Hi,

I am looking for a last time for support before I jump ship. I have recently installed Capture One for my Fuji X files and the difference with Lightroom is huge. Jobs which were taking ages in LR are down done almost instantly. I have tried many things in the past but it seem LR just has a huge problem with performance. I have attached a video of the slowness in action. In the video I do some really basic edits on a Fuji raw file. If anyone could tell me if this is normal, that would be appreciated. I am at the end of my tether with Adobe products. https://youtu.be/5wJjM8I-T50

Its super slow, one thing that has helped me was clearing the history on a ton of images Im done editing. I know it doesnt solve this problem but might help a little.

Thanks for the suggestion. Have tried clearing caches etc. It speeds things a bit for a short time but before long it's back to its old self.

The first thing that 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.

If Lightroom doesn't start correctly the please see "Solution 2" in the document behind the second link.

Another step is to try to reset the Lightroom preferences.

If this doesn't help we need more informations about your environment. 

Which operating system do you use? 

Which version of Lightroom do you use? 

Please post the exact version and not only phrases as "recent", "latest" and so on. 

 

If you're don't using the latest version (it's 10.3) please update your version and check again.
