Using a dial to control any property in Adobe applications

In Lightroom, Photoshop, After Effects and Premiere Pro, we have a special dial that can control multiple different parameters. This dial is perfect for users with limited desk space or limited number of dials! This dial will also work for older Adobe versions.

Lightroom

In Lightroom, this dial function is found under Develop Module and is named Adjust any slider (select number field).

There is two ways to adjust any property. To make coarser adjustments, simply hover your cursor over the slider and turn the dial. To make finer adjustments, click on the property number to the right of each slider and then turn the dial. If the number is selected, pressing the dial will automatically select the next property number.

Photoshop

For Photoshop, Adjust any property (select number field) is found under Basic.

To use this dial, click on any property number such as the layer opacity at the bottom right and then turn the dial to change the number. If there are other properties in the selected panel, then pressing the dial automatically selects the next property number.

After Effects

After Effect's Adjust Selected Properties function is found under Layer Properties.

Click on the name of any layer property, such as Scale, and turn the dial to change this property. Unlike the other Adobe applications, this dial function requires you to click on the name and not the number.

Premiere Pro

In Premiere Pro, Adjust any property is found under General Adjustments.

To adjust a property, click on its number field and turn the dial. Selectable properties includes effects under Effect Controls panel or the Lumetri Color panel. If there are other properties in the selected panel, then pressing the dial automatically selects the next property number.
