Cool Little Tip For Lightroom’s Radial Filter

This is one of those tips you might not use everyday, but when you need it, it’s really quick and handy.

Get the Radial filter; hold the Command key on Mac (Ctrl-key on PC), and double-click anywhere within the image and it creates as large an oval as possible (as seen above) for you automatically.

There ya go – short and sweet, and we’re starting out this week with a shortcut most Lightroom users don’t know, but know you do! 🙂

Here’s to a kick-butt week, full of opportunities and good health!


P.S. We’re just a few weeks from the all-online two-day, two-track Portrait Photography Conference. More into right here.

    Cool tip, thanks Scott! Sometimes it seems as though the designers must have built hundreds of such little gems into LR, and we’ve discovered only a fraction of them.
