The performance of Photoshop is a well discussed topic. There are many techniques and settings that can be tweaked to ensure you are running smooth as silk (silk is super smooth!)

However, and this is a big however, many of the suggestions and performance enhancements reduce the functionality within Photoshop. We are not saying that you shouldn’t tweak the settings to improve performance, we just want to make you aware that some of the settings within this course will limit functionality (we will make these functionalities crystal clear).

The best and long term solution to any photoshop performance issue is to upgrade your pc or pc components (easier said than done). We can use another car analogy here. Imagine buying a Ferrari (salivates) and then putting a limiter on the top speed, handling and acceleration; it doesn’t really make sense.

Now that we have that cleared up, let’s jump into the course and see how we can squeeze some extra performance from Photoshop. There is something for everyone!
