Ignition 8.0.12 Designer Black Screens following dbl-clk on image [image component]

After upgrading from 7.9.13 to 8.0.12, when attempting to open the [image component] by double clicking on an existing image, screen freezes then turns black recovery takes around 5 minutes. I can open the image management via tools menu and while slow to respond, typically takes 1 minute or so, however double-clicking on an image locks the designer for several minutes. Creating unwanted delays in our development process. Any suggestions would be helpful.
