for 5 keyboard shortcuts for Lightroom cc. Okay, the first shortcut
we’re going to do is undo. Now you are going to make mistakes when you’re
editing your photos of course, you’re going to do things that don’t work and
you’ll need to undo them. So if you look at your panel on the left hand side here
of your Lightroom window, you’ve got the history panel here. If it’s not open, just
click that little triangle there. This shows you a list of all the things that
you’ve done to your photo so far, starting from the first thing you did to
the photo at the bottom of the list, all the way up to the top of the list here
is the last thing that you did. So let’s say with this photo of the shells here
I choose to try a Cross Process 3 in the presets over here and I think, “that
looks pretty bad, I don’t want that.” Now the keyboard shortcut for undoing is Control Z
on a PC, Command Z on a Mac will undo the last thing that you did. And if you
keep pressing it of course it will go back one at a time and take off the top
thing off the list. That is the keyboard shortcut for undoing – Control
Z on a PC, Command Z on a Mac. Alright, keyboard shortcut number two. This one is the before and after views of your image. So you’re in your develop
module up here, you’re doing some edits on your photo and you’d like to see what
your image looked like before, and what it looks like now. Just to check that if
you’re heading in the right direction with your editing. So the backslash key
on your keyboard will cycle between before and after views. So that’s what
your image looked like before and you can see up here it says before
so that you know which is which. Before and after….backslash key, that is really handy. Okay, keyboard shortcut number 3. This
one is to get you from your library module into the develop module. So let’s
say you’re in your library here and you’re having a look through your photos
and you think “oh, I might edit that one of these rocks here.” You select it by
clicking on it with your mouse. The keyboard shortcut to take that into the
develop module is D on your keyboard. That will open the develop module and
you can start your editing. Keyboard shortcut number 4. This one is for the zoom function. Let’s say we have a photo, this photo here of these rocks open in
the develop module, and you want to zoom in to check focus or whatever. Now there
are a number of ways of doing this but the keyboard shortcut is Z. That will
zoom in or out…it will cycle between those as you press Z on your keyboard. Of course this will go back to the previous magnification that you were using. So here it’s one-to-one you can see you the list up here of the magnifications. If I’ve been using one-to-two and I press Z, it goes back to one-to-two as
you can see. And it will go back to the same section of the photo. So if I’ve
clicked over here with my mouse and I’ve zoomed in to this area of the photo,
pressing zoom again will zoom back to that same part of the photo. So that’s
kind of handy. Keyboard shortcut for zoom Z. Okay keyboard shortcut number 5. This one relates to the Crop Tool which can be found over here on the right-hand
side of your window there, it’s the little rectangle with the dotted lines
around it. Of course you can click on that, that will bring up your crop tool,
but if you choose to use a keyboard shortcut, the keyboard shortcut for it is
R. So pressing R will bring up your crop tool. This also works from the library
module. If you’re in the library and you’ve got any photo selected, this
one here for example, pressing R on your keyboard will open up the develop module
and the crop tool at the same time. So that’s pretty handy. Crop tool keyboard
shortcut – R. So there you have it, five handy keyboard shortcuts for Lightroom cc. I hope they make your workflow a lot faster. If you know of any more, please
