I’m looking for some advice. We have an iMac 27 inch (late 2013) with processor 3.2. GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5, Memory 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M 1 GB. We were running OS X 10.10: Yosemite on it for years with no problems. In the last few tears it started to slow down, primarily on my partner’s account side. We figured this was because she stored a LOT of photos on her side (she’s an amateur photographer). Eventually it got so slow, we decided to wipe it completely and upload a new IOS on it. We downloaded Catalina. We also purchased new Adobe suite software (photoshop, illustrator and Acrobat) and we hoped for the best. After using it now for a week, it’s slower than it was even before the wipe and it’s driving us nuts.
My question is, is there anything I can do about this? Or is it time to buy a new Mac?
All advice would be greatly received as I know feck all when it comes to this stuff.
