    Folder not showing images

    By Project do you mean Folder? Can you actually see the two photos in LrC? Or are you finding it difficult to locate them? Try using the Filter bar, text filter, search for the filename to identify where they are according to Lightroom.

    Library module How should my new SSD External HD be formatted for best LRC performance I am using an IMAC

    Auto-complete not working for person keywords

    Hi Mark That's good, and my apologies for being a Mac person where it's one file! The Helper file contains information that Lightroom would otherwise need to go and look for - lists of folders, for example, and Keywords. Sort of like a cache really. When it's deleted, this gets rebuilt as...

    Auto-complete not working for person keywords

    LR (classic) running v slow on brand new M1 laptop Mac

    You're probably best hearing from someone with an M1 machine. I know Cletus has the iMac and Mark the MB, but the general recommendation was for 16GB RAM. These posts may be of interest, but wait for one of those two to comment...

    LRC on internal SSD with Images on internal HDD ?

    That's exactly the way I have mine set. SSD for catalog, previews makes a big difference. Sounds good!

    Problems with a blank View Window in the develop module

    It was a solution for the poster. As Louie mentions, the benefits of GPU depend on the resolution and system spec. Peter - why Classic 8.1 and not the latest (10.3)? I appreciate it might be a system restriction.
