Is Krita slow and laggy? | Krita vs Photoshop brush performance comparison


Krita used to be known for being slow and buggy. But that's all in the past. The current brush engine in Krita has even surpassed the performance of Photoshop.

In this video I'm going to compare Krita and Photoshop head to head in terms of brush performance. The reason I made this video is because a few hours before I recorded the video, Krita version 4.2.1 was just released. And in the release note there is one improvement or fix that caught my attention and that is "Fix possible small delays at the beginning of a stroke". This is great news. I mean, Krita was already very performant in the last few releases. And now Krita should be even faster because the developers have managed to squash even the smallest delays in the brush engine. This is just too interesting for me not to test it myself against Photoshop.

If you want to learn computer graphics software such as Photoshop, Krita, Illustrator, Blender, 3ds Max, SketchUp, and so on, from the very basics to the advanced level, you should definitely check out my courses on Udemy, or Skillshare. You can also check out my other courses here.

I hope this tutorial is useful, Wassalaamu'alaikum.
