  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Stop struggling with Lightroom! There's no need to spend hours hunting for the answers to your Lightroom Classic questions. All the information you need is in Adobe Lightroom Classic - The Missing FAQ!

    To help you get started, there's a series of easy tutorials to guide you through a simple workflow. As you grow in confidence, the book switches to a conversational FAQ format, so you can quickly find answers to advanced questions. And better still, the eBooks are updated for every release, so it's always up to date.

Develop module Freezing in Develop module

Operating System:El Capitan,
Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):CC Classic
I have early 2008 iMac running El Capitan. Lightroom CC was running perfectly until I downloaded Lightroom CC Classic. The program opens OK in the Library module but when I take an image into the Develop module the thing freezes, nothing moves /works except the cursor, cannot even force quit, the only way out is to switch the Mac off and reboot. This seems to be a similar problem to ajglazer.
Can anyone help please? Tony.

Maybe your GPU is not compatible. Start Lightroom Classic, go to Preferences - Performance and turn off the option to use the GPU.
This is the first time I have used the forum and you have made my day. Johan you are brilliant. Switched off the GPU and hey presto no freezing!!!!! Many Many thanks.
