    Hello. I just purchased Lightroom 5 and am starting to dig into it. The learning curve is there(coming from Aperture and iPhoto). I'm wanting to get some tips and tricks from you guys. Anything from useful keyboard shortcuts to editing tips. Lets see em!
    Thanks in advanced!

    Start watching Youtube tutorials, for me, is the best way to learn a new software. And always be courious with the parameters that Lightroom offer you to change. My favourite shortcut is "y".

    Nice, I like the "Y" shortcut! And I'll check out some YouTube videos.
