  2. Matt, thanks so much for this tip, I too was wondering how to get those filter items back. Also, I have a suggestion for a topic that I would ask you to consider doing a video on. I run on a Mac and I love iPhoto for how it integrates to the iPhone and to many mac applications. Please consider doing a video on integrating iPhoto with Lightroom. I know the video would only address part of your audience so I understand if you don’t want to go there.

  5. Matt, I’ve been wondering about this forever, thanks for the tip. Oh, also please don’t apologize for being “lazy” when you create a video. I for one prefer vlog posts over standard written blog posts anyway. You could go 100% video for all I care!

  8. Matt: This is a great tip! I have been using the drop-down menu next to the word all this time. I had no idea I could simply click the word to have all of the filters pop back up. Very Handy.
