Cal in North Carolina says:
I am having issues with LR CC! It is running extremely slow on my very fast machine… My desktop has SSD drives, 32 GB RAM, very fast CPU, etc (Win 10). LR running this slow is a HUGE issue for me, as I am sure it would be for any high volume photographer. I have tried disabling GPU acceleration, & have optimized catalogue, but that didn’t help….
I have @ 65K images in my catalogue if that could be the problem? Any ideas??
Since I’m not aware of any recent Lightroom update problems so I did some research on Lightroom performance issues and problems related to large catalogs. Here are the things I recommended to Cal:
- This article recommends setting the cache size from 50 MB to 70 GB. The cache size is a preference in the LR file handling section of preferences.
- This article recommends 10 things to do to improve LR performance. This article recommends keeping catalog sizes below 10,000 images.
Anyone else experiencing slowness with large (>10K image) catalogs?
