Hi I'm sure I saw someone demo how to move the filmstrip,which is horizontal by default, to a vertical position. Wide screens mean you have lots of width but not so much height. How on earth do you do this? Rgs Andrew

Is this a Lightroom Classic question?

 

I haven't seen such a thing. As far as I know, the positions of the panel in Lightroom Classic are not movable (you can make some of the panels wider or narrower, but you can't move them)

Hi DJ thanks for prompt response. Yes LR Classic question. I can find nothing on the internet but I'm sure I saw it with my own eyes on a LR tutorial eg Anthony Morganti or similar 🙂

I think this may refer to the Adobe Camera Raw interface. That used to have a vertical-scrolling area on the left side only, then an update moved this down and made it horizontal-scrolling similar to LrClassic's fimstrip.

 

An option is available in ACR settings, to revert to the vertical location at the left side. But AFAIK there is no way to arrange things that way in LrClassic.

Or you where looking at Bridge where you can move sections around and then save a workspace.

The filmstrip can be switched to vertical in Camera Raw, but that isn't an option in Lightroom.

PLS WHY ISNT THIS POSSIBLE

It's so annoying on a 21:9 screen to have huge grey empty areas but the filmstrip down below is taking up valuable space!

There are lots of flexibility in the LrC Display you can collapse, top, bottom, left an right panels. When they are collapsed and you hover over the triangle to display or click to expand.

LrC is an Alternative to Bridge / Camera Raw trying to get one to function like the other will only lead to frustration, make a choice.

You can't, but there is an alternative that works quite nicely, especially on an ultrawide screen. First, make you main Lightroom window smaller than the screen. Leave a 'gap' on the right side. It means you need to drop out of any type of semi-full screen mode. Next, activate the 'Secondary Screen'. Most people think this option is limited to two real screens only, but it is not. You can open it as a window and place it anywhere you like, even on the main screen and even if you only have one screen. Obviously the secondary screen should also not be set to full screen mode to make this work. So resize the secondary screen window to fit the gap that you left open on the right of your main window. Now you have a 'multi-row film strip' on the right side.

It's a feature in CaptureOne, which is why Adobe won't implement it in Lightroom.
