View Full Version : Disabling histogram cache in CS2
In Photoshop 7 thereís an option in <Preferences> to force a fresh histogram calculation every time. I just installed CS2 in WinXP and can't seem to find a similar menu option. I donít want to click on that little exclamation mark thingy over and over again.
Can someone enlighten me?
Yeh the histogram in CS2 can be pretty deceiving; it looks fine until you refresh it, then you realize the image is actually trashed. Problem is, refreshing the histogram with every move will take tons of memory, especially if you're working with large files or many layers (or both); everything you do will take ten times longer as the refresh happens. So I only look at the histogram occasionally. But, to answer your question, I don't know a way to auto-refresh; there is no such choice in any of the histogram menus.
I see what you mean, Chris, given that the histogram is continuously <on> in CS2.
And I suppose the extra step of clicking that exclamation mark is slightly less work that doing <image> <histogram> under PS7 each time.
