Adobe Lightroom Tips for beginners: Turning off module preview

I finally made the jump and bought Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5, so I will be doing a series of small tutorials/ Tips & tricks of the things I am discovering and finding out useful in this software.

You can expect these to be beginners tips since I am just beginning with the product but I do hope that they will turn-out to be useful for some of you out there.

Today I will begin with this small switch that can be found at the left-hand side of every module. This small switch, that I did not notice first, is used to switch OFF/ON the specific module.

So toggling it will help you easily see the effect of a specific module on your image and is useful to judge if you like the outcome of that module or not, you can think of it like a module “Before/After” knob.
