Please can someone give me a short cut to quickly re edit an image that is in the book already? How do you instantly switch to the Develop Module to add more edits. I'd also like to be able to switch back to the library module so that I can swap the image out for a similar photo.
Switching Modules is done with keyboard shortcuts, Letters. g to go to Grid View, e to go to the Loupe view, d to go to Develop.
Or use Ctrl + Alt + numbers 1 > 7.
I wish that were working for me. When in the Book Module with an image highlighted, pressing D does not take you to that photo in the Develop Module. The error message 'no photo selected' comes up. Please can you check this in
Yes, certain and just checked. Make sure you are selecting the photo rather than the page. You can be sure the photo is selected if you look in the filmstrip where you'll see that its thumbnail becomes more highlighted.
Thanks so much 'D' now seems to be taking me directly into the Develop Module. Do you happen to know if there's a short cut to get the an image up within folders from the Book Module. This would assist if one needed to ring in another image.
Select the image and hit D for Develop.
Pressing G or D when in the Book Module is simply not working. Is this is shortcoming of LR or am I doing something wrong?
As I said, ensure that a photo is selected - confirm this by looking in the filmstrip.
If I press G should this bring the image up in the folder within the Library Module?
"If I press G should this bring the image up in the folder within the Library Module?"
1) If you have created a "Saved Book Collection" -[G] shows you a Grid View of the Saved Book Collection.
2) If you have NOT yet created a "Saved Book Collection" (which you should!) -[G] shows you a Grid View of the Folder where the photo is located. (A problem that can occur here is- when you return to the Book Module (top Module Menu)- you will find many other photos added to the Filmstrip in the Book module.)
ALWAYS create a "Saved Book Collection"
ALWAYS re-open and edit a Book (& add more photos) from the "Saved Book Collection".
This 'Special' type of Collection contains the photos you use in the book, and automatically records all the editing you do to this 'Saved' Book.
