Adobe admit that Lightroom’s performance has to be sped up. Many of us have struggled with very slow Lightroom in recent times and Adobe noticed that and are saying that Lightroom performance is a priority.
One of very common complaints from most photographers is Lightroom being very slow. Even users with some ridiculous amounts of RAM and processing power struggle to have Lightroom run smoothly.
So far Adobe were silent about this matter but a recent post on their blog sheds some light on the problem.
Tom Hogarty, photo program manager at Adobe, says:
I would like to address concerns recently voiced by our community of customers around Lightroom performance, as improving performance is our current top priority. We already understand many of the current pain points around GPU, import performance, certain editing tasks and review workflows and are investing heavily in improving those areas. Over the past year we’ve added numerous enhancements to address your performance concerns but we understand we will have a lot of work to do to meet your expectations.
So if you’re a frustrated user, you can let Adobe know by filling this survey from Adobe.
