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
Unchecking "Add Photos Screen" didn't help.
I tried GPU disabling before, no difference at all.
Now i just installed 2015.1.1 and it got a little bit better, but still far from acceptable
CPU Load while browsing through pics goes up until 300%.
Is it normal that the fans are running at all while browsing and rating pics in Lightroom?
I have been reading all these threads about the poor performance from LR 6 by many users with high performance computers. I have an iMac 27" Retina mid 2015 computer. I am running El Capitan 10.11.1 and Lightroom CC 2015.2.1 and not experiencing any unusual problems.
One of the new features introduced in LR 6 is Facial Recognition, I have not activated or used this feature. To me this could require lots of resources to "scan" a very large catalog. Could this be causing problems for some users.
Just a thought that occurred to me.
i already disabled that hough
Difference between 2015.1.1 and 2015.2.1 is really minimal.
Fans were running like crazy this morning.....
After hours on the different hotlines neither Adobe nor Apple seem to be able to help me....
Since this is already the second MacBook i will probably return it and go back to Windows
Today i did an hour of normal working in Lightroom (few corrections, a radial filter, usual stuff and nothing fancy) after 10 minutes the fans started and didn't stop for about thirty minutes....
No Second monitor, nothing...
Same hardware, same versions - I too have this problem, so something is wrong with this product on Mac. Unuseable as of now
Lightroom performance has been getting steadily worse over the last 18 months. As soon as I use a brush my fans kick in and don't stop until I quit Lightroom. I have no such problems with any other apps including Photoshop and Davinci Resolve.
Same issues here. LR is terrible on my MBPr. Fans go into high gear just looking at my damn photos. WTF?
