Lightroom 4 Keyboard Shortcuts

Lightroom 4 Keyboard Shortcuts

I have been using Lightroom for a good bit of time now and I have learned some very useful shortcuts.  These may not seem like they save that much time but when you spend hours editing it can really add up.  There are hundreds shortcuts in Lightroom but I want to show you the ones that I find most useful.  Since I am now a Mac guy that used to be a PC guy I will also list the shortcuts for both Mac and Windows.  Reminder:  This is not a complete list.  You can find all of the short cuts straight from the Adobe website here.
