When trying to import an image to Lightroom CC 2015.10 from Pictures on my Mac OS Sierra 10.12.5, when I click Synchronize, the computer freezes and requires shut down/ restart. This happens about every 1 - 6 times that I try to synchronize to import a new image to Lightroom.

Where is the folder you're trying to synchronize? Internal drive? External? NAS?  And roughly how many photos does it have in it?

The folder I’m trying to synchronize is on the internal Macintosh HD in the Pictures folder.  I’m just importing one new TIFF image at a time into Lightroom from a folder that has from 1 to 50 TIFF images in it.  It started when I updated to macOS Sierra.  For years in the past it never happened.  I have not changed my standard workflow lately.
