By the focus slider do you mean clarity slider.
And does it happens with every other slider as well.
Hi, this happens with every slider, as well as with as with the crop tool. I shouldn't have written "focus slider", I just meant to write "slider". It happens with all adjustments during the adjustment.
I am not seeing this. During and after each slider adjustment, my image is in focus. Lr CC 2015.2.1
May i know where do you have your catalog saved.
Please close down the Lightroom, so to the location where the catalog is saved.
There will be a folder by the name of for example "Lightroom Catalog Previews.lrdata"
Please move this folder to the desktop and then restart the Lightroom.
Check if you get the say issue
My catalog is located in a subfolder of the Pictures folder on my Mac. I moved the folder to my desktop and the behavior is the same.
Thanks for working with me on this.
Make sure both side panels in the Develop module are open and as large as possible by dragging the inner edge toward the center of the screen. Also try dragging the filmstrip up to enlarge the filmstrip thumbnails. This reduces the size of the preview image and should also reduce the blurring you are seeing. You may still see a very slight amount of blurring, but it shouldn't impair the ability to adjust the various sliders.
Try Resetting your preferences
To reset your preferences, do the following:
- Quit Lightroom.
- Navigate to the preferences file:
- Mac OS: /Users/[user name]/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.Lightroom5.plist
- Windows 7, 8: C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Preferences\Lightroom 5 Preferences.agprefs
- Drag the preferences file to the Recycle Bin (Windows) or Trash (Mac OS).
Important (Mac OS): The user Library file is hidden by default on Mac OS X 10.7 and later. For temporary access to the user Library file, press Option and choose Go > Library in the Finder.
Important (Windows): The AppData folder is hidden by default. To view it, choose Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Folder Options. In the Advanced area of the View tab, make sure that Show Hidden Files and Folders is selected. Then, click OK.
I just did this, plus I deleted *.plist files from earlier versions of Lightroom.
Unfortunately, the behavior is the same: blurring whenever I slide any of the develop sliders.
What else can you think of? Thanks,
Moving the focus sliders in the Develop module causes the image to blur for the entire time I am making the adjustment, so I can't see the image clearly during the adjustment, only afterwards. This problem occurs on my new Mac; it didn't happen with my older Mac, which was identical to this one except, on the new one, I have more RAM (16 gig vs 8 gig). I'm running LR 5.7.
What monitor model and/or resolution are you using? If it's one of the new Apple 5K displays then this could be the cause. I do see a "slight" blurring of the image when adjusting the Basic panel controls on my Windows mid-range system using a 2560 x 1440 monitor, but it's not enough to cause any issue in making those adjustments. Where the image needs to remain sharp is when adjusting the controls in the Detail panel. Do you have the same blurring when adjusting those controls at 1:1 Zoom view?
Trshaner: Thanks for your ideas. Increasing the size of the size panels and film strip didn't help. However, I tried changing the resolution from 2560 x 1440 to 2048 x 1152, and the problem has vanished. At 2560 x 1440 I get considerable blurring, it's really unworkable. So I'll stick with the lower resolution, it's not a huge sacrifice.
Thanks again, and thanks to deepakgahlot for trying to help.
You may want to consider upgrading to LR6 or CC 2015, which has the option for GPU acceleration. Some users see a benefit and for others like myself it doesn't help much. It all depends on the type of graphics adapter that is in your system.
You can download LR CC free trial and see if it helps with the issue. Your LR5 installation will not be affected since both version can be installed at the same time.
If it does help you can buy a LR6 license and then convert the LRCC trial installation to LR6 (or stay with the CC plan $9.95/month):
