Using ranking keys in Lightroom’s Development mode when Adjustment brush is enabled.

I was speaking at an event with the @AOP earlier this week and somebody asked if there was a way to use the star rating and colour assignment (0-9) keys inside Lightroom when the Adjustment brush is enabled in the Development module. Good news is that you can, and there are two options.

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).

  1. Hello Richard,

    It was good meeting you at the Adobe workshop sessions at the aop.
    Thank you for the short course which was instructive and enlightening.

    As I mentioned to you on Tuesday, after your short film on Pripyat, I’ve included a few links to the book I recommended on the same subject.
    I also love his book on Havana, but they are both now out of print and are starting to command high prices on the net…
