Learn How to Use Lightroom CC's New Reference View

In this free video tutorial, learn how to use Lightroom’s new Reference view for Creative Cloud subscribers.

Edit More Quickly with the Lightroom Quick Develop Panel

Lightroom’s Quick Develop panel in the Library module is great for making fast edits to or applying presets to one or many photos without having to go to the Develop module, and for making relative changes to a group of photos – for example, bumping up exposure on all photos by one stop. (There’s no other way to do this!). It’s also great for quickly undoing editing work on one or many photos.  Watch my short video tutorial below for more on these topics, as well as for how to reveal more settings and how to troubleshoot Quick Develop issues.
