fair enough, that workaround should work for 32 bit too - we only had the problem on 64 bit machines, the XP 32 never seemed to have it

can someone that has this issue on 32 bit try and and verify the work around works?

it's been a know workaround almost since cs3 was released... we've offered it to people with the problem many times. search this forum for "local printer".

I found a fix from Warren Pearson to speed up Photoshop CS3 when using Vista and a network printer. If your default printer is a network printer, photoshop will take forever to open a file. A work around this is to fool photoshop by adding a local printer with network capabilities. Here's how: 1) Start the Add printer wizard 2) choose to add a Local printer. 3) Select "Create a New Port" and use the drop down menu to choose "Standard TCP/IP Port". 4) Next type in the IP address of your networked printer--you can find this in your printer's set up under wireless network information settings. 5) Then choose the brand of printer in the left box and the model in the right box to install a driver. Whala! You installed a network printer that is recognized as a local printer by Vista and Photoshop. Photoshop CS3 will now open files instantly. Thanks to Warren Pearson for this fix.

I did not discover this fix for months and was so frustrated with the lag time of opening jpeg files, I almost stopped using Photoshop altogether.

Good luck!

Yeah, Adobe can't do much to speed up bad printer drivers (and if they take that long, they're bad).

I had the exact same problem, but it wasn't just a network printer. I couldn't have a Konica Minolta Bizhub set as the default. Any other printer on the network could be set as the default. Once I set it back to the Bishub, Photoshop would close down after opening a second photo.

DId you report that to Konica Minolta so they could fix their driver?
