    Lightroom performance iMac SSD internal or external?

      Hey!

      I have a 5k iMac running lightroom (I'm aware people have performance complaints). I have a fusion drive but my images are stored on a Lacie Rugged thunderbolt drive. The only performance issue I really have is the "loading" screen message in library and develop modes. I was considering upgrading my internal drive to an SSD but seeing as my images are on an external drive would it help much? I could test on my MacBook pro which has an internal SSD, but seeing its screen is half the resolution Im not sure it would be a solid comparison.

       

      Thoughts?

       

      Thanks!
