p.1 #1 · Lightroom 4 Speed on Mac


Since I upgraded to the D800 Lightroom has been a bit slow at times...and I suspect it has to do with the RAM which is allocated to the program.

My system is definitely fast enough, as I am running an iMac i7 along with 16GB of RAM and SSD.

I have been able to "upgrade" Photoshop by launching in 64 bit and upping the RAM from 2GB to 10GB...since then, Photoshop runs instantly, even on 250MB TIFF files...

I have played around a bit with Lightroom but can't seem to find where I could increase to RAM allocated.

Thanks for your help

Mark

Will be interested to hear responses to this as I'm also on an i7 Mac with 16GB of RAM and contemplating a higher MP camera.

You don't need to set memory limits (and can't). Lightroom will automatically allocate as much as it needs.

Photoshop, being a positively ancient application, is carrying a lot of baggage—manual memory allocation is part of that.

I've found that clearing the data cache and rendering the files at either Standard or 1:1 greatly improve performance. But I, too have been having a little bit of trouble.

This is a speed test for downloading and browsing speed in Aperture, Lightroom and Photo Mechanic:
