Quick Lightroom Tip: Clear Quick Collection
Here's a very quick Lightroom tip for you. I often use the quick collection in Lightroom as a sort of temporary clip board or place to collect some images that I'm either collecting for a blog post, or for a comparison and so on. Sometimes I will be in the processing of going through images , and I may have set some search filters in the library or something similar, when I decide that I may want to add some images to the quick collection. However, I already have images in it that I no longer want, but I don't want to leave the current view to go to the quick collection.
I could just go to the quick collection and manually delete them, but I also don't want to leave the folder or collection that I'm already in. there are many reasons why this may be the case. I may have set up some search filters or I may have some images already selected, or I may have selected several folders.
There's actually a very simple solution. You can clear the quick collection by right clicking on it in the folders section of the Library module and choosing Clear quick collection. You can also get this command from the File menu or by using the shortcut Command + Shift + B (Ctrl + Shift + B on a PC). this way you can clear out the quick collection without having to leave your current view!
