  • 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.

You are still using your video card to show you what you see on your screen. However, you are no longer using the little extra computer that came on the video card to perform other work at the direction of LR. In order to improve performance, LR allows you to tell it to offload some computing tasks to the processor on the video card. But, there is a wide variety of such cards on the market and in many cases the processor on the card (called a GPU) is not up to snuff in doing things it is asked to do in the manner that LR expects and you get these weird results.

If your GPU is compatible with LR you get better performance by using it but, as in your case, it is not compatible then, well, it doesn't work and you must turn off that feature. This is one area where there are either no universal standards, or there are too many different standards, or the card companies are not all that consistent in adhering to the standards resulting in many GPU's not being able to be used by LR. Unfortunately, yours is one of them.
