Scratch Disks and Lightroom
Personally I don’t feel I need to set too much thought to it. As I understand it it gets used for the previews of images as you scan through them…. but it doesn’t create full size previews unless you set it to do so ….
So when you land on an image it’ll read the smaller preview and display it whilst reading and decoding the full size image and displaying it a second or so later…. rendering the preview pointless imho.
Unless you really can’t stand that fraction pause of waiting for the full image to render … Just leave it be.
Lightroom can crash occassionaly … it always has done. When it asks to back up the catalogue I let it do so just for the reason it can crash.Posted 10 months agohols2Member
I thought I was mistaken, I thought I heard your words
Tell me how do I feel? Tell me now, how do I feel?
Those who came before me lived through their vocations
From the past until completion, they’ll turn away no more
And still I find it so hard to say what I need to say
But I’m quite sure that you’ll tell me just how I should feel today
I see a ship in the harbour. I can and shall obey
But if it wasn’t for your misfortune, I’d be a heavenly person today
And I thought I was mistaken, and I thought I heard you speak
Tell me, how do I feel? Tell me now, how should I feel?

Some good general info here:

Biggest improvement I made to my workflow was to use the Import function in LR to copy direct from my SD cards to the HDD. You can set LR to build the 1:1 previews after it’s imported the photos, so once you set the import running you go off and do something else/surf the web/whatever. With the 1:1’s built, browsing through in the Library module is pretty quick. Shortcut keys G, E and D are my most used ones to switch back and forth between the two library views and the Develop module.

Good tips there Kit, thanks
How are your drives arranged then? I’m presuming you have another drive with your OS etc on, and your 128 SSD is a dedicated drive for LR? And the USB is a dedicated drive for pics/library? And does this arrangement simplify things and make everything run smoother/faster?
Am I near or completely off? (My IT skills are about the same as my biking ones 😉 )
