The Great Photoshop Race

Reboot your computer. Then start Photoshop and time how long it takes to fully open and report back here. Include relevant information such as OS, CPU speed, memory, versions, etc.

For me it was 20 seconds flat (was faster before I started adding plugins). PS7 on W2K, 256 meg of ram, 1.4ghz P4.

1ghz Athlon, 512 ram, Win ME, PS 6..no plug-ins

- 17 seconds

Strangely, I closed PS, waited a minute and opened again...this time it took exactly 6 seconds....every time after that has only taken 6-8 seconds. I guess some stuff gets loaded into memory but not unloaded?

10 seconds...

Photoshop 6.0 on dual Athlon MP 1900+'s with 512 PC2100 registered RAM, running Windows XP. I have a lot of fonts (I'm using Adobe Type Manager, so they don't clog my system-- but Photoshop still needs to read them all) which held me back a couple of seconds. (: One more stick of RAM in this machine and it's going to be perfect... I love it!
