Lightroom Quick Develop PanelLightroom’s Quick Develop panel in the Library module is great for making fast edits to or applying presets to one or many photos without having to go to the Develop module, and for making relative changes to a group of photos – for example, bumping up exposure on all photos by one stop. (There’s no other way to do this!). It’s also great for quickly undoing editing work on one or many photos.  Watch my short video tutorial below for more on these topics, as well as for how to reveal more settings and how to troubleshoot Quick Develop issues.

This video is a five-minute lesson from my 15 1/2 hour Lightroom CC/6 and 5: The Fundamentals & Beyond video series.
