I spend most of my time in the
Grid view. Lightroom has so many keys, it’s crazy and overwhelming, but there are some that I find extremely useful. And yes, I decide what’s useful or not. Here are a few:
- G will get you to the
Gridview from anywhere in Lightroom.
- I like to set the Auto Advance on, Lightroom will move to the next photo when I flag the photo. It’s done through:
- + to increase the size of thumbnails.
- - to decrease the size of thumbnails.
- Z to zoom in on the selected photo. Release the Z key to return to the
- J to cycle through the
- F for the full screen mode to view more photos. Press F again to exit the full screen mode.
- Shift+Tab to hide all panels to view more photos. Shift-Tab to re-display the panels.
- T to hide the Toolbar to view more photos. T to re-display the Toolbar.
- \ , the backslash, to hide the Library Filter to view more photos. The \ to re-display the Library filter.
I review the photos in the Library > Grid mode > Fit. Here are the 2 keys I use the most:
- P for pick, the photos with potential.
- X for reject, the photos that are off, out of focus, bad…
- U for removing a flag. I said 2 keys and list 3 keys. I use the U when I change my mind and want to remove the flag P or X.
- Ctrl-Z or Cmd-Z to undo what I just did.
