I'm trying to improve Lightroom performance on my Mac and have read that turning off Lens Correction can help the "Loading" times in the develop module.

I really don't care about lens correction and shoot "lomo", so how do I turn off this feature in Lightroom 3?

Lens Correction shouldn't default to being 'on' for your images, unless you have saved a preset that includes Lens Correction On, and you have either applied that preset automatically on import, or subsequently. – Conor Boyd Aug 31 '11 at 3:33

When in Develop, there is a Lens Correction panel. Within this panel you can turn profile lens correction on or off using the Enable Profile Corrections checkbox

Lens correction is off by default - you have to check a box to turn it on for an image, or set of images. This is in the Develop view, under the Lens Corrections panel. The Enable Profile Corrections is the toggle.
