Lightroom Quick Tip: Getting to Recent and Favorite Places from Anywhere

Hi everyone, I am hard at work on the Lightroom 4 version of my Lightroom Fundamentals and Beyond DVD, with plans to then do another on Lightroom’s Output Modules, so I apologize that I have not had time to post any in-depth tutorials recently.

Here’s a quick tip to tide you over for at least a little while!

From any module in Lightroom, the filmstrip shows you the folder or collection you are currently in.

Click on that area for a quick way to get to All Photographs, the Quick Collection, or a recently visited collection or folder:

No more jumping to the Library module to revisit recently visited places!

Once you select a location, if you want to make it a Favorite so that it will always appear in your list, click back on the folder name and choose Add to Favorites (red arrow above). It will then appear in your Favorite Sources section (green arrow above.)
