    I was thinking of moving to Lightroom because my CS4 will not open
    my RAW files from my new Nikon D7100. Adobe customer service told me
    they are not supported in LR either. I wish I could switch to LR. Thank you for your post.

    Kelly, this was a great video. I didn’t know about the option key or how to change just a small part of a photo. Do you download presets, and if so can you recommend a site. I hope you do some more of these.

    Super tips – thanks

  6. I am a photoshop user to this point but I would like to start with lightroom, seems easier and more user friendly for raw files. My question for you is…you said that you have to click on ‘option’. Is that on a mac and how would I do that on a pc? I suspect it may be control on mine…Thanks for your help and the great video of easy touch ups.

      Joan, Yes you are correct, the PC equivalent command to “Options” is “CTRL”. Happy editing

        You might want to try the alt key instead on a PC. I’m a PC and Lightroom user and the alt key works for me. 🙂 The control key is the same as command on mac.
