MMiller Posted June 22, 2015 Share Posted June 22, 2015 Just got the latest and best! Imac 27 inch 3.4 Ghz, retina display monitor and 24 G of ram! Cost a small fortune, but the ease and efficiency should pay off in the long run. But now, I am comparing the newest imac system with my old, archaic Vista pc- both running simultaneously. I have DPP running in both, the much older version in the pc, and the last upgrade running on the Imac. My pc monitor blew out btw, so just to get it going again, I bought an old monitor in a yard sale for just one dollar, Works great. I want to see how much faster I can work with image processing in Imac. I plan on getting the Creative Cloud later but first for now, I'll use DPP. Results: The ancient pc dinosaur is so much faster! Why is that? The image files are the same, I sized the images on the viewing screen to the same size, all variables seem to be the same. Yet, DPP adjustments on the Imac are so much slower. Move the adjustment sliders and there is a frustrating several second delay to see the results on the final image. You think you got the image perfect, but then later as the adjustment results arrive, you realize you don't. Becomes a guessing game. Whereas with the ancient, supposedly sluggish PC, the adjustment results come instantly and seamlessly, smooth all the way with no guessing. So am I missing something, need to tweak something, or is this an expected characteristic of Imac? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
