hello cazillions!
i have a question about using lightroom on win7: what is different when using the 64bit version? is the processing actually faster, better?

i don't have any troubles processing my RAW files, the whole precedure can take quite a bit of time though. So, do you think an upgrade to 64bit windows would resolve this issue?

the camera used is mainly a D7000 and sometimes a D90.
computer is quad-core (2 gigs of RAM -> for sure the bottleneck part of the thing..)

any advice? thanks for your help!! B)

Extended answer coming in Keep Shooting! Mondays Q&A segment. Bottom line is it depends...

1. Does your computer support more than 4gb of ram?
2. Do you want to spend the time to reformat a 32 bit install of Win7?
3. Have you tried other upgrades such as an external hard drive for your photos?
4. How many images are in your catalog?
