The Joy and Wonder that is “Lights Out” Cropping

Hi gang – it’s Tuesday and time for Benjamin Warde’s “Lightroom Coffee Break” and this one is on using two features together to make cropping just so awesome (a perfect follow-up to my cropping tips post last week).

Hope you found that helpful. 🙂

Have a great Tuesday everybody, and check back tomorrow for another Custom Print Layout and free downloadable template.

  2. Works only if you are not working on a second monitor and have Lightroom open on that second monitor. Then the L just turns the second screen to black.

    • Mmm…my “L” key affects both monitors equally. Perhaps there is a setting for that somewhere. In any case, I find the F11 key indispensable for dual monitor work-instantly frees up that second monitor without minimizing The main Lightroom window.
