How do I enable Photoshop to use the graphics processor?
Choose Edit > Preferences > Performance (Windows) or Photoshop > Preferences > Performance (macOS).
In the Performance panel, make sure that Use Graphics Processor is selected in the Graphics Processor Settings section.
Click Advanced Settings and specify the following options:
- Basic:Uses the least amount of graphics card memory or VRAM and enables basic graphics processor features
- Normal:Uses more graphics card memory or VRAM and enables graphics processor-based color matching, tone mapping, and checkerboard blending
- Advanced:Provides the benefits of Normal mode and newer graphics processor features that can result in improved performance
Use Graphics Processor to Accelerate Computation:Enable to improve the interactivity of Warp and Puppet Warp previews
Use OpenCL: Enable to accelerate the new Blur Gallery filters, Smart Sharpen, Select Focus Area, or Image Size with Preserve Details selected (Note: OpenCL is available only on newer graphics cards that support OpenCL v1.1 or later.)
Anti-alias Guides and Paths:Allows the graphics processor to smooth the edges of drawn guides and paths
30-bit Display:Allows Photoshop to display 30 bit data directly on monitors with 30 bit support
Use native operating system GPU acceleration: Enables Photoshop to use macOS Metal and Windows DirectX 12
Does Photoshop take advantage of more than one graphics processor or graphics card?
Photoshop does not take advantage of multiple graphics cards. Conflicting drivers may also cause crashes or other problems.
- If you have a system with multiple graphics cards, see Configuring computers with multiple graphics cards.
- If you have multiple monitors, a best practice is to connect them to the same graphics card prior to starting Photoshop.
Can I use Photoshop's graphics processor features on a virtual machine?
Running Photoshop under virtual machines, or VMs, is not tested extensively nor officially supported because of known issues with features that rely on the graphics processor in VM environments.
