What effects?

Is it a permanent freeze (You have to force close PSP)? Or just a freeze while it processes the effect? (usually there is a progress bar at the bottom to show it's working). Is this in the Photography workspace or the Complete/Essentials workspaces?

Its a permanent freeze or loop, it tryes to apply the effect but the loop is a constant and won't apply so I have to force close it out

And the other part of my question? Which effects do this? Or is it just any random effect?

Part of me wants to blame your RAM. 4GB on a 64-bit machine is the bare minimum to run, not to run effectively. But my Surface Pro 3 (old as it is) also only has 4GB of RAM. I'm always running at about 90% memory usage. And I don't have this issue with PSP 2022. Nor did I with 2018 back when I was using that. What size images are you working with usually? in pixels?

How many programs / browser tabs do you usually have running at the same time as PSP?

Does turning off auto-save make any difference?
