Been getting used to Lightroom 5 and starting to like it a lot! Was doing a lot of processing on landscape pictures....just basic stuff like cropping, exposure adjustments, saturation, etc.etc.etc. After doing about 15 pictures I "lost" the BASIC tab from my tools selection. Everything else is there as it was before but the basic tab where you can make the preliminary adjustments is gone! Spent about an hour looking for it with no luck at all....anybody have an idea of where it might have gone to? I looked in the lightroom 5 thread and didn't see where anybody else has had the problem. Probably just a stupid oversight on my part but I have opened and closed all the other tabs and still nothing. HELP!! (please!)

Well, you may have inadvertently clicked the arrow at the upper right of the panel, closing it.

Aside from re-clicking the arrow, you can toggle your right-side panels off with the Ctl/Cmd + [number] keyboard shortcut. So Ctl+1 toggles the Basic panel on and off, to get to the others , 0-6 are the numbers that can be used.

I figured somebody would know how to get it back! Thanks for the help and for Mac users the correct keystroke is "Command 1" .....thanks again Tony! It kind of figures that you would be the first to help as I was in your hometown just last week.....did the Alaska cruise to the inside passage....absolutely beautiful country but lousy weather for most of the trip. Lots of overcast and rain but we still enjoyed it immensely.

Ah, well!

It is indeed beautiful country here, but yeah, the weather can be un-cooperative! Spring is, well, interesting, because one day it can be bright and sunny, nice fluffy bright clouds and such, great for capturing outdoor photos, and then the next day it can be wet and gloomy!

But still, in FaceBook we started a group a couple years ago, the "Pacific Northwest Photographers" group, and it just overflows with great beautiful stuff from the Pacific Northwest! And, there are well over 2,000 people who have joined!
