It’s nice to keep learning things about Lightroom. It tends to have solutions for problems long before I realize that I need them, and so I was happy to find this morning that it has handy shortcuts for all the targeted adjustment brushes.
- shift-alt-cmd-N: None (cancel adjustment)
- shift-alt-cmd-T: Tone adjustment
- shift-alt-cmd-H: Hue adjustment
- shift-alt-cmd-S: Saturation adjustment
- shift-alt-cmd-L: Luminance adjustment
- shift-alt-cmd-G: Grayscale mix
Activating any shortcut will jump your develop panel to the appropriate controller, so you can keep your cursor focused on the image and still see the effects of your adjustments in the sliders or levels. It’s a nice, efficient way to minimize extra mouse movement and make quick modifications.
