Thought I would share a few thing on how to get a little more speed into Adobe PhotoShop CS4. I will list a few points you need to have look at and in the end share to links to where you can find detailed information.

Here are the things you need to have a look at:

  • Scratch disks
  • Adjust the cache levels
  • Image window management ( on the mac )
  • GPU use
  • Minimizing palette preview thumbnails
  • Reduce the number of History states
  • Reduce patterns and brush tips
  • Allocating more memory to Photoshop

These are the point that I have found most usefull. Feel free to look into some of the other points on the list.
