  • Haven't had this problem on my new iMac, but thanks for the heads up!
  • Same here.
  • I was having this with the new photos app. And my new camera with 24 megapixel images. I thought it was the app
  • This problem was affecting my 5k, and after several crashes, and several reports to Apple I guess they got the problem fixed. I was having trouble Preview-ing a 21mb JPEG on my desktop, and my computer would crash immediately.
