I have a whole bunch of panoramas to render on Lightroom. The problem is that when I render one, my PC is dying and I can't really do much with it, much less continue using Lightroom to develop other pictures. I usually end up using my phone to do random stuff while waiting for the panorama to be made, and then I can use Lightroom again. As you can imagine, this is very frustrating.

Is there a way to queue all the panoramas rendering and launch them when it's convenient for me (i.e. when I will not use the computer)?

Note: this question would probably be the same for HDR rendering.

Unfortunately you are not alone with this problem. You can check here and here about discussions/requests for such option. What you can try is to activate graphical processor to help with rendering the panorama. Also you can check those recommendations from Adobe about Lightroom optimization

EDIT: According to this document now is possible to run panoramas/HDR stitch in batch. Probably it is not what you want but at least IMHO is step in right direction


Do them at night, while you are sleeping or at any other time you are not using your computer. use the free Microsoft’s PoweShell to automate the whole process.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I can't do them at night, as I can't queue them. I would have to get up and prepare and launch the next one. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ I use MacOs not windows and in Mac there're ways to do it using readily available tools like keyboard maestro, applescript an d python, in Windows using PowerShell you should be able to create a virtual queue to order Lightroom to fetch a new panorama as soon as the previous is done and written to the disk \$\endgroup\$
