Teaching Photoshop to Purge (sorry can’t think of a good dieting teen joke) – Performance Tip

Posted on: September 23, 2009

Photoshop can be a like a weight lifting freak on Asterix potion… this program can crunch amazingly big files it can bench presses 600mb files without popping a blood vessel…

But sometimes when you swap / close / copy / paste / create new files etc it forgets to clean up all the old junk laying around and can get a bit slow. Thats where the Purge menu rocks… When you feel photoshop getting slow and cranky (especially if you need to alternate between photoshop and say illustrator or indesign etc)… maybe you have just copy pasted a huge file?… Go click the Edit menu with your meaty digits and select Purge. You can choose between clearing just the stuff in the clipboard (your copy / cut memory), histories, undos or completely erase all junk (including undos BTW)… This is great at keeping your system stable after a few hours of work… Just remember that it will remove your undos on your file so far created (no really focus on this…don’t blame me!)
