I know there are many tutorials and articles describing how to add labels to images in Lightroom, i.e. star rating.
But I want to share with you something a bit different.
This is a very interesting technique, involving keyboard shortcuts, that I have learnt from Richard Curtis from Adobe.
As you may know, you can use keyboard shortcuts with numbers to add star rating and colours to image (0 to 9).
But here’s Richard’s technique:
Using the numbers keys (0 to 9) when the adjustment brush is turned on in the development mode does not work the same as in the other modules/modes. However :-
- Using SHIFT+the number key (0-9) will star rate the picture or change the colour (the Auto advance setting if turned on will be ignored).
- Using CTRL+the number key (0-9) will star rate the picture or change the colour (Auto advance mode will fire if turned on).
