As Lightroom’s usage and sophistication grows, and as image sizes and photo collections also continue to grow, there has been increasing need for a comprehensive guide to ensure the program is always running as fast as it can, and is optimized for best performance on your system.

Fortunately, widely-acclaimed author and ‘Lightroom Queen’ Victoria Bampton has just published such a guide – and better still, she is offering this helpful new book to the public for free!

The Adobe Lightroom Performance Guide is now out, and contains 11 chapters on every­thing you ever wanted to know about Lightroom and speed. It is available as a free downloadable book in PDF format. Here is an overview of the topics it covers:

This free 47-page eBook contains all of the tips & tricks you need to make Lightroom run faster and get the best performance, including optimizing your hardware, your Lightroom settings and your workflow. It also contains an exclusive performance checklist to help you fix and improve any specific speed or slowness issues.

UPDATE: The Lightroom Performance eBook is no longer available, as the author has integrated all its content into the Lightroom Classic CC – The Missing FAQ book (not free). But all the chapters in the book have also been broken out into a series of free blog posts which you can find here.

In addition, the excellent Lightroom Quick Start Guides are still free and definitely available… They’re 131 pages full of tutorials designed to help you master the basics of Lightroom, while avoiding the most frequent problems. These books are bundled together.

As noted above, Lightroom CC is part of the CC Photography package, as well as included one of the many tools you get with the complete Creative Cloud – while Lightroom 6 is available as a standalone application with a perpetual license… Before you buy, you should know the differences between LR 6 vs. CC.

If you don’t have the software yet, just download a free working trial for either Windows or macOS (or try the whole Creative Cloud) – then install, run, and start your training…
