Does this fix LR 4's speed issues?

Can't wait to get home to upgrade from 4.1 RC2. I've been putting off a lot of processing due to all those performance issues driving me crazy.

Tried the new fringe removal function and it worked very well.

YES! Can't believe how well it works. Finally my cheap 75-300 will be a useful lens. ;)

With 8gb ram in my iMac, shooting fairly big files at 22mp, the old 4.1 was good, not great. Adjustments took time, that was the only issue for me (cloning).

Howdy All,

If you are reading about Lightroom 4 here but don't yet own any version of Lightroom at all; this still seems to be the best deal around at $99 with the purchase of any other item at the same time from 17th St Photo. A number of us have purchased it through this method with no issues. I'm now a happy, first-time Lightroom user :D.

The deal: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1181291

See Ya, Dave

Im running an old Pentium Dual Core T4400 with 4gig of RAM and the improvements over LR4 are vast
I would say now on a par with the latest version of LR3

Good to know, as my computer specs are just about on par with this. Cheers!

I'm still very disappointed in the spot removal tool. Granted, I don't use it often, but its performance is still indicative to me of the difference between LR 3 vs. 4.

When I initially anchor the point, and pull away that little circle/arrow thing, it works for a couple of seconds, then forcibly pauses for nearly five seconds, until finally allowing me to further manipulate the tool. Even does this on my 50D files, not just 5D. Sigh.

Hmm -- Todd, I see a bit of a pause, but less than a second. I'd say if you see a 5 second pause, then you obviously have a problem!

The trouble is that there are so many variables in our systems and stuff! And, I have things slow down like Internet browsers and such, then they may speed up or I close them down and restart, or I may totally log out and re-login!

Have you tried logging out, logging in, and just starting Lightroom without anything else running?

You're right, Tony...there are many variables that affect system performance.

It's just frustrating that all else being equal (such as my particular hardware, the things I leave open, etc.), the difference seems to be the version of Lightroom. And adding the larger raw files of my new camera to the mix isn't helping, either.

I'm sure I haven't exhausted all my troubleshooting options yet, though.

Have you left a Bug Report in the Adobe Forum? If the difference is that marked, they may be able to spot something, although yeah if you are shooting with one of the 33MP cameras, I'm sure that will make a diff!
