After upgrading Lightroom, it started to freeze on import, help centre created a new user on my Mac and so have been using that with the old catalogue until a month ago when now Lightroom quits unexpectedly and then will not reopen any of the most recent catalogues as it says they are corrupted.... losing the will.
Sorry to hear about the performance issues with Lightroom, could you please let us know the exact version of Lightroom and operating system you're working on?
Also, have you tried turning off the Graphics processor from the Lightroom preferences? Go to Lightroom > Preferences >Performance tab > Uncheck GPU > Restart Lightroom.
Yes tried that, managed to open one catalogue and have started work with that one but I still cannot back up any catalogues or export any catalogues
Which version of MacOS do you use?
Which version of Lightroom do you use?
At the moment the actual version of Lightroom Classic CC is version 8.0 If you don't has installed this version and you have subscribed a plan please install the latest update and check.
If you have tried to deactivate the GPU support?
LR Classic CC 8.0
It has not bee right for about 6 months since I was in touch last time. Using LR has become a nightmare. I am not sure what to do about sync’d catalogues which it now says it cannot sync as the only catalogue I can open is from 4 months ago… so the images I have shared on the mobile apps is diff top the catalogue I am on now… its all a mess.
At first could not open any catalogues (gulp) then support suggested I turned off the GPU support - did that, can now open some catalogues but some back up s cannot be opened. In desperation I am working with one seemingly stable catalogue and adding new images to that. However, I cannot back up this or ANY catalogue. Feel slightly worried as if this catalogue goes wrong, I have lost a lot of work. Help!
This LR CC has been buggy for a while and I losing confidence n this software which I have used for 10 years now.
Mac OS 10.14.1 LR 8.1
DId you ever get your buggy issues fixed I recently downloaded a new (?? 5.0 lightroom ) Dec 2021 ??do I have a really old one ??
