Slow rendering on macOS Mojave

Last Updated -

Some Photo Mechanic 6 users on macOS Mojave (OS version 10.14) have noticed a problem with images rendering slowly. Our developers are working on a solution, but we do not have a timeline for when a fix will be released. Meanwhile, we do have temporary workarounds until we resolve the issue:
  • If you have upgraded from Photo Mechanic 5, you can keep using version 5. The Mojave-related issue is only affecting Photo Mechanic 6. 
  • Turn off the “Always make current Preview visible in Contact Sheet” checkbox in the Preview section of the Preferences dialog.
  • If you are running Photo Mechanic 6, change your monitor's color profile to Generic RGB when using Photo Mechanic. You can switch your profile back to your preferred setting when using other software. If you have two displays, only the monitor running Photo Mechanic needs to use the Generic RGB profile. 



If you have not yet purchased Photo Mechanic 6, we recommend that you take advantage of the free 30-day trial to make sure it works well on your system.
