We don’t need no stinkin’ badges
Ok, so I really wanted to use that line, but it is one of the new things that has been improved in Lightroom with the CC update.
Often when trying to click on an image either in the Grid mode of the Library or in the Filmstrip I will click on the badge of the image. Especially the little crop badge that lets me know that the image has been cropped. When I do that, it immediately opens up the image in crop mode and that is usually not where I want to go… so I have to close the crop by hitting done. Not a big deal, but it is all about being as efficient as possible and this little tip could get lost amongst HDR and the Brush upgrades.
Go to your Preferences in the top left corner and under the Interface tab and choose Ignore clicks on badges.
Now you won’t accidentally open up in the crop mode. Not really a big game changer, but a nice little tweak.
Pete – Will this also help prevent the inadvertent flagging/unflagging of individual photos in the library grid? Can’t stand when that happens.
Can you address an image rotation problem I am having? When I rotate an image to portrait view it seems to go back into landscape view and I have to do it again. Any ideas?
What about the bug that still persists in LR 6, where you hit the “d” key from the library to go into develop mode, and the photo automatically opens into crop mode for no damn reason? (then you angrily hit the “r” key to exit crop mode. Because you utilize keyboard shortcuts; like a gentlemen.)
Thank you, thank you, thank you. This has been driving me nuts for so long. I didn’t realise that there was a way to stop this. Thank you.
Very nice tip.
Please get rid of the annoying Creative Cloud Complete popup that interrupts reading the posts.
Cool tip. Thanks

Love the show. I have seen every one. I really hope you continue it. Love the lengths.
Thanks for the tip – Perfect. I knew there had to be a way to fix that little issue.
