Photoshop Lag.

Lately when I dodge and burn the brush tool does a split second loading symbol after almost every stroke. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue? I have a fairly new and good computer, and it's very annoying for it to do that while I'm trying to do skin.

Re: Photoshop Lag.

Sometimes the cache gets full. Sometimes quitting and restarting PS does the trick, or if other apps have been hogging the RAM I find rebooting the computer is best.

This may apply more to me than others because I don't shut down my machine down all that often.

Re: Photoshop Lag.

Well maybe I should clrify, it's not really lag. It's the busy symbol after I click in photoshop. It could be any click, even ones where I have the move tool selected and don't do anything but click in empty space, the busy symbol still pops up for just a tiny amount of time. It's not a huge deal, but it's very annoying for the busy symbol to keep poping up when I'm making tons of strokes while dodging and burning.

Re: Photoshop Lag.

Make sure you have more than enough clear space in your cache, scratch and startup disk. Add RAM.

Re: Photoshop Lag.

You may try purging the history, clipboard, and/or undo (Edit>Purge) to clear up some of the memory, it is a less drastic measure than quitting and restarting PS.

Re: Photoshop Lag.

Please give us at least the OS and very basic hardware specs you are on.
I've come upon this issue using CS3 on Vista and as it happened right after opening PS I guess it's not necessarily restricted to be a result of filled up RAM or smth.
