I use keyboard shortcuts all the time in Lightroom to help speed up my workflow and get the most out of the program. In this video I share 5 of my favourite keyboard shortcuts that I use whenever I’m using Lightroom.

My 5 must know keyboard shortcuts:

1. “F” Key – Fullscreen Mode

2. “L” Key – Lights Out Mode

3. “P” Key – Pick Flag | “X” Key – Reject Flag

Bonus: “Cmd + Del” / “Ctrl + Del” on Windows – Delete rejected images

4. “Opt + Click & Drag” / “Alt + Click & Drag” on Windows – (In Develop Module) Visualise the Masking slider in the Sharpening Panel

5. “Double click slider title” –(In Develop Module) Resets that slider to its default


6. “\” Key – (In Develop Module) Before & After preview
