Quick workflow tip

I like to have as much room for images in my Lightroom panels, and so I will hide my side panels, but sometimes you want to jump from one folder to another in either the Library or Develop module. You can easily do that if you have the Filmstrip open at the bottom. Simple Right-click on the black bar of the Filmstrip to bring up a new menu that has a list of your recent folders amongst other things.


Right click brings up more options menu

Now the key is to click on the black bar, not the dark gray one just above it. That won’t do anything for you.


Remember black bar will go far… gray bar will not. Ok, that was a terrible rhyme… but now you may remember it. 😀

When the menu comes up, just click on the folder you want and it will open that one up for you lickety split. 😀


while you have that menu up, you can check out a few other options.

  1. I see that you are a “photoshop guy” with Kelby. Is there a photoshopkillertips.com or something like it? Is there one for any other Adobe products like Premiere?
