Do you edit your pet photos using Lightroom Classic on a small laptop screen? This tutorial is for you! When editing your images to look their best, you really need to be able to SEE them properly. 👀

On a small screen, the image itself becomes tiny, with interface elements (like the dock and various panels) taking up soooo much valuable screen real estate space. Luckily, there's a few settings you can tweak (aside from increasing your screen resolution to make all the text tiny 😬) to maximise the space you have to view the image. In this week's Editing Toolbox video, I'm sharing them all with you, so you can set up your laptop the RIGHT way for editing.

Plus, this might even help with keeping you focused on your editing by minimising distractions! 😉

While all the instructions are for Mac users, if you're a Windows user, you might be able to do the same thing using slightly different modes, commands or keyboard shortcuts.
