Keyboard shortcuts are great ways to improve your efficiency when working on post production. Here’s a couple that I use in Lightroom to help improve things so I can get my processing done, and get out and back to shooting that much quicker!
This takes me all the way down the Develop Module to Camera Calibration. If I ever want to make adjustments to which profile to use (typically I use Camera Standard, but it’s always fun to experiment), this gets me there a lot quicker than scrolling with my mouse or tablet!
Yup, that’s it – just the letter R. From the Library Module, this will take you to the Develop Module, turn on the crop tool and show you how you currently have your image cropped for composition. That’s it – one letter, no fuss no muss!
A super slick way to move between modules is to use your Command key (CTRL Key on Windows) and the ALT key along with the number for each module. It’s super easy to remember too:
Library = CMD/CTRL+ALT+1
Develop = CMD/CTRL+ALT+2
Slideshow = CMD/CTRL+ALT+3
Print = CMD/CTRL+ALT+4
Web = CMD/CTRL+ALT+5
