  • Lightroom develop Mode very slow to respond to commands

    When I try to get a photo ready to print and I am in the window to develop, the response time when I try to make adjustments to the phots are not acceptable. Very, very slow and almost impossible to accomplish what I need to do to get the photo in print mode. I have a blockage somewhere but I am at a loss to know how to fix this problem. Any help greatly appreciated

    Issa, john brings a very valid point

    I had some problems not unlike yours, and all that was needed was an update for my Nvidia driver.

    Because I updated the driver, my lightroom {and computer} runs smooth as silk.

    You can check, to see if a new driver is available...

    I hope that wiser member with chime in here?

  • CC of Lightroom is stuck in develop mode

    When I click on LR CC for the throw, all first library mode begins to come toward the top and then he passes to develop mode where it hangs up automatically and won't do anything else.  What is going on?

    Hi colrehogan,

    You must disable GPU preferences in Lightroom.

    First you must reset the Lightroom preferences.

    Steps to follow:

    Stop Lightroom.

    Navigate to the preferences file:

    Mac OS: /Users/ [user name]/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.Lightroom6.plist

    [Windows 7, 8: C:\Users\[user name] \AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Preferences\Lightroom 6 Preferences.agprefs

    Rename the file from Lightroom 6 Preferences.agprefs.old preferences

    Now, when you launch the Lightroom it will open on the library Module.

    Go to the editing Menu on the top of the page (Windows) Menu / click the Lightroom on top (Mac)

    Click on preferences

    Go to the performance tab

    Disable the GPU there settings.

    Restart the Lightroom

    Let us know if this can help,

    Kind regards

    is it possible to have two different images in "develop" mode  I need to match the color and other image to the other.

    Select the reference image and choose window > secondary display > Magnifier (locked). Now the image you want to change, and start working. You can refer to the secondary display window while you work on the image you are editing,

    If you have a second monitor attached, the entire second monitor may be the secondary display.

  • My pictures as soon as I switch to 'develop' mode completely to chance

    I'm fairly new to Lightroom and I would love to work with her, but I have no idea of what is happening to my photos. I've seen a lot of tutorials and find out how to import a picture and what I can do with the mode of development. But as soon as I import one of my photos (JPEG format) and go to "develop" - mode, my picture is kind of screwed upward and I don't know what to do. I tried it with pictures of external hard drives, as well as with the photos on my laptop. Also, I closed and restarted my laptop, but it's always the same.

    problem lightroom 1.jpg

    It's the photo I just imported into Lightroom. So far, everything looks good. But as soon as I push the button "develop" in this case: "."

    Why my picture than elsewhere when I try to change it and how can it change so that I can actually see my photos with the original colors?

    I hope I can find someone who can help me. Thank you very much!

    Looks like a problem with the communication of hardware acceleration with your video card.

  • RAW of Nikon D810 images appear darker after importation develop mode - why?


    I have a problem with the LR. I shoot in raw, and after copying the files on my pc, I choose several pictures and import them into LR. After this step, I want to continue with the mode of development. Subsequently the following problem: the image in the develop mode has changed - it's much darker and the colors aren't the samet. Even if I change the example flat camera mode I get the same resuslt as the original raw file. I do not understand the problem - maybe you can help me?

    Thanks in advance

    LR version 5.7

    The color space, running on the development module and the library module is completely indifferent to what looks like your image. It is not serious, and the difference is extremely subtle and really visible only on the screens of the range very high-end. In addition, color space in develop is not prophotoRGB, it is once again a linear gamma with primary prophotoRGB but space called MelissaRGB which is quite different, not important for this.

    He must know one thing more to diagnose your problem: when you return to the library, the images are dark or do they go back to the Lite version? If so, you are dealing with several possibilities. The first is as already mentioned a monitor profile. You should re - calibrate your monitor with hardware calibration. If you don't have that, test that possibility by assigning the sRGB profile to your monitor in the monitor properties pane. If this fixes it, you must get a puck of calibration to calibrate your monitor, the problem is caused by a bad monitor profile that has been installed by an update of the system. These are very common on the windows platform and even if other applications behave normally, that is the question.

    Second option is that your graphics card is not dealing with well GPU acceleration and omitting the color management. Test by going in the Lightroom preferences, selecting the tab performance and power of the graphics card acceleration off. Restart Lightroom and check. (update: I see that you are on LR 5.7: this option does not exist here so ignore this notice)

    If none of these fix the problem, and after that you spent to develop, the image is too dark in the library, that several other issues could occur. First is that you may have set a default value for the camera. Make sure the settings are zero on your images after importation. They could be zero if you apply a preset to the importation, or when you set a default development setting. Reset it by going to preferences-> presets, and then click 'reset all settings default development. " You see the change of the image when you go in develop because the library, firstly the jpeg preview the generated camera is shown and only when you are going to develop is the actual raw image get rendered by Lightroom.

    Another issue that could happen is that you use dynamic lighting on your camera modes. Nikon calls these active D-lighting. You must completely disable those. What the camera does when you have those active is to underexpose the image by a stop or two and then highlights the tag of the raw image with an indicator that shows the Nikon software to increase exposure compensation and make an HDR processing on the image to trigger shadows and bring down. Lightroom can not read these tags and just makes the image from raw data (which are underexposed!). In the library first see you the jpeg in-camera image and that the image was made by the camera using the HDR technique. You are better expose properly and leaving these modes if you want raw data of highest quality.

  • Lightroom development [Blue screen in the develop module]

    I am new to lightroom and I can't seem to put my photos. I was able to import them into lightroom. In the picture below, when I select develop, I get a blue screen. I click on the image in the scroll bar (which I've cropped this image), but I always get this blue screen. Can anyone help?

    Check the answers to another thread - development - blue screen!

    Most likely, the graphic processing unit cannot display the image in the develop mode.
