Image previews load time

The main reason I used to love Pathfinder was that raw image previews loaded much quicker than in finder and I could skip through them to quickly find the images I wanted. In version 8 they have slowed down to a crawl - about 4 seconds per image to load the preview compared to 1-2 seconds in finder. Also, you now have to wait for the image preview to load before you can view time/date and other metadata as opposed to finder where this happens instantly. Does anyone know if there is a setting I can change to make previews load quicker? Or is this just a significant downgrade with the new version?

    Hi Tom, 

    May I ask you to follow the instruction and check if the issue still persists: 

    1. Delete Path Finder and its traces according to the article:
    2. Download the latest version of the app from our site

    Please note that this will remove your custom preferences of Path Finder. 

    Let me know how it goes. 

    Best Regards,
