Lightroom Magnifier ?
« on: August 23, 2022, 07:28:46 am »

I was just having a play around in Lightroom 11.5 and somehow I managed to get a magnifier, a small square over the image with a crosshair in the centre, and wherever you moved the square it would magnify that portion of the image – rather like a loupe or magnifier.

It is a very useful tool but I’m damned if I can find how to get it back.  Searches of the great wild internet have not so far revealed a solution.

Does anyone know how I can access this tool again ?

It sounds like you were in the Transform and Guided Upright tool of Develop

Or the white balance tool (by typing the w key).

It was the guided upright tool in Transform.  The white balance tools gives you pixels the guided upright replicates what I saw.

Thank you to everyone who offered suggestions.
