Adobe released this performance hint for Lightroom 4 this week. Among all tips, here are some of the more useful ones that one often overlook.
High Resolution Displays
Drawing to the screen can be slow when Lightroom is using the entire screen of a High Resolution Display. A high resolution display has a native resolution near 2560 x 1600 and is found on 30 inch monitors and Retina MacBooks. To increase performance on such displays, reduce the size of the Lightroom window, or use the 1:2 or 1:3 views in the Navigator panel.
Spot Removal Tool, Local Corrections, and History Panel
The Spot Removal Tool and Local Corrections Brush are not designed for hundreds to thousands of corrections. If you have an image containing many (i.e. hundreds) of localized adjustments, consider using a pixel-based editing application such as Photoshop for that level of correction.
If you have many corrections, check your History panel. The History panel has no limits and it does not get deleted unless specified. If you’ve been creating many local or spot corrections, your history might be long, which can slow Lightroom’s performance as a whole.
Clear the History panel by clicking on the X on the right of the History panel header.
Order of Develop operations
The best order of Develop operations to increase performance is as follows:
- Spot healing.
- Geometry corrections, such as Lens Correction profiles and Manual corrections, including keystone corrections using the Vertical slider.
- Global non-detail corrections, such as Exposure, White Balance, etc. These corrections can also be done first if desired.
- Local corrections, such as Gradient Filter and Adjustment Brush strokes.
- Detail corrections, such as Noise Reduction and Sharpening.
Note: performing spot healing first improves the accuracy of the spot healing, and ensures the boundaries of the healed areas match the the spot location.
Increase the Camera Raw cache
Increasing the Camera Raw cache in Lightroom’s preferences can help performance in the Develop module if you repeatedly work on the same set of images.
To reset the Camera Raw cache:
- In Lightroom, select Edit > Preferences > File Handling (Windows) or Lightroom > Preferences > File Handling (Mac OS).
- Increase the Camera Raw cache. If you’re not sure how much to incrase it it, start with 2-3 GB initially, depending on the amount of space on your hard disk and how you use Lightroom.
- You can also change the location of the cache if you wish.

The guys over at Creative Nerd put together this nice video sharing their tips on how to make Photoshop CS6 run faster. SOme of the tips they share includes -
- Closing any large files in Photoshop - Always close large files which you may have open in Photoshop, which you may not be using. Having to many large files open, and running will significantly decrease the speed.
- Turning off features - Turning off unnecessary features in Photoshop CS6 will significantly increase the speed, turn off options such as animated zoom and image previews would help.
- Changing cache in Photoshop - What I found helped increased the most was changing the levels in Photoshop. Changing the cache from to 4 to 1 was a huge help.
- Change drawing mode - I’m not entirely sure if this is a default setting, but ensuring drawing mode is basic and you will notice a difference in speed.

Adobe released this video with touch-up all done in the upcoming Photoshop CS6. According to Bryan O’Neil Hughes, senior product manager for Photoshop, “just about anything you can do to a still, you can do to video – in the same way that you use Photoshop today. The video in this example is a great example of just some of what can be done: transitions, filters, tonal adjustments, type, fades, animating stills – you name it.”

The guys over at Adobe posted a sneak peak video on the upcoming Photoshop CS6. The two-minute long video showcased the new Camera Raw functions, the new interface of CS6 and the rich cursor support. The interface now feature a choice of color themes apart from the original CS5 interface, three -stops of blacks and greys that is, much like the Lightroom and that’s pretty much it from the sneak preview and I do hope that Adobe will churn out a few more sneak peak videos for us to drool on soon.
