UL Procyon Photo Editing Benchmark
Benchmark PC performance with Adobe® applications
UL Procyon benchmarks use real applications to test performance whenever possible. The UL Procyon Photo Editing Benchmark uses Adobe® Lightroom® Classic and Adobe® Photoshop® in a typical photo editing workflow that includes batch processing and image retouching.
The UL Procyon Photo Editing Benchmark starts by importing Digital Negative (DNG) image files into Adobe Lightroom Classic and applying various presets. Some images are cropped, straightened and modified. In the second part of the test, multiple edits and layer effects are applied to a photograph in Adobe Photoshop. The benchmark score is a measure of how quickly the PC performs these tasks.
