Hi there, I use to make lots of panoramas in LR and it realy takes lots of time to each one of them.

I incresed the size of my SSD and it helped a little, not to make the panoramics faster, but to don't crash in the middle. 

What is more inportant, RAM meory or processor?

Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the Lightroom Classic community. I'll need more info to help you figure this out. Please go to Lightroom Classic > Help > System Info > Copy & paste here.

 

What type of images do you work with? JPEG or RAW? How large are the usual outputs? The recommended specs on our page will somewhat help you with this: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/system-requirements.html


Exceeding or meeting this will help. However, before purchasing upgrades, please invest time in benchmarks & testing feedback on the internet with hardware configs that fall into your budget.

 

Thanks!

Hi, sory for the delay. Things are crazy around here...

I work with raw images. The outputs depends on how many photographs I am stacking together for the panorama and if thes photographs came from a 24Mp camera or a 42Mp camera.

What is more inportant, RAM meory or processor?

By @gugamillet

 

For panoramas specifically, I think memory is more important. Most Lightroom Classic image editing works fine on a computer with 16GB memory, but when I watch memory usage, panoramas and other multiple-image operations can result in more than 20GB of memory usage because they must hold and process multiple complete images in memory at one time. On a computer with less memory, it should still complete it without crashing because it will use virtual memory. (A crash might be possible if the amount of unused computer storage is so low that there is no room to create a large enough virtual memory swap file.)

 

The processor is less important. Any processor listed in the system requirements should be able to do a panorama merge without crashing. The only difference between processors is how fast it gets done.

This make a lot of sense to me.

I work in two differente computers, a macbook air 2018 and a Windows PC much better them the macbook but with only 16Gb RAM (macbook air with 8Gb Ram). The difference in speed for panoramas is not very big.
