Another Awesome Lightroom Shortcut (this one, from one of our readers)

I straight up didn’t know this one. Even if I did know it at one point, I sure didn’t recall it, and it’s awesome, and I did a video about it, with credit to CallMeBob โ€” who knows a ton about Lightroom and often shares with us here on the blog, so thank you again “Bob” (or Lyle, or ya know, whomever). ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bob for the win! (thanks, CallMeBob)

Tons of news over on my daily blog today

Lots of stuff to share over there. Here’s the link if you’ve got a sec.

I finally got my shots from Tokyo posted

Here’s that link – hope you can check them out.

Have a rockin’ weekend everybody (I’m working on finishing up “I hate myself for loving you” by Joan Jett in my home studio this weekend).

  2. I didn’t even know there was an auto mask feature so, I’m twice mind blown right now…
    Thanks for the tips!

  3. I am HONORED to have either advanced, inspired or reminded your eminence in some small way.
    And yes, it’s Lyle – my original name got blocked once so I shifted to “callmebob” in reference of the movie “What About Bob”… which is not autobiographical… Have been traveling in BC/AB and just seeing this tutorial including the tip – it’s a good time saver…

  4. Also note that it also works in the opposite way, too. If Auto Mask is enabled, depressing the Command key temporarily turns it off.

  5. A related shortcut, while in the LR Adjustment Brush, the letter A acts as a toggle to turn on or off the Auto Mask feature.
