Lightroom Classic CC is STILL Slow

After returning from a trip to Jupiter Beach this past weekend I was excited to dig into the images.  Last year I upgraded my computer and at the start of 2018 I began a fresh new Lightroom Catalog just to ensure I had the best experience editing.

My report is...  Lightroom Classic CC is still painfully slow.  Really???  YES, really!

Lightroom Classic - Lightroom CC – What’s the difference?

Okay, I’ll admit the name changes for Lightroom and the addition of a new product can be a little confusing.  This article will talk about what the names mean, what products do for you, and some of the differences.

Adobe Lightroom on Notice

The company OnOne is releasing the beta version of their Photo Raw 2018.  This version has panoramic stitching, HDR, Masking Tools, and Versions (like virtual copies in Lightroom).  This software is a non destructive camera RAW editor much like Adobe Lightroom and has been evolving for some time.  However, it has been lacking in may key features which may be addressed in their 2018 version.  

As an individual who is really tired of how slow Lightroom has become I may give this beta a go.  My first thoughts are I'll never switch but I said the same thing about digital cameras back in the film days.  It is worth a fair shake especially if it solves a problem.  

What do you all think? 

Is Adobe taking too long to fix their slowness issue with Lightroom? (it's been two years since a major update Adobe...  come on!) 

Is there room for competition in the photo finishing side of photography?
