  • Updated 4 weeks ago
After using Lightroom Classic CC in develop mode I'm getting spinning color wheels. After a a few minutes, spinning is constant and I'm totally stuck. I've rebooted several times, paused the sync, cleaned my memory, even deleted and reloaded Adobe CC and Lightroom Classic CC. Need help please. I can't operate at all after five minutes.

Hi James,

Can you please post your "System Info" [LR -> Help -> System Info]

You could try turning off the graphics processor in Lightroom preferences under the Performance tab.

Here, also is a list of general ways to enhance Lightroom performance:

Thanks a lot!  Turning off the graphics processor definitely helped.  I can at least finish my job tonight ... at least so far.  But something's still wrong - I've had this computer for a few months and Lightroom performed beautifully, smooth and without any hesitation.  Not true now, it's definitely slower.

Thanks SO much, Sumeet!!
