If you haven't optimized your catalog under 4.1, do so

This helped IMMENSELY in getting the grid up when I change sources.

    "Always" (meaning normally) doing in the course of backup seems like a good plan to me.

    Yes, that is also my working mode.

    Fortunately it is defaulted for the backup procedure, so many people hopefuly will leave the tick where it is.

    Optimizing fixed a few people's abnormal performance problems in Lr3's earlier days too.

    Since I rarely - if ever - backup the catalog, I hadn't optimized in a long time.  I had never found that it improved anything much, until now.

    Is that because your catalog is backed up some other way, or because you like living dangerously

    Optimizing and backuping your catalog


    Its only really necessary if you want to keep your images and your edits, work professionally or shoot RAW, otherwise, its just an effort when you want to turn off your computer after editing a few images.

    I don't use any LR features that aren't stored in the XMP data.

     

    What about books, web galleries and such?

    I personally don't use the built-in backup feature. Therefore, I too optimize the catalog sporadically.

     

    I think the real reason of this post, was to point our attention that starting with 4.1, not only the main catalog is being optimized, but laso the two smaller databases that are a part of the preview cache.
