Use Lightroom Solo Mode To See What Tools You Are Currently Using

When I was new to Lightroom I found it overwhelming and a bit confusing at times. There is simply to much going on when editing images. Like most Lightroom users, I would just scroll to the right hand tool bar in development mode until I found the tools I was comfortable with. At times, I couldn’t find the tools I needed or I wouldn’t use the tools I needed because I was a little weaker using them.

To lessen the overwhelming feeling you can get while using development mode, Scott Kelby suggests using Lightroom Solo Mode to automatically close the different development panels when you click to another panel.

After trying this tip, I found it does help and I only see the topic of each panel. Using Lightroom Solo Mode makes easier to find what I’m looking for. It also speeds up the editor process as well. If you hate a cluttered editor, then this is the tool for you.
