Lightroom Tip - Quickly Switch between Color and Grayscale
If you want a very quick look to see if an image works in black and white just select the image and press the 'V' key. You can quickly switch back and forth and between color and grayscale.
It works in both the Develop
and Library Module. It also works in the Grid mode of the
Library Module. There is a menu option in the develop
module but its quicker to use the single 'V' key.
Where this really becomes very useful is when you select a set of images in the Library Module and can instantly see which will work well in grayscale. Select images and then press 'V'
Try it and see for yourself.
Let me know if this tip helps you.
Note: Thanks again to Steve Mcgonnell who highlighted the grayscale switch via an email to the Image-Space.
