I have windows 64bit pc with 4GB ram and Intel Pentium 3.00GHz processor.

Now when I worked with lots of groups in PSD and when I move or transform a group, Photoshop slows down.These operations are slower.

I am worked with a lot of screens of Application UI where I just have to move similar components from one to another.

What are the tricks for working efficiently with large groups so that Photoshop quickly works and doesn't slow down?

  • 4GB of RAM is very low by today's standards. More RAM would certainly not hurt.
