Mark Wallace takes us through some lesser-known, but superb features in Lightroom, on Adorama. Most of the video really taps into the main purpose of Lightroom – to make editing and oragnizing quick and easy.

Mark introduces us to some very useful and convenient shortcuts, like instantly bringing up the Crop tool by pressing ‘R’, or entering White Balance by pressing ‘W’. To find out all of the available shortcuts in Lightroom, press ‘Command+/’ (Ctrl+/ on a PC). Grouping images by keywords is a real time saver, too.

The Grid overlay is my favourite. Being able to crop and remove distortion with a wide range of guides makes for a much easier and precise final result.
