How to use PugetBench for Photoshop

Published on

Puget Systems offers a number of different benchmarks to test your PC using automated real-world tasks in the Adobe Creative Cloud. Some of them (like the one for Premiere Pro) are a bit complicated and can take a while to get started. But one of them – PugetBench for Photoshop – is very simple.

PugetBench for Photoshop measures how fast your computer can perform various tasks, including mask refinement and gradients, as well as filtering tasks such as lens correction and noise reduction. Unlike some of Puget’s other benchmarks, the Photoshop benchmark only requires one quick plugin to set up.

Note: This benchmark is not yet supported for the M1 native version of Photoshop.

  • In the Creative Cloud Desktop app, go to Stock and Marketplace > Plugins
  • Search PugetBench for Photoshop and click to install† Make sure to close Photoshop before installing the plugin.
  • After the plugin is installed, open Photoshop.
  • Go to Window > Extensions > PugetBench for Photoshop† Enter your license key (if you have one) in the window that appears and configure any other desired settings.
  • Click Run benchmark

PugetBench will take over from here. Be careful not to move the mouse while it is rotating.

Once the benchmark is complete, your results will appear in the PugetBench window. They are also uploaded to the public PugetBench database (unless you have a paid version). This page allows you to compare your results with those of other PCs. Each system has an overall score and specific scores for GPU and filter tasks.
