My computer was fine with running Photoshop CS2 in Windows XP but when I clean installed Windows 7 it started to lag horribly.
My computer also meets the minimum requirements for Photoshop CS2.
I had more space on Windows 7 compared to XP too since I completely started over.
Nowadays I can't even get a couple brush strokes with out lagging and getting choppy, straight lines. I've tried everything to get it back to normal but it just seems to be a problem with my computer in general.
I can't buy a new computer and PS CS2 ran PERFECTLY before so I still have some hope in it.
Is it compatibility issues? I really want to use Photoshop again (doesn't matter which version).
Are the newer versions like CS5 faster and take up less space?
Thanks in advance. I am still searching for the answer myself at the moment
