How to make Lightroom Classic run faster?

Make your Lightroom run faster!

You might heard of several ways to make your Lightroom run faster like the below.

  • Use Smart Previews for Editing.
  • Increase your Camera RAW Cache.
  • Open in Low Resolution.
  • Don't use the Graphic Processor if your GPU is not powerful.

Well but none really works or rather minimal improvement? This solution is for you! RAWSIE!

"A Dream Come True RAW Compressor"

I mean seriously, you can't beat physics! I have been dreaming for a program to compress RAW files for a long time and finally dream comes true! RAWSIE is here to save us photographers life! When you have RAW file size that is close to JPEG file size, you know editing will be a breeze!

Yes, I have saved 67.9GB just by running RAWSIE on a recent Pre-Wedding images!

2990 RAW images clocked a massive 71.21GB and after RAWSIE, the file size is only 29.18GB! That is 59% reduction in file size!

The above image was shot with Sony A7iii and average file size of A7iii RAW file size is 25MB, after RAWSIE it is only at 8.1MB!


Importantly, this compression is LOSSLESS!! You can compare the images below to witness it!
