    Is anyone here a photographer or hobbyist that uses Adobe products?

    I have a late 2013 15" mbpr with 16 gigs. When working in Adobe Lightroom, the program is rather sluggish all around. Edits aren't instant, and flipping through raw files leaves me waiting a second or two for them to fully render.

    I expected better performance out of the i7, 16 gigs of memory, and the ssd. In contrast, my ancient amd quad core desktop running windows 7 works lightning fast.

    Is there something I can tweak, or is it perhaps an issue of Adobe products running on os x?

    Generate 1:1 previews, so that decreases the time LR needs to regenerate them when you look at them.

    LR is a bit sluggish overall, at least that's my experience.
