you are experiencing slow performance problems, lowering the number of History States frees up more RAM memory, and allow Photoshop to operate more efficiently.
