Default LR4 Newbie

Ad
HI! My new M Monochrom is forcing me to abandon Aperture 3 for LR4. First impression of LR: I don't like the darkness of the hard-to-read tool-screen. ALSO, I DON'T SEE HOW TO DELETE PHOTOS I DON'T WANT TO KEEP. AND WHEN I TYPE F FOR FULL SCREEN, LR4 ONLY MAKES THE PHOTO A LITTLE LARGER RATHER THAN EXPANDING IT TO COVER THE ENTIRE SCREEN. I welcome any assistance in regard to those 2 items/

In the meantime, I am exploring LR4's general operability. Any other important general facts I should know to ease my initiation into LR4?

In library-mode select the photo and push the delete button (upper right of your keyboard). LR asks you to delete the picture completely or just from the library.

Right-click on the photo and select "Delete" from the lower end of the popup menu does the same.

Shift-CMD-F is what you are looking for.

Now, within LR4, I am trying to access Silver Efex Pro 2, but don't see any LR4 menu labeled Photo(s)? Where is it?

Things are certainly not self-evident in LR4, unlike in Aperture.

I suggest you get either the Scott Kelby or Martin Evening book for a reference tool on using LR4. In addition to answering basic questions, there are tons of tips that you might not think to ask about.

I'm not generally a big fan of video tutorials, but these by Julieanne Kost (and others by her) are quite easy to follow.

This Adobe video 'How to get started with LR4' might be of use...

I have also downloaded the Luminous Landscape videos, very helpful, easy to digest.

When in the Develop menu go to upper left corner of screen and click on PHOTO and then "EDIT IN" and then your choice. Good luck, it's awesome software.

Yup LR4 is a complete mess.

The user interface is a awful and stuff is hidden all over the place.

With Aperture everything is very intuitive and customisable.

I have no complaints about the results or the (over)comprehensiveness of the range of tools available.

The user manual helpfully tells you what everything does .... but not why, or what the results are.....

The guys who wrote this have their brains wired up differently to mine.....

Yes, agreed on the impenetrable interface. Though familiar with C1, I needed Adobe's Classroom In A Book for LR3 to really get going with it.
