Moving Through Your Image in Lightroom While Zoomed In — Page Down

In Uncategorized on August 12, 2009 at 10:07 am

If you plan to print your image, I recommend that you do all of your clean up work zoomed into 1:1.   You should also review all of your local adjustments at this zoom ratio to make sure that your edges aren’t obvious.    Here’s an easy way to move through your image while you are zoomed in so that you don’t miss any of it:

–  Zoom into 1:1  (by clicking on 1:1 in the navigator panel or Ctl/Cmd + twice)

– Press  the Home button on your keyboard to move to the top left corner of your image.

– Hit Page Down on your keyboard to move through the image one frame at a time.   The first time you do this, watch in the Navigator panel how the rectangle (viewing area) moves:  first down, and then to the right from the top down again.  Page Up takes you in the opposite direction.  End takes you to the bottom left corner.

  1. Great idea especially when checking spots or flaws in pictures.

    I love all your LR2 tips. Any idea when LR3 will come out?

    • Hi Keith, I don’t know when LR3 will be out, but I think LR2 came out in Aug of ’08. I f Adobe follows their typical 18+ month cycle (that I have seen with PS), that would put it into 2010.

  2. Also, if using a Mac Book Pro you must use the “fn” key to move down, as the up/down arrows do not work.
