SLOW DOWN..Why is my Photoshop CS Super Slow in PANTHER? - Adobe Photoshop Mac CS, CS2 & CS3

G5 DUAL 2GHZ .. 1 GB RAM .. PHOTOSHOP CS .. PANTHER/JAGUAR .................................................. ......... I've had my DUAL G5 since late November and as soon as Panther and CS became available i obtained both and did a clean install. I IMMEDIATELY noticed a noticeable slow down in performance from my JAGUAR.PHOTOSHOP 7 configuration. I ran diagnostics, and ended up wiping my system clean, and re-installing Jaguar, on which CS runs better than in PANTHER... I've scoured the ADOBE site and have not found any optimizing updates, for the dual processor configuration. WHAT SHOULD I DO. I've minimized my font library ...

    Default SLOW DOWN..Why is my Photoshop CS Super Slow in PANTHER?

    .................................................. .........

    I've had my DUAL G5 since late November and as soon as Panther and CS became available i obtained both and did a clean install. I IMMEDIATELY noticed a noticeable slow down in performance from my JAGUAR.PHOTOSHOP 7 configuration.

    I ran diagnostics, and ended up wiping my system clean, and re-installing Jaguar, on which CS runs better than in PANTHER...

    I've scoured the ADOBE site and have not found any optimizing updates, for the dual processor configuration. WHAT SHOULD I DO.

    I've minimized my font library and have yet to install any third party software or filters. I noticed that simply opening a 100MB file would
    take longer than when done on my 1.3ghz PC set up....................
    All in All i am not impressed with the G5 performance, i know i must
    be doing something wrong.....

    PLEASE PLEASE
    answer with any favorable parameters and set up tips.
    what should i do, and where else might i look for answers.

    THANK YOU IN ADVANCE....

    send info to [email]aerosynhotmail.com[/email] if possible

    PEACE be WITH YOU

    Don't allocate more than 70-75% Ram to PS.

    PS is looking for money in the images you are opening of course its going to be slower.

    Trash your Photoshop preferences... and your finder preferences... then delete your cache files using something like Cache Out X. Reboot, run MacJanitor and then Permissions.

    This might be overkill but it can't hurt. It worked for me when I first installed PSCS and had problems with it being slow.
