  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In my new book, Adobe Lightroom CC - Edit Like a Pro, you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    The book is based on the cloud-native Lightroom CC desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in Lightroom Classic/6.

How do I change the view in "Library" to show panels of info to the left and right of the images?

The view in "Develop" is fine, but in "Library" I only see the images (whether in grid view or lupe view).

Here's what my Library view looks like:

Probably Shift-Tab will do it. That toggles all side, top, and bottom panels on or off.

F7 F8 - Function keys also shows/hides left-right side panels. F5 F6 the top/bottom panels
Or click the tiny triangle on the very edge of the Lightroom window.
And Right-Click the tiny triangle on the very edge of the Lightroom window to set options.

And, if there is one shortcut to memorize, it's <Ctrl>"<" (on Windows) or <Cmd>"<" on Mac. It will cause a panel with a lot of shortcuts to be displayed. This panel is even module dependent...

Philippe, Unless you are using a different language keyboard other than US/English-
I think you meant to write [Ctrl-Cmd] + [/] ie. Hold down [Ctrl-Cmd] and press the Forward Slash key- Think of it as the question mark key- What are those shortcuts??
The shortcut [Ctrl-Cmd] + [,] is the shortcut for preferences. ie Hold [Ctrl-Cmd] and press the key with [<] to go 'back' into preferences setup.

The problem with Ctrl-/ is that it doesn't show all of the shortcuts. For example, the shortcuts F5, F6, F7, and F8, discussed above, are not displayed. Nor are Ctrl-0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and Ctrl-Shift-0, 1, 2, 3, 4. Seems like a serious oversight to me; wouldn't it be a simple and obvious thing to have a "Help" panel show all the available options?

Agree completely! But the full list is rather long!
In the mean-time we have to rely on experts to help, like-
Victoria Bampton- Keyboard Shortcuts | The Lightroom Queen
Laura Shoe- https://laurashoe.com/thank-you-for-your-subscription/

Or- use the Menus (Window > Panels) that show a shortcut where available-
