Friday Tip – Keyboard Shortcut

Every once in a while I come across a keyboard shortcut that really speeds things up for me in Lightroom. Today this shortcut deals with the Crop tool. You probably already know that you can lock your aspect ratio when you’re cropping by clicking on the little Lock icon in Crop mode. However, you can just press the letter A to turn the lock and and off. Small I know but hey… it’s my website right?! I have to say that this little shortcut really makes it easier for me to use the Crop tool. Have a great weekend!
