Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video The Library module view modes, part of Lightroom 2 New Features.
You know one of the things that makes Lightroom such an amazing application is it helps you access and organize your files in such a unique way. You're going to do a lot of your organizational work in the Library module, and that's where we are right now. Before we get into the Library module, I want to talk about it just a little bit. Right now I'm in the Loupe View mode. Now you can toggle between the two different view modes in the Library module, which are the Loupe View and the Grid view, by way of shortcut. The shortcut for the Grid view is the G key, the shortcut to access the Loupe View is the E key.
Of course, you can also click on these icons down here in the toolbar. That will take me to the Grid View mode and this'll take me to the Loupe View mode. Now one of things that I notice when I go to the Grid View mode is that the interface has changed, and it's changed for the better. Previously the filters were located in the panels, well those have migrated to the top of the Grid View mode inside our Library. We're going to dig into those filters in the next movie.
