    no it's not normal, I have brushes that's like 1000px it's slower but not that slow. maybe your system is just slow or you have heaps of brush options happening like "texture" "dual" and so on... can't really say but no it's not normal.

    Well I remembered reading about how if you add too many custom brushes to a Painter brush library that it could cause a performance hit. So I tried reseting the Photoshop brush library and it worked. So how should I organize my brushes so this doesn't happen anymore.

    didn't know that one, thanks.

    ermm, I usually save my brushes in a "set" so I only have bunch of brushes I really use, most are customs of course, so why not just lose some of the ones you don't use and have a brush set of your own?

    I kind of have the same problem. Things get pretty choppy for me past around 100px. I have a 1.5 ghz cpu, 1 gig of ram, and a geforce 3. I dunno if my computer is too old for PS

    unless your computer is a complete dinosaur
    you shouldnt consider a 100pix brush as large. thats actually a really small brush
    and definitely listen to bumskee
    too many custom brushes WILL slow you down if not crash you (given little ram)also its proven that for some reason music players (especially itunes) slow down photoshop signifigantly
    and the more files you have on your desktop the slower you will operate as well
    in a professional setting you should have the memory usage setting in preferences to 70 percent
    that may help your problem alot

    Hey there, same thing was happening to me in Photoshop cs2, and I have a pretty decent computer, so I asked, and Meatsworthy told me that this is a problem they have with Photoshop CS2, there is an update you can download that fixes this, I belive it is: Version 9.0.1 , I could not find out where to download this again, but.... Adobe offers version 9.0.2 which sais that it fixes everything it fixed in 9.0.1


    You can download Windows update here: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloa...jsp?ftpID=3446

    And Mac Update here:
    http://www.adobe.com/support/downloa...jsp?ftpID=3444

    I updated with 9.0.1 and it fixed my problem, so I am not gonna bother trying the 9.0.2, You might still be abled to search google and find other sites that still allow you to download 9.0.1 ...

    This should hopefully fix your problem.

    Joe.
