Photoshop Elements 12 runs really slow and is almost unusable.

Photoshop (and Premiere) Elements 12 runs really slow and is almost unusable.
All other high end software works perfectly including 3D rendering software.
27" iMac mid 2011.
16gb of RAM.
Over 100gb free hdd space.
Radeon HD card 2GB.
3.4 GHz Intel Core i7.
I have tested on tiny low quality images as well.
I bought this with the bundled Premiere Elements which is also unusable even with the smallest and lowest quality video file.
iMovie works fine as does other video editing software. I ONLY have an issue with Photoshop and Premiere Elements 12.
Mavericks 10.9.3
Elements 12.1

After the latest update, Firefox is much better. Using it again.

    Try a hard reset by pressing the Home button and Wake / Sleep button at the same time, keep them both pressed until the Apple Logo appears on the screen.
    This does not lose any data on your iPad.

  • My Macbook Pro is running really slow and programs keep crashing

    I have a 15" MacBook Pro (Mid 2010 Model) that is doing my head in, as it runs really slow most of the times as soon as I open more than one program (especially if I use Excel or Word of course). I ran the EtreCheck and the result is below, hopefully this will help some of you guide me in the right direction?
    Most of my memory (over 200GB) is used up by "OTHER", any idea what that could be and how I could easily free up space?
    Thanks a lot

Select the most recent report related to the process in question. The contents of the report will appear on the right. Use copy and paste to post the entire contents—the text, not a screenshot.
    I know the report is long, maybe several hundred lines. Please post all of it anyway.
    If you don't see any reports listed, but you know there was a crash, you may have chosen Diagnostic and Usage Messages from the log list. Choose DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION instead.
    In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.)
    Please don’t post other kinds of diagnostic report—they're very long and rarely helpful.
    When you post the log extract or the crash report, you might see an error message on the web page: "You have included content in your post that is not permitted," or "The message contains invalid characters." That's a bug in the forum software. Please post the text on Pastebin, then post a link here to the page you created.

  • My itunes is running really slow and will not recognise any of the 2 iphones 1 "3g" and 1 "4" or my ipod touch ?

    my itunes is running very very slow the rest of my pc is fine.
    i tunes will not recognise either of my iphones "3gs,4, nor my ipod touch4".
    i have uninstalled all apple software and re installed itunes .
    i have checked my iphone at a retail store and it was found.
    i have the latest version of ie "ie9" and itunes "10.2.2.12".
    any ideas what to do ?

    Hi Grant, Thanks for the response, much appreciated.
    I agree that it should not really run slow however I would really like to upgrade to Lion anyway and thought that doing it via the SSD route would be  good way to do it as the SSD should help speed things up once I sort out the underlying issue at present. I also wanted to try and load lion but still have Snow Leopard available on the original drive for the time being till I knew that eveything was working well using Lion but I'm not sure if this is possible and how to do to this.
    I have just clicked on 'Verify disk' on HD1 in the utility menu and there is a problem there. It is asking for me to start using another disk such as the mac installation disc but I am not sure where I have put this. Seeing as I have upgraded to SL would this now be the new installation disc and if so, do I just put the disc in the machine and restart?
    Thanks for your help

  • Itunes 7.6.2 running really slow and hogging CPU

    Hi, every time I use itunes and skip to the next song it will begin to lag and then the color wheel will show. In the activity monitor itunes will use about 100%+ CPU and another process called Kernel_task will go berserk and use 500%. I have about 20,000 songs (150 GB) but this should not be a problem because I am using a Mac Pro 2x2.8 GHZ quad-core with 2 GB of RAM. This issue has only been recent and if anyone knows a solution that would great. thanks. I am also running coversutra and Last.FM if that makes a difference.

    I'm also having the same problem. 100% CPU usage, and unresponsive. I thought it was the result of a hard drive migration I just did, but seeing that the same problem has come up for others so recently makes me think it's something else.
    Right now I really can't use itunes. Changing songs causes it to hang, as well as any other operation. Was working perfectly yesterday. I really don't get this. I''ve done permission checks, disk checks, uninstalled last.fm...Nothing helps.

  • My macbook pro version 10.8.2 is running really slow, and WILL NOT open Itunes?

  • My MacBook Air just started running really slow

    I have a MacBook Air and Safari started running really slow and I'm not sure why.  I'm not very tech savy, so I'm having a hard time figuring out what's going on.

    Please answer as many of the following questions as you can. You may already have answered some of them. In that case, there's no need to repeat the answers.
    Have you restarted your router and your broadband device (if they're separate) since you first noticed the problem? If not, do that now and see whether there's any change.
    If your browser is Safari, then from the Safari menu bar, select
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Privacy ▹ Remove All Website Data
    and confirm. Any change?
    Select the Advanced tab in the Preferences window and uncheck the box marked
    Stop plug-ins to save power
    Any change?
    Quit and relaunch the browser. Any change?
    Log out and log back in. Any change?
    Enable Private Browsing in the Safari menu. Any change?
    Are any other web browsers installed, and are they the same? What about other Internet applications, such as iTunes and the App Store?
    If other browsers and Internet applications are also affected, follow these instructions and test. Any change?
    If Parental Controls is active for any user, please turn it off and test. Any change?
    If only Safari is affected, launch the Activity Monitor application and enter "web" (without the quotes) in the search box. If a process named "Safari Web Content" is shown in red or is using more than about 5% of a CPU, select it and force it to quit by clicking the X or Quit Process button in the toolbar of the window. There may be more than one such process. Any improvement?
    Again, if only Safari is involved, open the iCloud preference pane and uncheck the box marked Safari, if it's checked. Any change?
    Are there any other devices on the same network that can browse the Web, and are they affected?
    If you can test Safari on another network, is it the same there?
    If you connect to your router with Wi-Fi and you can also connect with Ethernet, do that and turn off Wi-Fi. Any difference?

  • Can someone please help. I have a really old MacBook that is running really slow. I want to wipe everything and reinstall the latest software but don't know how to do this. Also is there a way of keeping Microsoft Office when doing this? Thanks in advance

    Can someone please help. I have a really old MacBook that is running really slow. I want to wipe everything and reinstall the latest software but don't know how to do this. Also is there a way of keeping Microsoft Office when doing this? Thanks in advance

    You do realise that wiping the disk means that everything on the disk is erased. Everything. Photos, music, emails, ...
    So the first piece of advice is to make sure you have a back up of everything.
    You need the OS disk to reintsall the operating system. You will use that disk first to erase the drive, then to reinstall the OS.
    Here's the link for the US.  http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard
    As for MS Office, you will need the original disk that it came on to reinstall it.

    How large is your hard drive and how much hard drive space do you have left?
    It is very difficult to offer troubleshooting suggestions when the "os version" you are using is unknown as each os has their own troubleshooting solutions.

  • I have iMac and need a good photo editing program to use.  Reviews say aperture runs really slow with Lion, any suggestions?

    I need a program where I can remove objects and touch up dead grass, etc.

    Reviews say Aperture runs really slow with Lion, any suggestions?
    To add on to Corky02 answer:
    The recent Aperture release AP 3.3.x is very efficient, both on Lion and Mountain Lion. But you need a decent hardware to support it. The older Macs will have problems with the storage and CPU requirements. For good performance on large raw images plenty of RAM is important, at least 4GB, but 8GB would be much better, and your library should be on a fast disk, preferably on an internal drive. And don't let the system drive get too full.
    Many reports about Aperture being slow are due to putting the Aperture library onto slow disks or acessing  the original image files over the network, insufficient RAM, or corrupted or  ill-designedAperture databases.
    Aperture excels at all kinds of image processing that can be considered image developement - raw processing and color/lighting adjustments, but does not do compositing. If you are shooting raw and want professional image developement I'd recommend to do this in Aperture and not in iPhoto - you will have much more control over this in Aperture (after a steep learning curve). You can also  repair and retouch the image to correct minor blamishes. For graphics compositing and inpainting you can set up an external editor and send your images from Aperture to this external editor - any of the editors Corky recommended would be o.k. for this.
    To see, if you will want the advanced image processing in Aperture or the easy to use, more basic options in iPhoro will be sufficient to you have a look at the Aperture User manual, or the tutorial on the support page: Aperture Support
    But Aperture is a professional apllication, not "plug and play". You should only consider it, if you are willing to spend some time on learning to use it properly and are willing to work your way through the manual.
