Chapter 3. Customizing the Way You Work > Selecting Plug-Ins & Scratch Disks

Selecting Plug-Ins & Scratch Disks

The Plug-Ins & Scratch Disks preferences are designed to help you get the best performance out of your computer, by letting you choose more than one hard drive for scratch operations. Photoshop runs faster when you divide the Scratch Disk workload. Scratch operations are performed on your hard drive, and take place when Photoshop is using one of its many filters and adjustments. By assigning additional hard drives to the task, you speed up Photoshop's overall performance. Photoshop gives you the ability to organize your plug-ins by saving them in one or more folders. These additional folders are typically used to hold additional third-party plug-ins. When selected, plug-ins contained within the folder will be available from Photoshop's Filters menu.
