    I quite often use multiple brushes in LR, along with filters. Definatley slows it down but it's not unuseable for me, though it does delay the application. Sorry I couldn't be of more help but it sounds like backing up the catalogue then doing a fresh install may help

    Where it becomes a problem is when you have a large number of images. The adjustments are cumulative in slowing down things. It will eventually get to the point that it's slow as molasses or it will lock up.

    I had 8 pictures open in PS2018 and it slowed my laptop down to a crawl. Were files out of my D3300 so they were not huge. I ended up shutting down and restarting. I did have a couple other things going including a Chrome window. I chalked it up to Chrome but wondering if they made some similar changes in PS and LR?

    PS is not as bad as LR, in fact I read a tech bulletin where Adobe actually recommended doing the heavy editing in PS.

    Scroll up and read my earlier comments on settings for PS it will help a lot

    Also Adobe recommends converting raw files to TIFF, as there are file size limitations in PS.
