Before Luminar 4 came out we were told it would be faster. Lies. Before Luminar AI came out were were told once again it would be faster. Lies.
I'm an event photographer and need to edit 1000+ images in a folder at a time. I'm still getting delays switching between images, either the image takes time to load, or the edit controls are greyed out and need to load. Simply zooming in and out still causes the image to blur and need time to load, ridiculous. It's no faster than version 4. (5+ seconds at least delay each time, but can vary and take longer as time goes on, then crash at any time)
Why is it that every time I launch Luminar it starts in gridview, the pictures load extremely slow. But also always in "Capture time" even though I have to change it EVERY time to "File name". Why Doesn't it save my settings or how I had it, FILE NAME? So i have to then wait for the thumbnails to load, and thus causing more delay, slow down, many times crashing? As it did in version 4.
(even as I'm typing this waiting for the pictures to load, Luminar crashed! Not the first crash I've had in less than 24 hours either)
In Templates "For this Photo" is there supposed to be a horizontal scroll? Because I can only see 1 template and 1/3 of the next templete to the right, and no way to scroll or see what other templates are recommended
This catalog system is no better than 4. You focus so much of fancy bells and whistles you need to focus on the meat of your program and make sure it functions properly. You've had years now, this is inexcusable.
I had really hoped you figured things out and had a catalog system that worked, similar to Lightroom or Capture One. When you import images with those programs, it also generates the previews then. Takes some time to import, but would rather it take time at the start and have previews in the catalog (like LR and C1) then having it delayed as I'm trying to process images.
My system isn't a potato, and should have no problem running a photo program. NONE of my other programs give me any of these issues or slowdowns that Luminar has for years. (Photoshop, Lightroom, Apple Photos, Capture One, DXO Photo Lab, On1 Software, ExpsureX6)
I have 1800 pictures loaded into Luminar but the catalog is only 200Mb in size, what the heck is it doing? Not a whole lot.
