I recently purchased a new laptop and creative cloud had me download the newer version of Lightroom rather than the older one I was using on my old laptop. I am having lagging issues when I am trying to develop photos. It is getting incredibly frustrating. Each time I change anything..highlights...shadows....so slow to show up on the actual image. Is it my computer? Do I have my settings wrong? Or is it the new version of lightroom?
Lightroom version: CC 2015.0.1 [ 1018573 ]
You could try turning off GPU processing.
Edit >> Preferences >> Performance
Lightroom >> Preferences >> Performance (on Mac OSX)
Then disable GPU acceleration.
For Windows you should go to the website of the manufacturer of your graphics processor and check for driver updates. After updating you could try switching GPU acceleration on again, otherwise leave it disabled.
On mac GPU updates happen with OS updates.
I disabled the GPU with no luck. I also looked for an update for my graphics processor, it says i'm up to date. I'm trying to use it now and it's taking at least 30 seconds for me to be able to remove a photo.
