    Lightroom 5.7.1 hangs when importing from iPhoto

    Simonkm

      Hi everyone,

       

      I downloaded Lightroom 5 after seeing the ability to now import from iPhoto within the application now exists, but I just can't seem to get it to work. I'm on a 2012 Mac running Yosemite.

       

      First of all I updated to Lightroom 5.7, and used the File > Plug-in Extras > Import from iPhoto library, but after checking the iPhoto library, the software just hangs, and I get a spinning beachball and a 0% progress message. I end up having to Force Quite the application, which shows as Not Responding.

       

      I then saw there was a 5.7.1 update, but am having the same problem - nothing seems to happen, and the application shows as not responding. I've tried restarting my iMac, and deleting the Lightroom preferences file, neither of which have made any difference.

       

      Anyone have any ideas please? Any help would be much appreciated!

       

      Thanks!
