These changes are optional. If you have limited memory space on your computer, consider the first two listed. In the Fix/Edit mode…
- Above in the menu Edit >Preferences >General. Look for the “Export Clipboard.” Click on it to UNcheck mark this selection. This will keep the clipboard empty, thus freeing up memory space until you need to use it.
- (Menu) Edit >Preferences >Performance. Memory Usage – set this number to the highest number in the ideal range. Do NOT do this if you are using less than 1 GB of RAM.
- (Menu) Edit >Display & Cursors. Here are some settings for the brush tools and clone stamp. At this point, you may not have a preference how these brushes act. At some point in your journey, you may want a brush that is very precise and doesn’t have a feathered edge. This is a way to set the default to your liking. You can always make changes to the brushes at anytime as there is a drop down menu for brushes, which gives you easy access for making changes.
