Get to Grid View, Fast!

I use this one nearly every time I’m in Lightroom and it’s become so ingrained in my head that I forget about it sometimes. Often you’ll be working with either a) a zoomed in view of a photo b) a photo in the Devlop module c) a slide or d) something in the Print module. Well if you want a quick way to get back to your Library module in grid view just press the G key. I’m tellin ya’ – it’ll...

Tinting Black and White

If you find yourself working with the Split Toning panel often you’ll love this one. When moving either Hue slider under Highlights or Shadows try holding down the Alt key (Option on Mac) when dragging the slider.
