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.
Here we are going to take a look at how we can make selections of typography, or of images. I'm working with the cover, and what I want to do is I want to select all of the text cells in order to change the color, or the font that we have here. In order to do that, we can use a handy shortcut. On a Mac, press Command+Option+A; on Windows, press Control+Alt+A. Next, we could go ahead and make a change. For example, let's say that we want all of the copy to be black. Here I'll click into the color chip, and then I'll make that change. If we want to undo that change, you can just press Command+Z or Control+Z multiple times in order to step backwards, in order to undo those changes.
Next, let's move to a new spread. Here, to do that, we'll press the right arrow key until we come to a spread where we have a couple of images. Now I want to show you a shortcut that you can use in order to select all of the photos that you have on a page. In this case, the shortcut is Shift+Option+Command+A on a Mac, or Shift+Alt+Control+A on Windows. Here, you can see that we've selected all of these photos. Well, what I want to do with these photos is I want to click on one, and then change the zoom. Because both photos are selected, I'll go ahead and click and drag, and you can see how we can change the zoom of these photos.
We can also click and move these around in order to change the layout, and customize this. In this way, many times we can make changes more quickly. If ever you want to undo changes like this, well, just click off, and then press Command+Z or Control+Z multiple times in order to step back through these changes that you've made, in order to bring the photographs back to the way that they were originally.
