I'm trying to add images stored offline on DVD's to a catalog, it's incredibly slow.  I do have it set to high quality/ large previews in in "Thumbnails & Previews".  Create full screen previews is also checked.  I just added 8 images that the media was a little under 4 G, it took 8 minutes.  I  was importing by selecting files & folders.  Is it slow because our files are so large or because we are building large previews?  I'm comparing EM2 to Extensis Portfolio and Lightroom which import from DVD's much faster.

Another issue I have is EM2 not being able to export to email for files stored offline but I guess that's just a limitation for now.

For EM to make the thumbnail, it needs to open the entire file, do that can take a while.

How does the time compare to opening those same files?
