Adobe Photoshop may be one powerful beast of an app, but that does mean that it can really slow down your computer. Straight from a site called, fittingly, MakePhotoshopFaster.com is this incredibly handy tip for making your installation run noticeably faster.

  1. Go to Preferences > Performance and set Cache Levels to ’1′.
  2. Then go to Preferences > File Handling and select ‘Never Save’ in the ‘Image Previews’ section.

This is all down to the app, in its default state, building previews of things like magnified versions of images when you open a new file. The result of stopping the process occurring? A faster Photoshop.
