That's great news, Dave. Any new or nagging problems?

Sorry, no internet service over the weekend.  I haven't found any new problems.  It's definitely faster on my Vaio notebook (vista32 4g).

I did notice a few lagging "three-dot" indicators yesterday, but that could be my system, since my photos are on a usb2 portable drive.

On my 2x1.42Ghz Mac G4 /w 2GB no noticeable speed improvement on my 25,000 image catalog. Gives me plenty of time to consider a 64 bit Mac Pro!

On Mac platform 64bit optimisation makes a huge difference to preview rendering, not so much on Windows.

Thanks Ian - that is exactly the issue.

I've just installed this on my Mac and find significant performance improvements. Adding images to collections is now much faster (would take several seconds before, and would freeze as my mouse was dragging the stack of images onto the collection name - not when I released the mouse). Also I was previously getting random wheel spinning in the Develop module - this is now fixed as well.

Took a while, but I'm glad they seemed to take their time and get it right first time - well, second time =)

Cheers,
Peter

I'm using LR 2.0 intensively on Windows XP Professional SP2 and haven't noticed any of the issues 2.1 is supposed to address. It's really very fast and efficient as is in this environment.

Mark - out of curiosity, how big is your catalog? How many photographs?

Peter

Hi Peter,

We haven't conversed in a while - hope things are going well for you.

My LR catalogue is not large - only about 1100 images; I used LR-1 for web galleries, but recently adopted LR-2 as my main processing pipleline. It is all subdivided into Collections of course; the size of a Collection would be anywhere in a range of 10 to 150 or so images  and within the Collections the images are rated. So I'm never really working with a large amount of stuff actually on call. Done this way, I don't think the catalogue size is a variable affecting the program's overall performance because I adjust images one at a time and it all works seamlessly in real time. When I open the program, it automatically loads the last-used set of images, but since these sets are not large, it also loads real fast. Hope this clarifies what you're interested in.

Cheers,

Mark

Mark -
Yes, been a while - things are indeed going well for me! Hope the same is true for yourself.

I suspect the reason you're seeing no problems is the small catalog size. A large part of the performance problems in the current version is an inefficient database design, I reckon. I'm speculating, but when I first installed LR2, I had no problems with performance. It was only after my catalog grew to 40k+ images that things started to really hurt.

I ran the catalog optimizer a few times, but to no avail.

Cheers,
Peter

OK Peter, thanks.

Would creating multiple Catalogs and numerous smaller Collections solve it?

Mark -
Multiple catalogs, probably. Smaller collections, I don't think would affect it that much.

But, it's moot anyway as 2.1rc1 seems to have corrected the problem. Been plenty stable for me since I downloaded it, but if you're unsure no harm waiting for the final release.

Cheers,
Peter

Well,  I thought RC 2.1 was doing better but then the nasty hangs began again.

Win XP Pro SP3
Intel Core 2 Duo
4 GB RAM

Same behavior on my machine as 2.0 where Task Manager sees two instances of LR running and one is (not responding)

I let it report the error back to MS.

If you got the box, then it's on the back side of the DVD case, near the bottom.

If you bought it electronically (i.e., for download) you should have the serial number via email.

If you went either route and lost it, then contact Adobe support and they can help you.

Otherwise, you are asking for another user's valid license key to use with your copy of LR, which is not good.

Asking for another users valid licence key as your first post is a good way to get yourself booted.

Reach into your pocket, pull out your wallet and go and buy it like the vast majority.

If you buy it you are actually contributing to future improved versions - a very good thing.
