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're going to take a look at how we can reset the different adjustments that we made on our photographs. So here with this photograph, let's go ahead and zoom in a little bit on it by pressing Command+Plus on a Mac, or Control+Plus on Windows. Next, we can see that we have different groups of sliders. We have sliders which allow us to control Color, Tone, and also Presence, which is Clarity, Vibrant, and Saturation. So here I'm going to make just a few minor adjustments. I'll modify my temperature, and my Tint. Then I'll go ahead and modify the Exposure, the Contrast.
I'll change my sliders here, one at a time, simply modifying the overall look and feel of this image by modifying each and every one of these sliders. Well after having done that, I've decided that you know what I don't really like what I've done. Well how can we reset one of these sliders? Well to do that, you can either double-click on the name of the slider, or on the little icon which we used in order to make the adjustment. Let me exaggerate for a moment. Here I'm going to go ahead and modify my Exposure.
I'm going to over-expose the image. This adjustment, it isn't very good. Well, how can we reset that? If we double-click on this little icon, it will take that Exposure back to its default setting. Or -- let me under-expose, just to illustrate this as well -- we can also double-click on that slider name. In doing that, it'll also reset that slider. Well here let's say that we have decided that, you know what? I want to reset each and every tonal adjustment that I've made. Well we could double-click each of these and go through the whole list, or you can double-click the name at the top of the group.
Here we'll double-click the word Tone; that will then reset all of these sliders here. Double-click the word Presence, and it'll reset Clarity, Vibrance, and Saturation, and then the same thing is true up here with White Balance; we can double-click that to set that back to those default settings. And these shortcuts, I find, are really helpful, especially as you're starting to get to work with the Develop module, and as you're experimenting. This type of flexibility gives you some freedom to make adjustments that you're not quite sure about, because you can always double-click that slider, or double-click the name of the adjustment in order to reset it back to the default settings, or of course, as we've seen, you can double-click the name of the entire group in order to reset the entire group of adjustments.
