Hi there

Can you tell us:

Which Mac are you using?

What version of the Mac OS are you using?

Which exact camera model are you using to generate the RAW files?

All these may have a bearing on the issue you are having - very big RAW files on a 'slower' Mac on an older version of the OS...

Best regards


My Mac is an older one from 2011 so I cannot use some of the newer software such as has been suggested. I am using OS High Sierra's newest version.  The RAW files I am trying to use are ovf Olympus files. I have an Olympus OM-d-e-10, EPL-7 and a Panasonic G9. Like I said no problem with jpegs only the raws.  I have been researching the new M1 computers but am seeing some software problems. Seems like some do not play well with either the new chips or the Mac OS Mojave or Catalina?  My guess is that my older computer just does not play well with larger files.
