So sorry - I cannot assist as your description of "My Mac is an older one from 2011" is a bit fuzzy.

It could be a fully loaded MacPro or a modest Mac Mini - you really haven't given enough info - help us to help you...

Hope someone else can assist


It is an IMAC mid-2011 model running HighSierra OS. Plus, I have 12mb memory.

That's pretty much the answer.

It's old, slow, and processing raw takes more effort than a JPEG. Those Oly raws aren't particularly big, but that is particularly old software and hardware.

Probably 12GB. If the CPU is Core i5-2500S, benchmark = 3404 Passmark. Not awful.

I suggest trying RawPower, claimed to be the most efficient Raw converter for MacOS. However I think it would require upgrade to Mojave 10.14 from High Sierra.

I checked on RawPower and it does require Mojave which on my older computer will not work.
