Speeding Up Lightroom 4
Mar 28, 2013

I originally posted this in the PC Talk forum, but it doesn't feel like many Pentax users go there, so I'll re-post it here.

If Lightroom 4 is too slow for you (like it was for me) maybe this will help.  I've moved Lightroom's Catalog and Cache to a RAM drive and it's made a world of difference.  That, combined with a couple workflow ideas, and version 4 is finally usable.  I'm aware that an SSD can do the same thing, but this way is free.

If this has been discussed before, my apologies.  If not, I've created a webpage describing exactly how to do it, including where to find a free RAM drive.

Hope this helps.  It sure has cut down on the number of potty words I've been known to mutter over this issue.
