this is Lightroom 6, on Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.1
This is a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015), with a processor 3.1 GHz Intel Core i7 and 16 GB 1867 MHz DDR3 RAM.
I must also say that LR is in full screen mode and I cannot have access to the menu, probably because LR is too busy with something else
Yes, catalog-wide face detection is turned off.
Any other thoughts?
Try to create a new catalog and then check.
It might be the contents of that catalog.
Lets give that a try.
If you are on 2015.2.x, you can try this:
If you are experiencing crashing or slowdowns, please try the following:
- Go to Lightroom > Preferences.
- Click on the General tab
- Uncheck “Show ‘Add Photos’ Screen”
- Restart Lightroom
You also may want to turn off GPU acceleration in the LR preferences.
However, I suggest to roll back to 2015.1.1: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/roll-back-to-prior-update.html
Hi @F. McLion,
I am on LR 6.2.1, which I suppose is the same as 2015.2.x
I have unchecked the "Show add photos screen" but no change. (btw, what does this feature do exactly?)
Why are you suggesting to roll back to 6.1.1? Are there known issues with 6.2.1?
Thanks for your help
Same thing with an empty catalog. It starts at a lower RAM usage, but the CPU is still in the 90% and RAM usage keeps growing steadily.
Read the last few entries in the Lightroom blog regarding the issues: http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/
LR 6.x is the stand-alone version whereas LR CC 2015.x is the cloud subscription version.
Did you also try to deactivate the GPU acceleration: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Help | Lightroom Graphics Processor Acceleration (GPU) Troubleshooting & FAQ
Thanks a lot F.
What worked for me is actually to roll back on 6.1.1.
Turning off GPU did not change anything.
