While working on your Photoshop, you experience unexpected freeze up or during on its launch, taking a long time or forever.

My first advice is to check this link : How to Fix Adobe Photoshop Freeze

If doesn’t work then this tips will help you to diagnose the issue arise on the Photoshop while working or launching it.

1. Remove any unavailable Devices or Printers in your Devices and Printers (in Windows Operating System). In my experience, this totally clears some of my issues while loading my Photoshop.

By removing offline printers or devices, this will help your Photoshop back to its fast loading pace or even stop its freeze up.

Windows 7: To remove any offline or not working printers, go to Control Panel, Hardware and Sound then go forth  Device and Printers. From there, choose an offline printer (usually it looks like the transparent or opacity is down). Right-click that offline printer then select Remove Device. Click Yes if ask that are you sure to remove this device.

Main reason is that, you are connected on a Local Area Network such as Workgroup, for some reason it’s affecting your Photoshop performance.

2. If you connected on a network while working on your Photoshop file (.PSD), and suddenly crush, this may be due to your network connection issue.

If that’s the case, isolate the issue going on your network.

* Check your Switch/Hub, Router, UTP (cat5e) cable and RJ45 connector. This may be in need of maintenance, such as cleaning to begin to work properly.
On Switch/Hub you may try to put it into another port, changing also UTP cable and RJ45 connector may fix some issues.

* Check your Computer or Server if any conflict arises within hardware or software. This can also trigger some issues to stop Photoshop on working properly. If you are connected on the Server while working your Photoshop file (.PSD), and suddenly experience sluggish or unexpected crush of Photoshop. You should check the following:

* At software, check the firewall settings, any running updates or antivirus scanning your files, you should stop or exclude this from checking it.

* At hardware, check your RJ45 connector it maybe loosen or worn out due to daily usage. Keeping it clean or change it may solve related issue. You can see a light on the LAN or Ethernet Card connected by the RJ45 connector, to see if there is a activity or indication that the connection is ongoing.

* Test your connection between the effected computers or servers. Try to used ping command on Windows launch the command prompt, and then from there type the following:

For example: ping server name or computer name
ping (Private or Internal IP Address)

If there is a successfully communication, it should be like this:

D:\>ping server

Pinging server [] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from bytes=32 time=1ms TTL=128
Reply from bytes=32 time=1ms TTL=128

Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 1ms, Average = 0ms

3. And lastly check both software/hardware requirements in your current system, this might involve on Photoshop slowdown. For example: If you are using CS3 then shift into CS5, it might conflict around the software installations while you have CS3 currently installed in your computer, uninstalled first the CS3 then install CS5.

Hardware can be also then main reason, if your computer requirements are below to the minimum requirements, of the Adobe Photoshop version you currently have, then it’s time for you to upgrade it. Check also you’re HDD or Hard disk for accuracy and reliability when processing your Photoshop files.

I hope this tip might solve any concern you experience and Photoshop freeze or slowdown. 😀
