Hi there! I'm new to Lightroom and I started having an annoying problem a while ago. I tried the help of photo.stackexchange but they couldn't find a solution. Can you help me? For example images and the workarounds tried so far, please check the original post here.
I'm using Adobe Lightroom 3.0. I go to develop mode and everything is fine (the photo is sharp). After I do any change (saturation, fill light, sharpness... whatever) the photo automatically gets pixelated. In other words, the photo turns into what seems to be a thumbnail enlarged too much — you know the look.
I found that when I zoom in, Lightroom displays "Loading..." and then the photo is once again sharp and in 1:1. I then zoom out, and the photo now displays correctly once again. But if I do any other change, the problem will be repeated.
What's wrong? Anyone have the same problem? I couldn't find a solution anywhere.
My system: Core 2 Duo @2.33GHz, 2GB ram, Geforce 8800GTS, 7200rpm hdd.
