Here is a quick tip for you to make your workflow just a touch easier.
When you are in the Develop Module if you find yourself scrolling through the panels a lot, you might want to try going solo.
Right Click on any of the panels tabs such as Basic and choose Solo Mode from the drop down menu.
Now when you click on any panel, all the other panels will be shut so that you will do less scrolling and more editing. A simple tip but one that makes a lot of folks happy when they realize how much scrolling they usually do. Oh, and while you are at itâ€¦ when that menu to turn on Solo Mode is showing, go ahead and uncheck any panels that you almost never useâ€¦ for instance Split toningâ€¦ it is a good panel but I only use it on occasion. Unchecking it will make it disappear and I can always pull up the menu and check it to bring it back.
It doesnâ€™t seem like much, but any parts that you can streamline make incremental differences in your timeâ€¦ so try it and see if fits your workflow.
I would like to ad a tip to the solo mode tip. Once you have LR set to solo mode in the Develop Module, you can then use keyboard shortcuts to get through those panels even quicker.
Command+1 for the Basic Panel
Command+2 for the Tone Curve Panel
Command+3 for the HSL Panel
Command+4 for the Split Toning Panel
Command+5 for the Detail Panel
And so on. You get the picture. Very helpful, I use it everyday in my LR workflow
Awesome! That is one of those magic tricks that will make scrolling almost non-existent for me. There are some panels I seldom or never use. I’ll uncheck them. Thanks for the tip!
