//How To Quick Develop in Lightroom

The Quick Develop panel in the Library module gives you the convenience of quickly applying color and tone adjustments to one or more photos without leaving the Library module. Adjustments made to multiple photos using the Quick Develop panel are relative, not absolute. Any Quick Develop settings you make are recorded in the History panel of the Develop module, and corresponding slider controls adjust accordingly in the Basic panel.


Click the triangle  button on the right side of any section in the Quick Develop panel to show or hide that section.

  1. In the Library module, select one or more photos in the Grid view.
  2. In the Quick Develop panel, do any of the following:
    1. Apply a Preset
    2. Crop
    3. Color Treatments (Color or Black and White)
