One of My “Most Used” Lightroom Classic Shortcuts
It’s a really easy, but a really helpful one, too. It’s how to see an instant side-by-side before and after of your image. Like you see above. The shortcut? The letter “y.” That’s it. Y gets you into that side-by-side and pressing Y one more time returns you to your normal view. Hope you found that helpful.
Next Wednesday night — an Evening with Joe McNally
We are thrilled to announce a special after hours event at next week’s Photoshop World Conference – “An Evening with @JoeMcNallyPhoto” where Joe will share his insights and experiences photographing the Tokyo Olympics. It. Will. Be. Amazing! http://Photoshopworld.com
I took the Platinum Award in Travel Photography at the Muse International Awards
The whole story (and my shot that won) is over on my daily blog at scottkelby.com
Thanks for stopping by, everybody. Looking forward to seeing a whole bunch of you next week at Photoshop World on the Lightroom Training Track! Have a great weekend!
Strange. The letter Y does nothing in my Lightroom Classic. What could I be doing wrong?
OK. I get it now. It’s not the letter Y on the keyboard. It’s the Y in the tool bar on the bottom. It’s the letter C on the keyboard. Could have been explained better.
Still fooling around with this. I found out that you must be in the Develop Screen to do this. More info that could have been included in the post.
C in library mode isn’t the same thing as Y in develop.
C compares 2 photos
Y displays before and after of edits of the same image.
Hope that helps.
Thanks. Yes you are right. I found that out. I love people that leave information out of their instructions. I think software instruction are famous for that. Driving instructions sometimes are also famous for that. These instruction while good could have at least also said you must be in Develop also.
I’m an old man. I never complain about free help, complete or incomplete. If it gets you part way there vs never having a hint that something is possible – it’s a win 🙂
Congratulation on your Muse Platinum Award!! Beautiful photo! Have a Great time at Photoshop World!! Sounds like it’s going to be Fantastic!! Well, you be sending out updates for those of us that can’t attend?
Hey Dennis, Just so you know, paid attendees to Photoshop World get access to the recordings for all sessions for 1 year after PSW is over, so if you can’t make it for the live portions you can still catch all of the sessions at your own pace and schedule. Keep that in mind.
