I just downloaded the new Lightroom, as part of my photography plan through Creative Cloud, and immediately started importing photos with intention to edit them. After strictly importing the images, leaving Library view, and entering Develop, the images looked like this? I've used Lightroom 4.4 for years, so I like to think I have a good head on my shoulders, but I have never ran into anything like this. I'm not seeing any automatic developing going on during import or anything of the sort. Any chance someone can help me figure out what may be happening?
Two possible problems here.
- Your video card is not compatible with the LR 6 hardware acceleration code. Turn it off at menu: /edit/preferences/performance/
- Bad monitor profile. LR 6 is more picky about this than previous versions; recalibrating the monitor might fix it.
My bet is the video card.
You were absolutely right. This is an older laptop, but it's held up pretty well with most programs I've thrown at it until now. Thank you so much for getting back to me about this.
