This is the second part of the Lightroom Keyboard Shortcuts article. If you remember in the original post I outlined my approach to using shortcuts in Lightroom and listed ones I use most often in my editing workflow.
The original article resonated well with the readers of my blog and on social media in general so I decided to extend the topic by putting together a cheatsheet of my favorite shortcuts, the one you can download and use inside of Lightroom.
This is the graphic I created in Photoshop where I listed my favorite Lightroom shortcuts.
And this is how it looks after I installed it to Lightroom using a little-known Panel End Mark feature of the application.The feature allows users to add any graphic in PNG format to appear on every panel (left and right) of every module.
Below is the 3 step installation process to bring Keyboard Cheatsheet into Lightroom.
Feel free to use images I created or you can use your own by following the installation steps below.
Installation: Step 1
Right-click (Option-click) to download the appropriate version below. Save it to your computer.
These are PNG images with the transparent background.
Installation: Step 2
Right click (Control-Click) at the bottom of the left or right panel in any module.
Select Panel End Mark > Go to Panel End Marks Folder
Copy PNG file you downloaded in Step 1 to the Panel End Marks Folder
Installation: Step 3
Now you have a new option under Panel End Mark menu: LR_Shortcuts_Cheatsheet_WIN.png or LR_Shortcuts_Cheatsheet_MAC.png depending on what version you downloaded.
Select the image name of the graphic you copied to Panel End Marks Folder in step 3 and it will appear at the bottom of the panels.
The Lightroom Shortcuts Cheatsheet appears on both panels in every module.
