When will the slow issue with lightroom be sorted out?

  • Updated 2 years ago
Since the update of Lightroom CC2015.6, the system has been extremely slow. I have done all possible actions according to all the tips given on this forum but there is a memory leak that slows down Lightroom. Actually, each time I move from a picture to another, the data builds up in the memory and it gets almost full (up to the ceiling) after 12 to 15 pictures. Then I have to restart Lightroom to empty the memory. It is dead slow. Cannot work with such a product that I'm paying every month and there are no reaction from Adobe team to sort out that big issue. I see more "gadget" additions into programs than performance improvement. They should work thoroughly on the performance before moving into advance editing additions. Any one has a clue about Performance Improvement for Lightroom CC 2015.6?
Thanks.

Just rollback to CC 2015.5.1 and the Problems are gone.
10 minutes of work and everything is still there.

Could you please post the System Info that you see under the Help menu.
There is an issue specific to some configs and is expected to be fixed soon.

I use a 4K Screen, and it's virtually unusable. Dropping the screen resolutions to 1080p helps, but it's still very slow. I'm editing full RAWs from a 50mpix Canon 5DSr, so I expect some lag due to the file sizes. I've noticed that whenever I exit LR after this problem, there's some 2 or 3 Gb RAM missing - the Windows 10 Task Manager shows 3 -4Gb in use, but all the tasks in the task manager only add up to around 800Mb. Running a Memory Defragmenter (System Mechanic) restores this missing RAM after a couple of runs.

Hope this helps. Thanks

I dropped down to LR 2015.5.1, and dropped my screen resolution from 4K to 1080p. That helped a lot, but I still encountered problems. However, for several years, I've used a system optimisation utility called System Mechanic (recently updated to v16), which attempts to optimise CPU, RAM and Disk Writes. When I switched all the optimisation features off, LR became a lot more responsive (however, it still seems to have memory problems - around 2Gb seems to vanish from my system. Plus, it still slows down as I use it, requiring frequent restarts of my system).

Does anyone else with this problem use this utility? if so, what happens when you switch off the Live Boost features?

Also, does anyone know why LR uses so much Virtual memory, despite there being more than enough Real memory available, as per this;

Ii get the impression a great many people are having the same issue. Theres a level of anger building up largely because thetes zero response from Adobe. Any ackowledgement that there is a serious flaw in the current iteration of LR and that they're fixing it would help. Instead one gets the feeling that Adobe has a level of disdain for its customers.

Using 2 displays just highlights this issue very clearly. The 2nd display will show the updated photo immediately but the photo in the Develop panel will take forever to update! Lightroom is getting slower and slower with every release!

Just rolled back to Lightroom CC 2015.5.1 back to almost correct speed of edition although still a bit slow compared to earlier editions. At least i can edit my pictures in a timely manner.
