I am using LR 6.5 on a PC with these stats:
- Operating System = Windows 10 Home 64-bit
- CPU = Intel Core i7 4500U @ 1.80 GHz
- RAM = 8.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz
- Storage = 1862GB Western Digital WD My Passport 0827 USB Device (SUB (SATA))
I am using a Laptop now instead of my old Desktop and the Loading time is painfully slow. Is the speed to load a photo (in the Developing Panel from a Library) driven by the hardware that I'm using or is there something that I can do in the LR setting to speed that up? I really hope I can speed this up since I have 4,000 pics to review from my last trip.
Thanks for your help.
If you have turned on the Graphics acceleration, turn it off (Preferences->Performance Tab->uncheck the box)
Speed of opening a file in Develop is primarily driven by the CPU. By today's standards, your CPU is rather slow. So you would probably benefit from a faster CPU
Thanks for your help. I did the former and I'm guessing since I travel and have to use a laptop, that I can't really get a faster CPU short of buying a new computer.
