jsiegel Posted March 19, 2016 Share Posted March 19, 2016 (edited) I am a photographer, somewhat of a graphic designer, and mac girl to the core. Current systems are: 2012 iMac 3.4 Ghz Intel Core i7 - 32GB RAM - 3TB SATA HD (I still have 2.48TB free) - Mavericks OS X 10.9.5 2012 15" MacBook Pro 2.6 Ghz Intel Core i7 - 16GB RAM - 1TB SSD (624.52GB free) - Mavericks OS X 10.9.5 I recently upgraded to the Nikon D810 and ever since, my Adobe LR 5, Photoshop CS6, and Bridge are super slow. PS is now crashing and freezing and it's too the point where simple tasks like writing a document up in Word cause the systems to slow tremendously. My MBP is now heating up extensively to the point where the fan runs constantly unless I sleep the machine to cool it down. The iMac is tons better, but still really slow running those intensive programs. I do only keep those three open at a time and close everything else out. I also delete photos from iPhoto and LR constantly and leave everything on externals. I have several Photoshop plug ins, Including Portraiture, the Flaming Pear Flood, Rad Lab, etc. I have a ton of brushes loaded, as well as actions. I don't know if it is my systems or the fact that the images on the D810 are soooo large. I've recently been thinking about getting a Mac Pro, it has the ability to be upgraded even further, but at a huge, hefty price. I've tested both macs using the Apple hardware tests and everything checks out fine. I've reset the SMC and PRAM. Cleaned out the fonts, cleaned off the desktops. Gosh I have no clue what else would help! And apple just says if the machine checks out, it's got to be the Adobe products and they don't have anyone in Support that will help me with them. Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions for me before I fork out a ton of money on that Mac Pro? I feel like my configurations should still be good for many years to come.
