Shortcuts You Can’t Live Without: Lightroom Library Module

In Uncategorized on November 6, 2008 at 6:39 pm

From my experience teaching, I know that some folks love shortcuts and others much prefer to use menus. But even if you are in the second group, you will find that learning and using just a handful or so of the most important shortcuts will really speed up your Lightroom experience. I dare say, you will not go back!

G takes you to the Library Grid view

E takes you to the Library Loupe view

D takes you to the Develop Module

Tab hides and reveals your left and right panels

Shift-Tab hides and reveals both the panels and filmstrip

\ hides and reveals the filter bar at the top.

0-5 assign 0 to 5 stars to your image.

6-9 assign colors to your image.

B assigns the selected image to the Quick Collection

If you are really into shortcuts, in Lightroom go to Help>Library Module Shortcuts to see a list of many more.
