Which is more processer heavy: Photoshop CC, Figma or Sketch?

hi all!

Newbie here. This community looks full of really knowledgeable people. So I'm curious to hear what everyone thinks about this.

I really want to ease up the usage on my Macbook pro and assume Photoshop CC is the heaviest but then have heard that Sketch is also quite CPU intensive and crashes a lot too. Now I'm looking at Figma too - assuming it might be less heavy since it's web-based...?

But would love to hear to hear thoughts of anyone who has tried all 3!

:slightly_smiling_face: Thanks in advance.

Well, with a Mackbook pro you should have no trouble running any tools for user interface design, focus more on the features that are most important to you. Adobe XD: integration with Creative Cloud, the best if you currently pay for it. Figma: cloud based with a high focus on collaboration and cross platform. Sketch: the most compatible with third-party services. I use Figma and I have an old Dell from 2014 with i7 3th generation, and it works great.
