  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

Hello all....I am a beginner so I am asking your help. I have Windows 10 Home edition on my computer. I installed the stand alone LR 6 . In the Develop Module, when the graduated filter tool is being used, I am supposed to see at the bottom of the image I am working on, two toggle switches. One is to select when edit pins can be viewed. The other tool to select wheather I want to show the 3 part gradient shading of the grad filter tool always on, vs showing the shadings when I hover over the edit pin. I think there was one more tool where I can compare before or after views of the image. Last evening while practice editing, I must have pressed abutton somewhere because I can no longer see them.....Can you help me restore them? Thank you

Sounds like you have hidden the tool bar. Pressing "T" toggles it on and off.

Oh My... You are absolutely correct...I must have inadvertently pressed the T bar. Thank you Dan.

I have the same problem, although (1) I don' t know that the tools were ever there (I'm BRAND new to LR), and (2) Pressing T doesn't seem to change anything for me. I'm working with the Lightroom CC 2.0.1

Any help would be appreciated!

[ T ] is a shortcut for Lightroom Classic CC. 2.0.1 is Lightroom CC - it is a different program.

I think I've found the solution for Lightroom CC, which is to control-click in the image, then choose "show overlay" and the pins reappear.
