Hi all, 

I have absolutely no idea why, but Lightroom Classic won't load up on my iMac.  I have just uninstalled and reinstalled it and it still won't load.  Is there anything I can do please?

In a first step you should try is to switch off the GPU support from the Lightroom preferences and check if that helps to fix the issue.

Go to Lightroom > Preferences > Performance tab > Uncheck "Use Graphics Processor" > Restart Lightroom.

The last time you used Lightroom Classic on your computer, how did that session end:

 

  • You closed LrC is the normal way, LrC asked you if you wanted to close, you clicked yes, LrC closed
  • Something went wrong, and you had to force LrC to close
  • Something went wrong, LrC crashed
