This course enables you to harness the diverse features in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom literally at the touch of a button. Photographer and teacher Chris Orwig shares the keyboard shortcuts that make working with the modules in Lightroom more intuitive and efficient, including ways to navigate the interface, minimizing, maximizing, and zooming panels and images as you go, as well as methods for importing images. Chris also demonstrates shortcuts for organizing images with labels, stars, flags, and collections; editing image metadata; working with video; and making a wide range of image adjustments. The course provides photo editors with a whole new way to extend their reach in Lightroom: by bringing their toolset closer to the workbench.
After having added a flag, star, or label to our photographs and media files, next we want to take a look at how we can enable filtering, so that we can separate those photographs which are keepers from those which aren't. So here in the Library module, we'll press the backslash key; that's the slash which leans to the left, and in pressing that, that will open up our Library Filter options. Next I'll click on the Attribute tab. Underneath the Attribute tab, we can filter or sort our images based on their flag, star, or color label.
In this case, what I want to do is I want to see the images which have a 3 star or greater rating. Here we can click on this icon, and it will show us these four photographs that have a rating which is 3 stars or higher. Next, I also want to add some more criteria to the filtering. I want to see which images out of these also have a red label. To add that to the criteria of our filtering, we can simply click on this icon here. Now you can see that we have this one photo selected which meets both of these criteria.
To remove any option here, just click on it, and here you can see how we can remove the criteria for this filtering. We can also access this filtering down below. Here I can click on the criteria, say, for a 3 stars, and in doing that, you can see, again, I have these four images. Down below, you'll notice that you have this little switch. Well, this toggle switch allows us to turn Filtering on and off, and there is a great shortcut that we can use rather than having to click on this switch.
The shortcut is to press Command on the Mac, or Control on Windows, then the L key; think L for the Library filters. So go ahead and press Command+L or Control +L and here you can see, we can toggle off the Library filtering, or press Command+L or Control+L again, and then we can toggle back on whatever Library filtering criteria we've used most recently.
