The Ultimate Lightroom Keyboard Shortcut Tool
Over on GitHub (a popular place for sharing code, and projects), just posted a web-based Lightroom Shortcut app. I have to say it’s pretty cool as a learning tool. Basically, you can load up any module in Lightroom, set your keyboard style (Mac, PC), and it’ll show you exactly what keys are used for each feature.
Plus, it even has a Search feature at the bottom which works really well. I typed in the word “Pick” and it came up with any place the word “pick” was used as a shortcut in Lightroom. Heck, I even learned a keyboard shortcut I didn’t know while doing it.
Another feature I stumbled on while trying to take a screen capture is that if you press a modifier key (like Command, Control, Shift, etc…), the keyboard automatically changes to show you what keys do with that modifier key selected. Very cool stuff!
Anyway, it’s free. It’s web-based so you don’t have to install anything on your computer. You could even take a screen capture of it and print it out if you wanted a more visual reference while you had Lightroom open. Here’s the link to the website if you want to check it out. Have a great Thursday!
PS: If you’re in to landscape photography, over on my personal blog yesterday, I posted a Story and some photos behind my trip in to Oneonta Gorge (just outside of Portland, Oregon) yesterday. Stop on by if you’d like to see some photos and read about the trip 🙂
Thanks matt for sharing lightroom keyboard shortcut, Its really helpful for me
Definitely it would be great for all professional photographers.
This is a very useful tip for photographers like us. Since I work for a wedding photography services company CamYogi, I have to use Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Lightroom for editing.
Really a very good tips, I usually go through literally thousands of shots in a single sitting. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for sharing this information. It saves a lot of time for photographers like us.
Really a very good tip I heard about the light room before but not this much and am sure this time am gonna try implementing it in my website.
It would be great if the images are in high resolution anyhow this is an amazing one. Thanks, Matt and Waldo.

I just wanted to say thanks for sharing this. Keyboard shortcuts can make such a difference in speeding up your workflow!
Very cool! Thanks Matt and Waldo.
Very cool indeed! A great resource indeed – I usually go through literally thousands of shots in a single sitting. Thanks for sharing!
guess I’m not catching it…..don’t see anyway to download anything, or a way to save a capture as a jpeg…..just how is this used other than a screen capture and print it out….thanks.
Jim. You could:
1) Use it on your computer as a reference.
2) Take a screen capture and print it out as a reference.
I also found it a little hard to read. But free is good. What I did was go full screen in your browser and then enlarge the screen as big as I could and still see the keyboard. I then took a screen shot. I imported it in to Lightroom (per Matt suggestion) and then if you just increase the clarity it will give you better contrast. I also played around in Photoshop re-creating the modifier key with black keys with white text but I thing the Lightroom tip will help. What a great learning tool for beginners, there’s nothing better than learning some of the keyboard shortcuts to speed up your workflow. Great post, and very useful.
Matt, I am having a problem with printing in LR5 and Epson 3880 and am unable to find a solution. Any chance you could help me out? Joe
I’ll try 🙂 What’s the problem?
Printouts come out very light, and difficult to read.
I know a program called Photoshop/Lightroom that can darken it 🙂
