Lightroom Shortcuts Cheatsheet

This is the second part of the Lightroom Keyboard Shortcuts article. If you remember in the original post, I outlined my approach for using shortcuts in Lightroom and listed the ones I use most often in my editing workflow.

The original article resonated well with my blog readers and on social media in general, so I decided to extend the topic by putting together a cheatsheet of my favorite shortcuts. This is one you can download and use in Lightroom.

Here is the graphic I created in Photoshop where I listed my favorite Lightroom shortcuts.

This is how it looks after I installed it in Lightroom using the little-known Panel End Mark feature of the application. This feature allows users to add any graphic—in PNG format—and set it to appear on every panel (left and right) of each module.

Library Module. Left Panel
Develop Module. Right Panel

Below is the 3 step installation process to bring Keyboard Cheatsheet into Lightroom.

Feel free to use the images I created or 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.

Window Version

Mac Version

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 the 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.
