Hey again Lightroom Lovers! Occasionally I’ll accidentally stumble onto a tip that I have to share with my readers. Resizing the filmstrip can be really handy depending on the size of the screen or your editing workflow. I have to admit that I had no clue about this trick until just the other day, when I accidentally resized my filmstrip.
This is handy for a couple of reasons. Depending on the size of the screen that we’re working on, we can make the filmstrip smaller to have more room for the active image that we’re working on. Making the filmstrip larger gives us larger previews on the strip itself of course.
It’s really easy to do. You can do this in any module, but you’re likely to do it in the Library or Develop module. What you’re going to want to do is place your mouse cursor on the line below the active photo, just above the film strip. You’ll see your cursor change, then click and drag up or down to change the size of the filmstrip previews.
Just place your cursor on the line below the active photo to make the cursor change to a resizer.
Different sized thumbnails are useful depending on the situation!
How are you today? Do you use different sized previews? Did you even know about it? 😀 Check in with a comment.
