Lightroom is a great way to manage all your images and speed up your workflow but sometimes, especially if you have a very large catalog, things can slow down.
Its already been widely reported (CNET, Scott Kelby) that if you have a large number of exports to do, then breaking them into chunks that run at the same time can sometimes speed things up. However the LightroomLab has just posted a range of other options that might help speed things up.
The article includes ten tips for speeding things up, as follows:
- Optimise your catalog
- Get a better computer
- Don’t automatically write changes to XMP
- Close other programs
- Restart occasionally
- Build previews before you need them
- Tweak your machine
- Enlarge the camera raw cache
- Watch your catalog size
- Embed metadata when importing
