Video Tip – The Missing Filter Options

I decided to record a video for today’s tip because a) I started to write it out and realized it was a very difficult to put this one into words without lots of screen captures and, b) I’m lazy and a video was much easier. Enjoy and have a great weekend.

    Matt, thanks so much for this tip, I too was wondering how to get those filter items back. Also, I have a suggestion for a topic that I would ask you to consider doing a video on. I run on a Mac and I love iPhoto for how it integrates to the iPhone and to many mac applications. Please consider doing a video on integrating iPhoto with Lightroom. I know the video would only address part of your audience so I understand if you don’t want to go there.

    Matt, I’ve been wondering about this forever, thanks for the tip. Oh, also please don’t apologize for being “lazy” when you create a video. I for one prefer vlog posts over standard written blog posts anyway. You could go 100% video for all I care!

    Matt: This is a great tip! I have been using the drop-down menu next to the word all this time. I had no idea I could simply click the word to have all of the filters pop back up. Very Handy.

    Hi Matt,

    Sorry for an offtopic. Please, could you make a video about “Compare mode”? I have to compare hundreds of photos in develop mode jumping from one foto to neighbor.

    Thanks a lot.
