Lightroom Classic 2021 is dog slow after initial speed boost
After years of complaining about how slow LR Classic is, the latest 2021 update brought me great joy... at least for the first two sessions I was using it. It was flat out peppy! Images were opening fast, going through the pick process was moving at a rapid clip.
Then today, the third session I'm using LR Classic 2021, it's BOGGED down slow. Slower than 2020 previously. I restarted the computer, left all other apps closed, and same speed behaviors.
I am running the latest MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 and have made no OS or software updates after updating LR Classic to 2021 version.
I'm running on a 2019 MacBook Pro laptop with no other issues of any kind.
