    Hi Efraim,

    I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying Luminar 4!

    To answer your questions:

    1. Yes, performance is a big priority. Our engineers are working hard to make improvements with every update released.

    The time it takes to open raw files depends on several factors - the size of the image file and the specs of your computer, most importantly an SSD drive, RAM, and a dedicated graphics card.

    2. It isn't possible at this time to pre-load raw files, but I will share the suggestion with our developers.

    3. Image edits are cached, but can still take a few seconds to load based on file size, number of edits/layers, and your computer's specifications.

    We really appreciate your feedback and will continue to work hard to improve Luminar.

    I wrote my system specs, you saw it, it's more than enough.

    but can still take a few seconds to load

    as I wrote, up to 20 - 30 seconds, not 'a few'.

    based on file size, number of edits/layers, and your computer's specifications

    its takes so long even with an unedited raw file, I wrote it. and once again, my system specs more than enough (Lightroom load a preview in 2 - 3 seconds).

     

    I'm sorry, but it seems you didn't read my comment at all, just copy-pasted generic answer. shame.

    I've got the same Issue with speed.

    Windows 10, I7 3770, 24GB ram.

    It takes a long while to load NEF files with edits.15 seconds. SSD Crucial MX300

    Hi Hans. At the moment, our development team has two major tasks: the algorithm performance improvements and resource use optimization. These are large-scale tasks that in the long-term perspective will give the app a significant boost as well as increase the development speed. We are going to improve the performance in the next updates of Luminar 4.
