    Question photoshop question


    i am having a problem with my photoshop 7 and i am hoping someone might have some insight to something i am missing. i have used this version of 7 for almost a year with no real problems. over the past week it has gotten so slow it is unreal. to crop a photo it used to be about 10 seconds now it takes over 5 min. same size photo i scan everything at 20 meg. i have uninstalled and reinstalled photo shop several times trying to fix this. i still have 6.0 loaded on this computer and it runs fine. thought it was the problem somehow uninstalled it no change. i have done several defrags. and i have over 60% harddrive memory availible i don't know what to do any ideas? thanks mike c

    10 seconds to crop a photo? That's a bit high to begin with. What are your computer specs? Processor / RAM ?

    i scan everything at 20 meg
    why would you scan something to that file size? that alone can slowdown your photoshop functions big time.

    i have over 60% harddrive memory
    try increasing your RAM not your HD free space.

    Not sure about ur prob, sorry. Maybe for the large size of ur photo (20mg)
    U can use marquee tool and cut/copy past instead of using crop,
    Marge layers if u has multiple layers.
