I get a fair number of emails from frantic users who have lost some critical part of the Lightroom interface. In this video I show you how to find missing panels, tools, and more. Watch the video to learn not only how to find what you have lost, but also how to hide what you don’t need.
For best quality, after hitting Play, click on the sprocket wheel in the bottom right of the video and choose 720/HD or the highest setting available.
For those of you who need to just get to what you are looking for, below is what I cover and where you can find it in the video:
