I use Olympus raws (.ORG) and I have similar problem too (my CPU is more
than 5 years old, 1.5ghz celeron M). But I have an idea for solution. In
the time, that the user is watching photo (and shotwell does not do
anything) shotwell should preload next and previous photos (maybe more
that one), so the the switching between photos will be instant if you
spend some time looking/editing the photo. This feature will be also
usefull, if you want to show your pictures to friends, when waiting a
few second is not really acceptable.

When flipping between images (using arrow keys) is typically takes 3-6 seconds from key press until the next image appears. In the mean time there is no visual clue that the application is reacting to the command, which is confusing. Would it be possible to add a visual clue (e.g. turn mouse pointer into hourglass or similar)?
