- 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.
ok, when I turned off the "use graphics process" option in preferences it stops freezing, but is not as fast as yesterday when it was turned on. Why would it work with the graphics processor on one day, but not the next?
p.s.: thanks Tanuj. I'd like to be able to use the 2gb memory on the graphics card, since that is the main reason I got the new computer. Is there any sort of work-around or other fix that allows it to be used?
