    Image black in develop module when using GPU acceleration on Macbook Pro


      Since the update to Lightroom 6.6, I've been seeing the 'black image bug' in develop module again very frequently.


      Basically 1/3 of my photos appear black when viewing them in the develop module.

      If I select 'View' 'Before', the original is displayed correctly, when switching to 'After' it's black again. Even in split-view the 'Before' side is image, the 'After' side is black.

      If I play around with some settings and then select 'Auto' the image is displayed correctly again.


      If I deactivate GPU acceleration, then all images are displayed correctly, however I would like to use GPU acceleration.


      Any thoughts how to fix the issue?

      Is there some kind of logging that I could activate that would help you to fix the bug?
