ONE FINGER ACTION
We love shortcuts when it comes to image editing – anything that speeds up processing and gets you away from the computer and back behind your camera can only be a good thing, right? Here’s a nice trick for Lightroom users – when using the Adjustment Brush, Spot Removal or Red Eye Correction tools, did you know that you can adjust the brush size and feather with a single finger on your mouse? If you’re using a mouse with a centre scroll wheel simply roll it back and forth when using any of these tools to quickly adjust the brush or tool Size. If you want to change the Feather of the tool, just hold down the Shift key and repeat. For Apple users using a Magic Mouse ( with no scroll wheel), simply trace your finger left, right, up or down to adjust the Size in the same way, or hold Shift, as above, to adjust the Feather. You’re welcome!
