This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Integrate Library & Develop Modules
With that in mind, here's the idea that I would like to open for discussion & debate:
• Merge the Library's "grid view" (which is quite handy) into the Develop Module and do away with Library Module completely.
• Add a tool menu to the Develop Module for the tasks that are currently taking place in the Library Module (e.g. keywording).
• When you double-click an image in the grid view, that image enlarges to facilitate detailed developing work (same as the current Develop Module). The filmstrip at the bottom would become visible during this time.
• However, if you select multiple images (Ctrl+Click) from the grid, you can perform modifications to all of those images simultaneously.
This is easy for me to suggest since I know absolutely NOTHING about writing software. What do the rest of you think?
