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.
Now that we know a little bit about how we can make adjustments, and also how we can reset some of our sliders. What I want to do here is focus in on how we can walk through the different panels, how we can make adjustments, and how we can reset those adjustments, and also how we can reset the image all the way back to its default settings. In one of the previous movies, we made some adjustments to this photograph here in the Basic panel. Next what I want to do is I want to add a little bit of a vignette, so I want go all the way down to the Effects panel.
Well to do that by way of a shortcut, you're going to press Command on the Mac, Control on Windows, and you're going to start tapping on your numbers key. You may try Command+6 or Control+6. Well that got us to there Lens Corrections panel; I was just one off. Well, to get down to the Effects panel, or to kind of walk down to that, just hold down Command on the Mac, Control on Windows, then press the 7 key to get to the Effects panel. Well with this panel, I want to go ahead and add a brightening effect around the borders or edges of this photograph. Next I've decided that I want to add some Split Toning to this image, so let's go ahead and walk backwards to the Split Toning panel.
One way to do that, to kind of learn these different shortcuts, is to hold down Command on a Mac, or Control on Windows, and then to remember that you started with Command+7 or Control+7 for Effects. Well then we could try 6, and then 5, and then eventually 4 in order to get to Split Toning. Again, that's Command+4 or Control+4, and that takes us to the Split Toning panel. Here I want to add some yellows to the Highlights; I also want to add some blue tones to the Shadows. Well, in making those adjustments, I realized they just don't look good at all.
Well how can I reset these controls? Well, as we have seen previously, what we can do is we can double-click one of the sliders, or the slider name, in order to reset that slider, or to reset a group of sliders, like let's say the Shadows here, we can just double-click on this word Shadows, and it'll reset or remove the Split Toning effect there in the Shadows. All right, well that's great; we can modify these controls one at a time, or as groups, as we've seen in the Basic panel, but let's say that we've decided that we want to reset the image all the way back to its default settings.
We want to remove each and every adjustment that we've made. We'll do that on a Mac, press Shift+Command+R; on Windows, press Shift+Control+R. What that will do is it will reset all of the adjustments that you've made in any and every panel. So just to reiterate that shortcut -- you'll want to write that one down -- it's Shift+Command+R on a Mac, or Shift+Control+R on Windows; that allows you to reset your photograph to its default settings.
