Even if you don’t have two monitors, the Secondary Display option in Lightroom can be really helpful. For example, I often run a secondary “display” (I think of it as a second Lightroom “window” in this case) so that I can view a series of images in Survey mode in the “primary” display window and see how the changes that I’m making in the Develop module (on the secondary screen or window) impact the way that the images work together. I find it’s an excellent way to get the same look and style across various images.

In Addition, the Normal, Live and Locked modes on the secondary display give many different display options for showing clients images on a secondary computer. And, to move between views on a secondary monitor (Grid, Loupe, Compare and Survey), simply add the Shift key to the shortcuts keys that you already know! (G, E, C and N).

    So does it finally work to dim the second monitor? Didn’t check it out.
