Nik plugins performance
I am not satisfied with performance of my Nik plugins on 2011 top Imac.
I runs like slideshow, it takes seconds to see entire image after aplying filter in Color Efex pro 2 ..
Any tweaks recommended ?
Can you add more RAM?

I have 16 Gb
Hmmm, I have a 2008 Mac Pro and only 8 GB of RAM and it seems a bit slow, but I can mostly see near instant results. I am not sure what is going on at your end, but that doesn't seem right. Are you using Aperture, Lightroom, or Photoshop?
I would imagine it would take a lot longer to render a change in a large tiff file than a small jpeg. The larger the file the more work it has to do. This will affect speed.
I ma using lightroom an ptotoshop . External editing. Hmm anybody has similiar issues. On 13 inch macbook pro it goes smoothly. Maybe resolution matters?
