I am wondering if some of you are runnning lightroom with all the photos stored on NAS (Gigabites) and how fast is that working ?

Indeed I am about to replace my desktop computer (Apple M1) and I have to choose between storage space and it may be wiser to store all photos on my NAS (3 Tb) rather than on the mac SSD.

I am not a pro and i don't mind to wait a bit during big import session.

I am intersted in any experiences with lightroom and network storage.

Thank you,

Do you mean Lightroom Classic?

If so, many people use a networked drive to store photos for Lightroom Classic. You will not notice the trivial speed difference between photos stored on a network drive and photos stored on an internal drive. There should not be a problem unless the network is not configured properly or the network is malfunctioning.

Backups of your photos and catalog file are mandatory.
