Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for improving the workflow when working with lots of images (such as wildlife shooting). Each time I click an image while in Library mode (gallery view) it takes a long time to load each respective image. And even if you click back on the same image after clicking somewhere else, it takes the same long time. The problem is that this makes it very hard to find the best image in a series. I'm fairly new to Luminar and can't see how anyone could get through a shoot over hundreds of images without getting annoyed at the latency. I really dislike what Adobe has done with Lightroom and wanted to replace it with Luminar. But while I love the results when it's used to process images, as a DAM tool, it's hard to quickly filter, tag, sort and reject images.
I'm using a 2017 MBP w/ 16GB of RAM and images stored on an an external array of 4x1TB Samsung 840 EVO SSDs (325mb/sec write, 1,720mb/sec read, not slow). Images are compressed RAW from a Sony a7r3.
I really want to use Luminar for my imaging needs. However, if this is the expected performance of using it as a DAM tool, I might look at another product that can get good processing results and serve as a DAM tool.
