Does this program run slow because my processor is 2.16 Intel Core Duo? I love the program but it is very slow on my computer. I definitely have the space.

Are you running it on a Mac or a Windows PC?

The speed of the program will depend on a variety of factors:

- Resolution of the images you are processing.
- Number of filters/effects being applied.
- Screen resolution of your monitor.

You can toggle the 'high quality' button on and off to alter performance in PhotoKey.

However, a dual core should run the program fine - we have similar machines in the office here.

I am running it on a Mac. Does this make a difference?
I will check on the other factors you mentioned.

PhotoKey is not a universal binary so does not run quite as fast as we'd like on the Mac. This is something that was fixed in PhotoKey Batch, which runs at full speed, and which we'll be resolving in future versions of PhotoKey.
