I am using Windows 10 on an i5 computer, 16G of Ram, with the application installed on an SSD and my photos on a 4G drive. I have approximately 250,000 photos in my pictures folder. I installed Luminar 3 this morning and it took hours to complete the initial setup, I am not exactly sure how long it took because I had to go to work.
I tried to launch the app several times this afternoon and it took over 9 minutes for the app to launch with no additional photos added. I took photos at a basketball game this evening, copied 538 photos to my drive and lauched Luminar 3 again and it took over 12 minutes for the app to launch.
In comparison, I started Lightroom Classic CC, created two collections for the photos, imported the 538 photos into the collections and was ready to edit the photos in 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
I am really discouraged because I purchased Luminar over a year ago and waited patiently for the asset management module to be completed to make the software usable for my needs. I am not sure how to proceed!
