2017 Adobe Lightroom Keyboard Shortcuts Cheat Sheet

Last Updated 23rd May 2017. (Update to main image, PDF download and Hi-Res PDF)

After many request through email and on social networks, I have finally been able to find time to create the Adobe Lightroom Keyboard Shortcuts infographic, that so many people asked for.

I had no idea that Adobe Lightroom was so popular, especially among all you photographers out there, until I started getting emails asking me “Where the hell is the Lightroom Keyboard Shortcuts!?”

Lightroom is great at organizing your photos, and is vital in this day an age where we can take as many as a thousand photos in just one day! It’s really handy as you have all your photos in one place, and makes them available on your computer, on the web, and on your mobile devices.

With this set of keyboard shortcuts for Lightroom, it will no doubt speed up tasks that would normally take double or treble the time to do with standard mouse / menu command access.

    Jamie. I like the look of these, and have downloaded the Photoshop & Lightroom versions to have a look at and see if I can use them. One thing does strike me tho. I am a PC user and in the immediate future, will never ever use a MAC. I suspect many MAC users will be the opposite. So the complexity of the cheat sheet is doubled for zero gain in mine and I suspect many other users. Next time you are making these, would you consider separate versions for PC, MAC and both. Thanks

    Very nice. Not sure if i missed it or not but is there a shortcut for toggling on and off effect of local adjustments e.g. brush or grad filter?

    Everything I see here is that you are okay with printing it. Are you giving permission to reprint without modifications (keeping your logo, etc)? Or should this be considered copy written material?
