Let's walk through an editing session using images from a day's shoot in Iceland. In the end, I'll edit down to two specific groups of images: one group of "keepers" destined for a slideshow and/or print, and another group ready to email to some of the subjects in the shoot.
First, I import the images from a wonderful day hiking with fellow Adventure team member Bill Atkinson in the mountains near Nesbud. (Importing is covered in Chapter 2.)
The images are displayed here in the Library module's Grid view. Figure 3-62 Notice how I have optimized the main viewing area of Lightroom by closing the right panel and collapsing the filmstrip. I'm working on a laptop and screen space is limited. I keep the toolbar visible. (The T key toggles it on and off.) I'll bring back the filmstrip later, in the Loupe view and when I filter my images.
Setting Thumbnail Size
I can control the size of the thumbnails in the Grid view with the Thumbnails slider, found in the toolbar. At this point, I keep the thumbnails relatively small so I can view as many of them as I can at once. Figure 3-63 But they're not so small (circled) that I can't view the extras such as Rotation Buttons and Color Labels.
