Was there any error message?
Is it just Lightroom that is crashing, or does the entire computer have to be restarted?
How big (in MEGAPIXELS, not megabytes) is this photo?
Thank you for a very quick response; the image is 5.5MB in size and there's no error message from Lightroom, just a standard error message from Windows stating that there was a problem and Windows is attempting to find the cause, which it (obviously) never does.
I re-started Lightroom several times and it always crashed again on import.
Once I had re-started the computer the import worked as it should once again.
Prior to re-starting the computer I did make sure that I had cleared out the Lightroom cache.
So the problem is solved?
I thought it was solved the last time it happened but it's back again
I suspect that it might be that my laptop is getting older now and needs more memory which isn't worth it at the moment.
I would also suspect that I'm putting the computer into hibernation too often rather that just shutting down.
I have the same issue, crashes every time i try and import
