I have the same exact problem! Lightroom is usually amazing and I get paid for my photography. Since the last update LR has become almost entirely unusable for it is THAT slow. I tried to troubleshoot the other day with the chat function with the support team. I turned off my GPU accelerator and reset lightroom, that seemed to help for about 30 mins. Now its slow again. LR what are you going to do about this? We need a fix.
The teams are working on the newer update of Lightroom, please try the following steps :
- Go to Lightroom > Preferences.
- Click on the General tab
- Uncheck “Show ‘Add Photos’ Screen”Restart Lightroom
- Also please Go to the Preferences > Performance Tab, and uncheck "Use Graphics Processor "
- Restart Lightroom and see if it works.
I'm not sure why, but it worked. Thank you Tanuj for you assistance :-)
You are Welcome, Glad to help.
Hi. I'm having the same problem. Lightroom used to work fine, now slow to the point of exasperation. I tried the 2 unchecks suggested by Tanuj, but it does not seem to have helped. Any ideas what to do? I need to work on some photos, and Lightroom has become basically useless.
