2.8.2 Export very slow compared to 2.6
I frequently export large TIF images (144 megapixel) and "unfortunately" just upgraded to 2.8.2. I find that the export window takes longer to appear and when exporting to JPG the JPG options window takes at times a minute or longer to open.

Since I did not have this problem in 2.6 I wonder if there is a bug in the export or if there is a setting to speed this up.

I had the same sort of problem with 2.8 running real slow, though it was for different reasons than the ones you state.

If you're using Windows then the link below may provide a fix.

That doesn't fix the problem. I believe this issue is completely unrelated to the 2.8.0 Color Management filter bug.

Opening a 5.7 MB JPG photo and, without editing the image, exporting back to JPG takes 2 minutes. Microsoft Paint takes takes about 5 seconds.

Opening a 5.7 MB JPG photo and, without editing the image, exporting as PNG takes 14 minutes!!! Microsoft Paint takes about 15 seconds.

Honestly, it takes me longer to save and close the file than to make the edits. That's ridiculous.
