Are there an GOOD alternatives to Lightroom Classic? With the the "recent upgrade", I'm unable to work on my images. Lightroom continues to crash no matter how many time s I unistall and reinstall it.

The majority of issues people are having with LrC are GPU related, and reinstalling rarely fixes anything.

What exactly are we to look for involving the GPU?

I'm looking for a program than will not constantly crash. I've looked at
other programs, however they have a steep learning curve.

If running a virus checker, then make sure that you have exxcluded the LrC catalog, previews, etc.

Not a bad idea, to exclude LrC from the virus checker - it significantly improved the stability of Lightroom 13.3.1

The best solution seems to be to resolve the crash by isolating the cause. Lightroom Classic does not constantly crash for most people (if it did, all of us would stop using it), so it’s likely that the crashing is specific to your configuration. I personally have not seen Lightroom Classic crash in a long time, in fact I can’t remember the last time it crashed.

 

The problem with rushing off to an alternative is that if the cause of the crash is in that specific system, it might end up happening with alternative applications too.

 

Also, a lot of Lightroom Classic alteratives are not that hard to use. To pick the right alternative you just have to decide what parts of Lightroom Classic you like the most, because the real problem with the alternatives is, very few of them cover everything Lightroom Classic can do. Some alternatives are great raw processors, some are great organizers, some are great with metadata, some have AI features, but few offer features in all of those areas like Lightroom Classic does. Do you need printing, do you need plug-ins, etc.

Hi everyone,

 

Same things here, 13.3 is too buggy.

 

Right click sometime stops working.

It takes 30 seconds for a star rating or rejected flag to be applied.

Synchronisation takes ages, 10 by 10 images.

 

All started with 13.3 release, and now that I have added too many images to my catalog, i cannot rollback to previous one 😞

 

Please release a fix

If you have not made any edits to your images that use features in version
13.3, you can do what I did, install version 13.0 of Lightroom, this
resolved my issues with the progarm.

For what it's worth, I had to go back to 13.3.0 becuase even my 16 inch M2 Max full spec macbook was a jittery mess on 13.3.1.
