Import Time Estimates 

When you first start using LAMU, you may have tens of thousands of photos to import and might want to know how long it will take to complete the import process.

The speed of photos import can vary significantly depending on the computer you are using. The main factors that affect the import speed include:

⦁ Processor Speed
⦁ Number of Physical CPU Cores
⦁ Size of RAM
⦁ Speed of USB ports
⦁ Speed of Storage Media
⦁ File Size of Photos/Videos

Our experiences show that the import speed range between 200 photos per hour to 2000 photos per hour. For rule of thumb estimates, use 500 photos per hour. Consider letting the import process run overnight if you are importing thousands of photos in one batch.
