i have updated lightroom to v6.9 CC (2015.9) from 6.8
maybe i'm wrong ,and i'm not sure because i used rarely the slideshow features , but if i remember right the first v6 version don't need to create preview to start a slideshow
well can somebody tell me if there is something wrong?
first i have selected some photos in the library panel (6) and i clicked on the slideshow , lightroom v6.9 started to create all the preview of every photos i have on my catalog
i created a new catalog with 174 photos only for test porpouse
second i tried to set to draft (slideshow preferences) but every time i close and start lightroom it sets it back to standard
i run the last version under windows 10 pro 64bit updated
about lightroom that can Not keep in their preference quality Draft is it a bug ?
and that when i start a slideshow is normal that i have selected few photos and lightroom start to create preview of all my catalog?
3) Am I right that the first version of lightroom v6 don't need to create preview to run a slideshow?
Could you please try the steps mentioned below: -
1. Create a new catalog.
2. Import a few images into the new catalog, while importing the images make sure that you have Build Smart Previews checked under file handling on the top right in the import panel.
3. Then try clicking on Slideshow and see if it starts creating previews or not.
Please let us know about the outcome.
i did exactly as you suggested
i have created 1 new catalog ,imported 50 photos with Built smart previews Enabled and i have clicked to start the slideshow from the library panel -> i could see the preparing preview window (like the screenshot) for less then a second , i could barely see the window and the slideshow starts immediately ! thanks a lot
but not solved about the slideshow preferences -> quality
lightroom v6.9 and 6.8 can keep in its preferences the quality draft or standard or high
I can't not setup to draft or hight , at every restart lightroom set it to standard again!
is it normal?
