Getting rid of the unprofessional Add Photos screen is a good advice. Unselecting NVidia processor is not an option, it was stable since Lightroom ver 2 and K4000 is an Adobe approved processor. All other applications (Photoshop, Premiere and so) on do not crash. Ideas?
You really ought to try disabling the graphics processor at least for a few minutes. See if that makes a difference in the stability of Lightroom. If it doesn't then you can always enable it again. GPU acceleration seems to have problems generally that I believe Adobe is still working on.
I will try. Still, as Photoshop is stable - and I would assume Adobe uses common API for graphics drivers across applications - Lightroom is the problem, hopefully resolved soon.
GPU acceleration in Photoshop is buggy too. Just check the Photoshop forums. Many bugs with color management, blocked shadows and such. It's just more mature than Lightroom's. In Lightroom, you really only get benefits from the GPU acceleration if you only do basic edits, are on a very high resolution screen (i.e. retina or 4K screens) and have an extraordinary GPU compared to your processor. Turning off GPU acceleration generally makes the program more stable but if this doesn't help, you probably should revert Lightroom to 2015/6.1.1. Instructions: http://www.lightroomqueen.com/how-do-i-roll-back-to-lightroom-2015-1-1-or-lightroom-6-1-1/ This has stopped the hangs and crashes for me. Adobe has also told us they will revert the import screen to the older version in an upcoming update: Lightroom 6.2 Import Update
Thank you! I guess this is what I will do.
