Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video General Lightroom interface shortcuts, part of Lightroom 2 New Features.
Welcome. Before we dig into the specifics of our training, I want to step back for a moment and I want to go over a few shortcuts in regards the interface, because these shortcuts will be integral to what we'll be doing as we're working on these new features in Lightroom. Alright well, if you'd been using Lightroom for a while, you probably know these shortcuts so feel free to skip this movie and jump ahead. If you're new to Lightroom, here they are. There are number of different shortcuts that will help you minimize the interface. That's one of the wonderful things about Lightroom. The first one is the F5 key. That shows or hides the top of the interface there.
The F6 key. That shows or hides the filmstrip down below. F7, again show or hide the left panels. F8, show or hide the right panels. Now check these out. Tab, show or hide both the left and right panels. Shift+Tab, show or hide everything. Really focus on the image. Shift+Tab again brings that all back and then the final shortcut is the T key and that will show or hide the toolbar. Well I wanted to highlight those shortcuts because I'll be using those in order to focus on a few things that we'll be doing in this training and I hope those are helpful.
Again, it's the F keys, F5, 6, 7, and 8. The Tab key, Shift+Tab, and then finally the T key on the keyboard. If you didn't catch all those, go ahead and press those on your keyboard and you'll learn those shortcuts really quickly.
