The Loupedeck+ makes photo editing even better!


Some time ago, I wrote a news story on a device called Loupedeck that is designed to assist photographers with editing photos in Adobe LightRoom. It is a great device that has a keyboard type form factor and it has quickly become a mandatory part of my photo editing workflow. It has allowed me to easily and accurately edit photos, and to do so exponentially faster than doing so with a regular keyboard and mouse.

Just recently, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that there is an upgraded version called Loupedeck+. While the layout has remained mostly the same, they have built it sturdier and with mechanical keys, and they have added the ability for more customization. In addition, in a great advancement, the new version now works with Skylum Aurora HDR. The manufacturer has also indicated that “The Loupedeck+ is also currently in beta integration with Capture One, with full functionality on the way later in the year. It is apparent to me, that Loupedeck+ has the potential to become an almost mandatory workflow tool for just about every photographer.

If you would like to purchase the Loupedeck+, you can pick one up from B&H Photo Video and Amazon for $229. I did read somewhere that they are even offering a $50 discount for the folks that already own the original Loupedeck.

  1. Thanks for the article, Julian! I’m a core fan of Loupedeck, cause editing routine has become faster and easier with it and more precise, of course. By the way the news about its collaboration with Aurora HDR from Skylum https://skylum.com is a pleasant surprise. It must be a performative tandem worth trying.

  2. Hi Erin,

    Thanks!! I also really love my Loupdeck, and it is a mandatory part of my photo editing workflow. I am hoping that I can get my hands on the Loupedeck+ soon so that I can put it through the paces and see how much better it is than the original.
