Workspace: Personal

Nearly everyone has their own take on the “perfect” workspace and so far, I am sure this blog series has demonstrated that.

My changes to the default workspace are simple, but enough for me to be able to navigate in a way that I think is more logical.

Here are my recommended steps:

  • Remove the Capture tool tab as I rarely shoot tethered (simply right-click on the Tab and choose Remove XXX tab)
  • I always adjust Exposure and White balance first, so I move the Exposure tool tab in before the Color tool tab. If you hover over the Tool Tabs, a tool tip shows you need to press the modifier key to move them.  For the Mac, it’s a Cmd and drag.
  • In the Exposure tool tab, I add the White Balance tool by right-clicking on the tab and choosing Add Tool.
  • Next, I rearrange the order of tools in the Exposure tool tab to what you see in the screen grab.

Other than that, I am pretty much on the default. I quite often hide the Viewer Labels (View>Hide Viewer Labels) as I find them distracting. The Labels are the metadata indicators at the bottom of the image in the viewer.

Finally, I tend to have Proof View turned on (circled in the screen shot) as I like a little more space around the image for viewing.
