    How to get crop tool to work faster (is sluggish)

    radeldudel Community Member

      I'm cropping a few thousand pictures, and the crop tool is just sluggish.


      Changing the crop or moving the picture behind the crop is jumpy, sometimes it needs seconds to change the display, which makes cropping pain to work.


      Even after the picture is loaded and the lightroom rested some time, cropping is sluggish, which should not be, since the picture is fully in the memory and moving it around should be easy for the computer.


      So how can I get the crop tool to move faster?


      I'm using a Win7 Core i7-2600 with 16GB Ram, LR catalogue on Intel SSD, images on a fast SeaGate HDD, AMD Radeon HD 6800 grafics adapter, 30" (2560x1600) display. The files are NEF from a Nikon D800E, but the files from my D700 are slow, too.


      I already worked through this list which helped a little, but not too much.


      I'd appreciate any tips!
