    Lightroom 11.3.1 so slow... (Mac Monterey)

    I run LrC on an M1 Mac. At first it was lightening fast, however after a few months, launch time and some editing functions started to slow down. Under file menu(on my Mac) is Optimize Catalog. I ran that and LrC ran as fast as it did originally. I found this strange as I do run Optimize...

    Sync LR Classic stuck on "Syncing 1 Photo"

    I have this exact same issue. In the Sync Activity it shows 21 images downloading. However these images have been deleted from the catalogue. I can not find a way to delete these listing in the Sync Activity? I can still sync new (other) images taken on LR mobile, so this more of a curiosity...

    Dare I Ask

    I replaced my 2015 iMac with 32 Gb of RAM, with a Mac Mini M1 with 16 GB of RAM and a 32 in Dell monitor. The LR on the Mini runs circles around my old system. Am assuming when LR can run native on the M1, speed will even will be faster. My old iMac had a 27 in screen, the new Dell is 32"...

    Wrong info on Loupe View overlay

    In Loupe View overlay I like to have the megapixels for the photo displayed. When I round trip from LrClassic to PS and back, the megapixels of the TIFF file returned is often several times the size of the original file. This is correctly shown in the panel on the right under EXIF and IPTC...

    External Editor Problems

    I get this behavior when I choose edit in Photoshop when editing a RAW file (opens in Photoshop without option to edit original, copy or copy with LR edits). If I choose edit in Photoshop with a TIFF file I do get the options. Also when I choose edit in for any of the Topaz product plug-ins...

    Lightroom Release 10.1 and Your Late 2015 iMac (May Crash)

    I also have a late 2015 iMac with Big Sur and experienced similar problems. Stumbled on the "disabling the GPU" solution and so far so good.... It also takes much longer for LR to launch since changing to Big Sur.....

    LR launch time increases over time with Big Sur

    I just tried an experiment. Launched LR and it took about 40+ seconds. Quit LR. Then turned Wifi off land launched LR. It took a mere few seconds. Then turned Wifi back on. Definitely think you are correct. Think I will use this process to launch LR, as it only entails a couple of extra...

    LR launch time increases over time with Big Sur

    Thanks for your reply John. I did a reboot and the initial launch was a spectacular 6-7 seconds. Each subsequent launch got longer and has settled in at about 33 seconds. Not a big deal, but am curious about why this happens.

    LR launch time increases over time with Big Sur

    Thanks for your suggestion. I did disable all my plug-ins(do not have LogiOptions) and it launched amazingly quickly after doing that. Sadly each subsequent launch again took longer. Seems to have settled in at about 40 seconds.

    LR launch time increases over time with Big Sur

    Since installing macOS Big Sur, Version 11.0.1, LR launches almost instantaneously with the first log-in on Creative Cloud. Takes roughly 7 seconds from clicking on the LR icon to being completely open. If I quit LR and then re-launch, the launch time increases gradually with each launch...

    LR mobile to LR Classic.... how to prevent re-download

    Hmmm, I think I jumped the gun on this. I had taken a couple of hundred photos on the phone. Then downloaded them to my folder in LR Classic. Then moved them from that folder to a different folder. I then clicked on the LR Identity plate and saw it was syncing a quickly escalating number of...

    LR mobile to LR Classic.... how to prevent re-download

    I use the camera in LR Mobile on my iPhone to take photos, which I then download to a specific folder in LR Classic on my desk top titled "iPhone 11 Pro" . However, after I down load a photo and if I then move that photo from the iPhone 11 Pro folder to a different folder within LR Classic...

    Keywording Help

    Thank you.....now that you've mentioned it, creating a static collection is obviously another way to tackle this problem. Think I was so immersed in the issue with the drop down I neglected thinking of an alternative method of dealing with the issue. Thanks again

    Using Lightroom Classic 9.0 on an iMac. I have been created a large number of keywords and over time some keywords are no longer relevant and have been deleted. However when I type in the keywording tags box these deleted keywords continue to show up in the suggested keywords drop down (not...

    Keyboard Shortcut

    I use Affinity Photo as my external editor. There is a keyboard shortcut (Cmd E on Mac) for launching Photoshop. Is there a way to create a keyboard shortcut for launching a different external editor such as Affinity? And while I am writing on the forum...another question. As I recall...

    That right click suggestion is what I was looking for. I don't need this info a lot and right clicking to see which collection(s) an image is in is a perfect solution. You other information is good to know on background as well. Thank you for taking the time to write a reply. It is...

    Smugmug-Lightroom Classic Question

    Using a color for Smugmug photos is an excellent suggestion. I had been mulling using a keyword, but that is a major drawback if that photo is then deleted from Smugmug. One question; "I've changed the Blue color to Smugmug". I think I know what you mean, but not sure how to accomplish...
