Imports are fast for me until I get past about 10,000 images in the session. At 12,000 images it gets impossibly slow. It seems to be non-linear. The load time grows faster that the number of images. I usually copy from the camera card to SSD storage and load from there so as not to tie up fast camera cards. Loading the first 8000 images into a session from the SSD takes a few minutes. Loading another 8000 images after I have already loaded 12000 images into a session takes about 14 hours. To avoid the slowness I am now in the habit of capping my sessions at 10,000 images which is about a half-day shoot for me. I'd prefer the session to be the full day. Is there anything else I can do?
