Hi, i am currently using a Macbook Pro 2020, Lightroom was working fine before the June update, after updating the software i started eperiencing slow performance visible when first opening Lightroom caching the files initially, also...... almost as soon as i start using Lightroom, the Macbook fan kicks in non stop and the computer gets hotter than usual, i didn't have none of these issues before the update, anyone else experiencing this?

You can uninstall the newest version and install LrC 9.2.1 from the Creative Cloud Desktop App.

To see the other, older, versions you have to enable that in the CC DTA Preferences.

1. Start LR, open the Activity Monitor, and clic on the CPU tab.  What's LR's CPU usage (% CPU) when you're not doing anything in LR?

 

2. In LR, click on the identity plate in the upper-left corner:

Is Face Detection enabled or paused?  It can consume a lot of CPU in background.

 

3. Click on the cloud icon in the upper-right corner:

Is cloud syncing enabled or paused?

 

4. "slow performance visible when first opening Lightroom caching the files initially". To what exactly are you referring? What did you see?

 

5. It's possible though unlikely that LR is rebuilding previews, which can take a very long time for a large catalog. About how many photos in your catalog? Have you left LR running overnight?

Thank you for the very detailed information guys, when i check the activity monitor, %CPU is 208-280 from Lightroom Classic while is just open not doing any edits, face detection is on and looks like is indexing about 9k images as of the writing of this post.

Adobe cloud sync is on but i recently wiped my adobe online storage and have since only synced about 150 images to the cloud.

slow perfomance basically when i first open Lightroom, after the splash screen when the app is fully open, it takes a while to show the images previews.

 

Edit: %CPU is 384 now from Lightroom Classic in Activity Monitor

update: so pausing face detection dropped the CPU ussage to 10% and fan stopped spinning, i guess i didn't have face detection on prior to the update, ill have to leave it overnight sometime to finish the process.

 

Thank you so much for your help.
