The Touch – a new way of controlling Lightroom


Some of you may have noticed that it’s been rather hard to get my attention for the last 4 months. I’m sorry about that. Here’s the reason:

The Touch is a new way for Mac users to work with Lightroom using either a trackpad or an iPad. At the heart of The Touch is its ability to allow you to develop your images without having look away from your work. A set of simple and intuitive gestures allow you to instantly grab the correct slider or puck and move it with precision without having to spend you time finding these elements on the user interface. Even if the slider in question isn’t visible on the interface The Touch will scroll straight to it.

It really is a totally different experience to be able to develop your images while never taking your eyes off your work – I urge you to give it a go!

Additionally, The Touch also provides support for a whole host of other functions for navigation control, rating and flagging images, switching quickly from the Library to the Develop module, seeing your images in full screen, etc. It’s quite possible to return from a shoot and do an initial edit using just The Touch.

Never before have I worked so hard on a new project. I’ve quite literally been working from 9am to 2am most days since the end of November! I’m personally a little bit tired now, but I hope you enjoy the result!
