LR3 Catalog size
Aug 22, 2010

Fellow LR3 users, a few questions (and my own answers if you're interested):

  • Do you work with multiple catalogs? I use only two: work and personal.

  • How big is your largest catalog? Mine is now 205,000 images and I keep adding more as I bring in archived images which are on other external disks.

  • Do you see a degradation in performance with a bigger catalog compared with a smaller catalog? I don't (quadcore PC, Win 7 Pro, 8GB ram, catalogs and PS scratch on a non-OS drive).

  • Do you see an increase of resource usage (memory/cpu) overtime (e.g. working on LR3 for a couple of hours)? I see an increase of memory usage (typically starts around 400K then grows sometimes upwards of 2.2GB of memory, regardless of the size of the open catalog or on the specific activity I perform in it).

Looking forward to hearing your experience.
