Optimizing for performance with Adobe applications

The most common category of question that we are asked about some of our applications is about how to make them work faster. This post collects some useful resources for the applications for which these performance questions are most relevant.


In general, one of the best things to do to ensure that your software is working at top efficiency is to make sure that you install the most recent updates—both for the application and for supporting plug-ins, codecs, and drivers. Very often, fixes in updates are specifically to address performance issues.

You can find information about optimizing for performance (or anything else) for your application using the Adobe Community Help search.

Please don’t post questions in the comments of this post. It is far more likely that your question can be addressed effectively on the appropriate Adobe user-to-user forum.
