Hiding Your Panels
One of the things that Lightroom excels at is bringing your photos to you. There are no palettes in front of your photos and there are no windows to move around. It makes it really simple to see what you’re working on. If you want to take it a step further and REALLY hide the panels that appear on the left and right side, all you have to do is press the Tab key and they’ll go away. Now if you move your cursor over to either side, they’ll temporarily pop back into view. If you press Shift + Tab, the panels on the side as well as the filmstrip on the bottom will be hidden. Just press Tab or Shift + Tab again to get things back to normal. What can I say – you gotta love Lightroom and how it makes working with your photos easier.
