While this is fantastic and really useful most of the time, when handling large files like stitched panoramas, my computer crawls to a stop as my 7700K is maxed out for each preset.
Could it be possible to disable that in the settings for such case ?
Recently I update the Lightroom. And I have a massive issue with speed performance. Basically, you guys change in develop module presets preview. When I hover my mouse above presets its start loading preset preview straight away on the main editing picture.
Specification of my computer is MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017), 3.1 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3. What I think is the latest from Apple.
I don't mind if this future is there for better-performing computers but if slowing down latest Apple laptop product then should be some options to shut down this future and only have the normal preview in the left top corner as in privius version.
If maybe someone knows where can be switch off this future I will really appreciate the help? I speak with one of the agents via online conversation from Adobe and he told me that I should return to an older version of Lightroom. But I like this colour profiles and all this jazz that they put together so I'm looking for a solution from the development team.
The new Live Preview of presets (when hovering over the preset) is great, and a feature that many have requested. Unfortunately it was released without an option to turn it off. It uses massive system resources to draw these live previews with every mouse over, and it's slowing things down.
Please just include a check box in the preferences dialog box to turn it off!
Lightroom 7.3 update / overlaying presets over selected image rather than navigation window is terrible, and theres no way to turn/toggle this new development off. Slows down workflow and is immensely irritating. - Forced to revert to LR 7.2
Solution - DEVELOP toggle ON/OFF for this function.
As a power LR user, I feel the dehaze slider should have always been located beside the clarity slider. Adding Adobe profiles above other panels is imposing, and preview rollovers (the ones being addressed in this thread) are frivolous. Not much of an update if you ask me (which no one did :).
I am actually slack-jawed that they could release something so poorly implemented.
This is a glaring example that Adobe has MAJOR issues with how they go about the process of development and for sure QC. If someone in Adobe wrote a specification for the programmer as to how this feature should work, with all of the recent emphasis to improve the speed, it seems STUPID that the spec did not address speed in some manner.
If the programmer did not raise a flag during programming to the spec writers, also STUPID.
If the QC folks did not test it out on a broad spectrum of computers (which I highly suspect from other releases they don't) and say "hey guys this ain't gonna fly with the customers" this is also very STUPID.
I guess the real QC folks (we users) did object!
You had at least two chances (programmer and QC steps) at not letting this one out the door before it was ready for users. But you blew it. When oh when will Abode learn from their mistakes of the past? Remember the definition of stupid... doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Adobe: your "process" needs serious work.
To flesh this out a bit: We have a size-able group of users who like this new behavior as well as a large group for whom this is a workflow disruption. How would you prefer to see the disabling of this new behavior?
Off by default and on by a preference setting?
The reverse (On by default and turned off by a preference setting?)
A non-preference way of activating/deactivating (button, keystroke, etc)?
1. Launch Lightroom Classic CC
2. Choose Edit > Preferences.
3. In the Preferences dialog, go the Presets tab.
4. In the Presets tab, click the Show Lightroom Presets Folder button. The root preset folder opens in the File Explorer.
5. In the File Explorer, navigate into the Lightroom folder.
6. Go to the link https://adobe.ly/2He219B and download the config.lua file. Copy the downloaded config.lua file into the Lightroom folder mentioned in the previous step.
7. Relaunch Lightroom Classic CC.
The System Info dialog (Help > System Info) should display the config.lua flags entry as shown below, indicating that Lightroom Classic CC is now disabling the live preset preview in the loupe view:
Develop.disableLoupePresetPreview = true
I can confirm that this worked for me. I have now also solved my connectivity issue (something 4 of the Adobe support staff over 4 remote sessions lasting an hour each time weren't able to do). The fix? Reboot my router...
It does slow down my process, because every time I hover my mouse over the left preset panel it changes the image or images when batch editing. And sometimes it leaves the preview showing even though the preset hasn't been selected. This causes me to have to go back over the left preset menu with my mouse to reset it, and I have to perfectly and slowly move my mouse to the right as not to preview a different preset I've created. Please take the preset preview away. I made my presets, I know what they look like, I don't need my hand held when selecting them.
I don't want LR thinking, hogging up resources, or doing anything other than what I dictate it to do with an actual click of my mouse.
