Lately, I have been using lightroom cc (not classic) a lot, and for no reason, lightroom went crazy with the RAM usage. I have a new and Stronge Computer that I specially bought for editing and adobe software.
- Amd Razor 9 3900x 12 core processor
- Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super
- 32 GB of RAMS
Before a week, I had 16 GB RAM, which was supposed to be enough, but after some editing in lightroom, he started getting slow and sometimes stuck specialty when I exported photos. When I open the activity monitor, I saw that lightroom using like 80% of my Ram. So I went and bought another 16 GB RAMS (now I have 32GB RAM), and I thought I solve the problem.
Three days later, and the same problem starts to appear again. Lightroom starts to use more and more rams. Today I edit some photos, and I felt it was slower than usual, so I checked again and saw that lightroom was using 15 GB of RAM..
Is there anything I can do to solve it? Should I switch to Lightroom Classic?
I'm having this same problem. I'm running MacOS Big Sur 11.2.3 the latest version of LR Classic 10.2. Let me know if you find a solution. I think mostly goes up when I use the Develop module, even if just sitting idle.
