We’re always looking to move quick right? Lightroom’s Quick Develop pane surely sounds like a good way to move quickly through applying edits to our images. We haven’t dived into the full power of editing our images in the Develop module, bu the Quick Develop pane in the Library module can handle basic adjustments.
We do the heavy lifting on editing our photos in the Develop module. The interesting thing about quick develop is that it actually lives in the Library module and lets us apply the basic tweaks to our images.
There are a few adjustments that we can make from within the
- Apply presets from the presets we’ve made in Lightroom
- Apply white balance presets from Lightroom’s built-in options
- Auto tone the image, which basically allows Lightroom to edit it automatically
- Adjust exposure – adding or subtracting 1/3 stops of exposure with the inner arrows, or full stops with the outer arrows
- Adding / subtracting clarity with the inner and outer arrows
- Adding / subtracting vibrance to our photos with the inner and outer arrows
Will Quick Develop find a place in your photo workflow? I definitely prefer to do my adjustments in the Develop module, but also see the power of adjusting some things while culling as well.
