Lightroom crashing every time open. Huge memory leaks without even starting to use app.

Whenever I open Lightroom on Macos (Mac Studio M1 Ultra and MBPro Intel /Late 2019) the memory use rises very quickly (to 90GB+) until it freezes and crashes/freezes often requiring a reboot. I'm on latest Sonoma but this occurred before upgrading. Have tried updates when available with no effect. Have uninstalled/reinstalled and exact same thing happens.

 

I regularly use Lightroom on iPhone and iPad with no issues at all.

 

Am I missing something? It's totally unusable. Help appreciated Thanks.

I'm afraid you can't do anything other then waiting and pray for a quick update fixing the bug.

I have the very same problem on a Mac with 64GB of ram and at least 50GB free. It's definitely a huge bug in Lightroom.

 

My config:
CPU: M3 Max
RAM: 64GB
OS: Sonoma 14.2.1
SW: Lightroom 7.1.2

Available free RAM: 52GB

 

Before opening Lightroom, I have more then 50GB of RAM available. A couple of minutes after opening Lightroom I get the error message "Your system has run out of application memory" and I have to force quit it.

Lightroom Classic works great, all the other apps from Adobe work great, (including the most demanding ones like After Effects and PremierePro), only Lightroom has this issue. 

All the general advices about memory management doesn't fix the problem, there's a critical bug with Lightroom consuming more then 50GB without doing anything. I have a very small library in Lightroom, since I work mainly with LR Classic...

Thanks for the reponse. Pretty terrible from Adobe but at least I can stop wasting time trying to fix and just keep an eye out for a fix now.

I'm having the same problem. Imac M3, 24g of RAM. Whenever I open LR Classic, it freezes. The only workaround is to reboot the computer. I'm running the latest OS and the latest version of LRC.

Has anyone at Adobe acknowledged this at all? it's been months since I first posted this and I still can't use the app on desktop. What am I paying for when I can't even get a response?

 

If this were to happen with After Effects or Photosop I literally would not be able to do my job.
