    Hi, I think i read somewhere about a way to preview a slider adjustment without applying it. Like moving the slider and when you release it gets back to where it was, without having to undo.

    Do you know if this is possible and how to do it? Any key combo to hit while adjusting the slider? Any plugin or mod?

    Thanks.

    If you mean about default settings I think you can move the slider to some values and double click on it and it will be reset to default one.This works in Camera Raw and I think it also works in LR.

    No, I mean something like you hit some button combination while you move a slider, you see the changes, but on release it gets back to whereever it was before touching it (not reseted / default position). Sometimes I just mess with the sliders to see what changes, I think a lot of people do. It would be quite faster with something like this, and I think i read somewhere about something like this.

    I don't know if you can save snapshots of your settings to see which ones you like better in LR like you can in Camera Raw.
    I don't use LR,I'm just guessing there might be similar option.:cool:

    You could make virtual copy and have many versions. It really doesnt take up hard drive space. Also would undo work?
