Hi. My LR is going so incredibly slow. Ive gotten a new, updated computer (macbook air) thinking it was that, no change. Switched from a hard drive to SSD thinking it was that, nothing. All my adobe apps are up to date. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling both LR and PS and i still cant figure it out. I'm a photographer and its killingggg my workflow. Please help!

What version of MacBook Air (i.e. processor)?

What size of internal disk?

How much space on the internal disk?

What version of macOS?

What version of Lightroom Classic are you using (i.e. see System Info under help menu for details)?

Where are photos stored (i.e. internal or external disk)?

adding to @Ian Lyons list of questions

 

What camera? Raw or JPG?

Lightroom (Lr icon) or Lightroom Classic (LrC icon)? What version NUMBER of Lightroom or Lightroom Classic?

 

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHAT ACTIONS IN LIGHTROOM CLASSIC ARE SLOW?

 

I realize that is a lot of questions, but you will help yourself get faster and more relevant answers if you answer ALL of these questions (not one or two or three of the questions, but ALL)

Camera - Sony a7riv

RAW files (extremely large files)

LRC v11.1

 

Literally every action is slow. It takes a solid 10 seconds for any healing or cloning to work. Adjusting any sort of color takes anywhre from 3-4 seconds per action and its CRIPPLING my workflow. Crop tool doesnt even show the image for a solid 5 seconds after I've pressed it.

This is your problem " 

  Free: 17.29 GB (17,293,516,800 bytes)

  Capacity: 499.96 GB (499,963,174,912 bytes)"

The free space on your main system drive represents 3.45% of the total drive capacity and you need at least 20% for efficient operation.

If the folder that contains your Catalog file and support data files including preview files. By default that folder is named Lightroom and it is a sub folder in your user Pictures folder.
You could move the folder ( Lightroom) to the external disk where your image files are stored provided there is sufficient space on that drive. Hopefully that would free up sufficient space on the system drive.

Also update the LrC application to version 11.2

Thank you. 

 

I keep trying to clear stuff off my computer but whenever I go to my documents and files it shows that there's literally like nothing on my computer. All my professional images live on my external and I dont have any other apps (other than the ones that come w macs) other than LrC and Ps installed. My catalogs are all stored on my SSD as well

So you are saying the Lightroom sub folder from the Pictures folder in your user account on the internal disk has already been moved to the external SSD?

As an example, my Lightroom Application has 52,253 image files imported. The Lightroom sub-folder located on my HDD at C:/ USERS/"myuser a/c"/Pictures/Lightroom.

The Lightroom folder contains my Catalog File which has an Extention .lrcat and several support data files including the Preview files. Note the Catalog file is a data file and does not contain image files. The size of the Lightroom sub-folder is 113.38 GB. See the screen capture of what is contained in the folder.

Yes. I don't have a lightroom subfolder on my laptop anymore. 

 

Strange because I just went to my "about this mac" and it shows I have different availability than what its showing me in my system information. Please see the attached photoScreen Shot 2022-03-24 at 9.24.34 PM.png
