Adobe Photoshop 22.3 freezing while using Zoom tool on macOS? Fix in the works

Adobe Photoshop first came out in February 1990 and it is now available on platforms like Windows, iPadOS, and macOS.

The Adobe Photoshop version 22.3 came out pretty recently but macOS users have been facing a freezing issue.

As per recent reports, Adobe Photoshop 22.3 is freezing on macOS when the Zoom tool is being used.

It seems that several users are facing this issue and it came to light only after the latest Photoshop update.

Also, it is unclear whether the issue is only affecting Adobe Photoshop for macOS or other platform versions are also affected.


Nevertheless, affected users might not have to wait as Adobe might soon release a fix for the freezing issue.

This is simply due to the fact that an Adobe Employee has said that the product team is aware of the issue and is working on a fix.

Moreover, those who are unable to use Adobe Photoshop can use a previous version for the time being.


Since it is unclear how long it will take to fix the issue, the workaround given by the Adobe Employee appears to be the only way to bypass the problem.

Adobe Photoshop has a pretty large customer base but this issue seems to be causing a lot of inconvenience to users.

However, the fact that the issue has already been acknowledged and is being taken care of shows Adobe’s commitment to deliver the best possible user experience.


Hopefully, Adobe releases a fix for the freezing issue soon as it is literally preventing users from working on the graphics editor.

That said, we will keep tracking this for further development and will provide more details once new information becomes available.
