Tip – Quickly Changing Folders in Develop

Happy Friday everyone. Here’s a quick tip. If you’re developing your photos and you want to quickly switch to another folder or collection, I’ve seen a lot of people go back to the Library module to select it. They then click the folder or collection, then find the photo, then go back into the Develop module. That’s a huge pain, right? Well, below the toolbar but above the Filmstrip (at the bottom) is a small filter area. In this area is a path that shows you what folder and photos you’re looking at. Next to it, on the right, is a small down-facing arrow. If you click on it you’ll see a list of recent folders and collections that you’ve viewed. Click here to see a graphic of what I’m talking about. Then just choose the folder or collection you want to jump to and Lightroom will take you there without leaving the Develop module. Pretty nifty huh?

Well, I hope you have a great weekend. My wife is at an out-of-town wedding this weekend so I’m Mr. Mom for 3 days. I hope my kids are ready for delivery pizza, microwaved chicken nuggets, and ice cream all weekend cause that’s about the best I can do 🙂 See ya!
