Every time I make a change to multiple images (for instance, adding a bunch of images to a new category or renaming a category), PSu pretty much slows to a halt while it synchronizes the changes. I am working with a small number of photos ATM (<2000) and it will take well over 5 minutes (often much more) and heavy computing (as evidenced by my fan whirring) to make each change. I can't do anything until the "Synchronize Service" is complete. This behavior is the same regardless of whether I have "Store metadata to database only" selected or not. I am on a MacBookPro that is less than a year old, running Mojave. It really shouldn't be a limitation of my machine. I am not running any other significant applications at the time

Is this normal behavior?? This just does not seem workable. I can't believe anyone else is experiencing this and is okay with it. Media Pro would do these types of maneuvers in a flash. I have to believe I am doing something really really wrong or have something set wrong.

Anyone have any insight?

Synchronization takes place in a background process and you don’t have to wait for that to finish.
Also, keep all the sync settings at their default (there’s a button to rest all sync settings to default).
Disable auto-sync (the top setting) if you don’t want to sync after changes.

Are your images kept on the same machine or are they stored elsewhere on the LAN, maybe access speed is contributing ?
