Lightroom: Using the Sliders
Everybody knows that you can use the mouse to control the various sliders in Lightroom. Often, I find that using the keyboard is “better.” If I have the choice, most of the times, I will prefer the keyboard over the mouse.
- I have a better control by typing a value, then using the ⇑ or the ⇓ keys. Yes, this is the best control but it can be very slow.
- Press the
Shiftkey and the ⇑ or the
Shiftkey and the ⇓ accelerates the scrolling of the values to slightly slower than moving the slider with the mouse while still maintaining the control over the slider.
- Double clicking on the word of the slider will reset the value of the slider to 0.
- Pressing the Alt/Option change the Tone and Presence section to: Reset Tone and Reset Presence. Clicking on the Reset Tone and Reset Presence will reset all the sliders of that section to 0.
- Enlarging the right panel, by clicking and dragging of the left edge, will give the mouse movement a better precision/control. It's especially useful with the all the new HD screen formats.
