I've collected some of these adobe photoshop shortcuts for you. Just use the following keyboard combinations to learn photoshop the easy and the fast way!
You can find more information on Photoshopjungle.com - Adobe Photoshop Tutorials! | On this website you will find free, online adobe photoshop tutorials. They easy to use and well explained! There are a lot of photoshop shortcuts! There's a quicker way to: Access menus when in full screen mode Apply Last Used Filter Change Blending Modes without using the Layers palette Change brushes without using the Brush palette Change the background outside an image Change the opacity of a brush or layer Close the working window Copy a layer Copy Layer as new image Create a clipping path without knowing how to use paths Create new Layers without using the Layers palette Fill layers or selections without the Paint Bucket Free up space on the scratch disk Hide palettes and rulers Hide the effects of a Mask layer Hide the marching ants Interact with Layers without using the Layers palette Invert a selection Invert an image's colours Load channels without using the Channels palette Make 2 images the same size
Make Free Transform appear Make layers appear and disappear Make selections without using the Magic Wand Open an image file Paste images into a Layer Mask Preserve Transparency Quit Sharpen with Blur Tool Select All Text Turn off Palettes -- except Tools Use one-keystroke actions View image and canvas size Working with Images Zoom Access menus when in full screen mode Press SHIFT + F and the file menu will appear at the top of the screen. Additionally, notice that in full screen mode, the Tools palette has a tiny addition to it: in the top right corner of the palette is a small arrow. Click this arrow and you can also gain access to the File menu. Apply Last Used Filter To apply the last-used filter: Press CTRL + F Apply the last-used filter with new settings: CTRL + ALT + F Change Blending Modes without using the Layers palette Select the marquee tool, and you can use these commands: Move Move Jump Jump Jump Jump Jump Jump Jump Jump Jump to the next Blending Mode: ALT + SHIFT + "+" to the previous Blending Mode: ALT + SHIFT + "-" to Dissolve: ALT + SHIFT + I to Multiply: ALT + SHIFT + M to Screen: ALT + SHIFT + S to Overlay: ALT + SHIFT + O to Soft Light: ALT + SHIFT + F to Hard Light: ALT + SHIFT + H to Colour Dodge: ALT + SHIFT + D to Colour Burn: ALT + SHIFT + B to Darken: ALT + SHIFT + R
Jump to Lighten: ALT + SHIFT + G Jump to Difference: ALT + SHIFT + E Jump to Exclusion: ALT + SHIFT + X Jump to Hue: ALT + SHIFT + U Jump to Saturation: ALT + SHIFT + T Jump to Colour: ALT + SHIFT + C Jump to Luminosity: ALT + SHIFT + Y And of course the most important one... Jump to Normal: ALT + SHIFT + N Note: This works on any tool that offers Blending Modes. Those tools are Airbrush, Paintbrush, Pencil, Clone Stamp, Pattern Stamp, History Brush, Gradient, Blur, Sharpen, Smudge, Dodge, Burn, Sponge and the Vector Objects tool. Also, Adobe has a nasty tendency to change these various shortcuts with each new release. Don't be surprised if these are slightly different in newer versions of PhotoShop. Change brushes without using the Brush palette This is a good one if you're working in full screen mode, with all the palettes hidden. To change the brush to the next/previous option, simply use the '[' or ']' keys. Build up a comprehensive set of brushes, and save them for future reference. Change background outside an image 1. Select the Paint Bucket tool (G). 2. Select the colour you want to change the background to. 3. Move your cursor outside the bounds of the image, then press SHIFT + left click. Change the opacity of a brush or layer How's it done? Simply use the number keys. For example, 1 will give you 10% opactiy, while 9 will give you 90% opacity (0 gives you 100%!). Also, if you type the number quickly, you can get increments, e.g. 56%. This works with brushes, rubber stamp -- even layers. Close a working window
Press CTRL + W Copy a layer Hold ALT and click/drag on your canvas. If you've got a selection, then CTRL + ALT and drag (within that selection) will copy and float the contents. With no selection active, CTRL + ALT and drag will copy the contents of that layer to a new layer and drag it. Copy Layer as new image Layer > Duplicate Layer > Document: New Create a clipping path without knowing how to use paths 1. Create two layers, one with a simple shape (a circle, for instance) and one with a picture. 2. Place the layer with the picture above the layer with the circle. 3. Holding down the ALT button, click the line that separates the two layers. You'll know you've got it right when the cursor changes to a leftfacing arrow with two circles. This tip allows you to create a clipping path based on the lower object's transparency. This means that if you have an object that's feathered at the edges, the picture will be feathered as well. Create new Layers without using the Layers palette You can do this in a number of ways: Press CTRL + SHIFT + N to open the "new layer" dialog box. This will allow you to name the layer at the same time you create it. Copy the current layer to a new layer: CTRL + J Copy the current layer to a new layer and name the layer: CTRL + ALT +J Copy the current selection to a new layer: CTRL + J Copy the current selection to a new layer and name the layer: CTRL + ALT Fill layers or selections without the Paint Bucket There are several ways to accomplish this:
Through the Fill dialogue box: Press SHIFT + BACKSPACE. This opens the Fill dialog box. You can then choose one of several options including Foreground colour, Background colour, pattern and more. To fill the area with the foreground colour, press ALT + BACKSPACE. Fill only non-transparent pixels: To fill only the non-transparent pixels of an area with the Foreground colour, press ALT + SHIFT + BACKSPACE. To fill only the non-transparent pixels of an area with the Background colour, press CTRL + SHIFT + BACKSPACE. This includes partially transparent areas, which means that if an object is feathered, the action will fill (partially) the partially transparent pixels. This allows you to keep shadows and feathered items looking identical to the way you originally designed them. Free up space on the scratch disk Every PS user out there must have experienced the problem of the scratch disk, so here's a solution. PhotoShop isn't exactly good at handling disk space, and the way to flush the scratch disk is to save more information on it! It sounds silly, but if you create a really small file, say 1x1 pixel and save it as a PSD, then this will pull the chain and flush the scratch, allowing you to save your big file. Or you can choose EDIT > PURGE > ALL or EDIT > PURGE > CLIPBOARD Hide palettes and rulers Press the TAB key to toggle the palettes between 'visible' and 'invisible'. Hide the effects of a Mask layer Hold down the SHIFT button and click the Mask layer icon. Hide the marching ants Press CTRL+H (but don't forget to put it back as soon as you can!) Interact with Layers without using the Layers palette There are several ways to do this.
To select a layer without the layers palette: 1. Position your mouse over the layer you wish to change to and press CTRL + right mouse button. 2. A menu of the layers will be displayed directly underneath the cursor ed. 3. Press CTRL + ALT + right mouse button, and the upper-most layer that has an object on it will be selected. Note, in version 6, transparency (or opacity) lower than around 30% will prevent you from selection a layer with the second option. To move layers without using the layers palette: Move Move Move Move a layer down one level, press CTRL + [ a layer up one level, press CTRL + ] a layer to the bottom, press CTRL + SHIFT + [ a layer to the top, press CTRL + SHIFT + ]
To select layers without using the layers palette: Select a layer down one level, press ALT + [ Select a layer up one level, press ALT + ] Select the bottom layer, press ALT + SHIFT + [ Select the top layer, press ALT + SHIFT + ] Invert a selection Press CTRL + SHIFT + I Invert an image's colours Press CTRL + I Load Channels without using the Channels palette To quickly see what channels are available to you, press CTRL and 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. This will display a greyscale version of that colour channel (CTRL + ~ takes you back to the composite channel). To actually load the selection from a channel, hold down CTRL + ALT + [number]. Make 2 images the same size
1. Select one image. 2. Then select the Image Size dialogue box from the Image menu as normal. You'll notice that the Window menu as well as others (dependent on whether you're using a Mac or a PC) will still be available. 3. Select the Window menu and click the name of the second image from the bottom of the menu. 4. The dimensions in the Image Size dialogue box will now be identical to the second image. Make Free Transform appear Press Ctrl+T Make layers appear You can click in the eye and drag down the list, or Option-click (Mac OS) or Alt-click (Windows) a layer's eye icon to display only that layer, or Option-click (Mac OS) or Alt-click (Windows) in the eye column again to redisplay all the layers. Make selections without the Magic Wand Select and then CTRL + click the layer that contains the element to automatically surround everything on that layer with marching ants. An easy way to open an image file A double-click on the working area (grey area on most users' copies of PhotoShop) will open the dialog box. Paste images into a layer mask On the image to be inserted: 1. Hit CTRL + A 2. Then press CRTL + C 3. Go to the layer where image will be inserted and ALT + click on its Mask 4. Then press CTRL + V
5. ALT + click on Mask again, to stop viewing the Mask Also, click on the little link icon between the layer and its mask. You can now move the mask without moving the layer (and vice versa). Preserve Transparency Select the layer or layer group and press "/". Quit CTRL + Q Sharpen with Blur Tool Hold down ALT + Left Click and drag Select All Text Press CTRL + A Turn off Palettes -- except Tools Press SHIFT + TAB Use one-keystroke actions F2 - Crop Create a rectangular selection and press F2. Useful for cropping out "big data": the information outside the bounds of the image that bulks up your file size. Use with caution. F3 - Stroke Create a selection of any shape and press F3. A dialog box opens allowing you to change thickness, colour, location and blending. This takes the default foreground colour as the initial colour. Careful: this tool uses the last selected painting tool (and brush) as the "brush" with which to create the stroke. This means that it the Pencil tool is the last tool you used, the stroke will be aliased. F5 - Expand Selection Create a selection of any shape and press F5. This opens the Expand dialog box and allows you to enter a value between 1
and 100. F6 - Contract Selection Create a selection of any shape and press F6. This opens the Contract dialog box and allows you to enter a value between 1 and 100. F7 - Gaussian Blur Create a selection of any shape and press F7. This opens the GB dialog box and allows you to enter a value. The default value is 3 pixels. F8 - Rotate Canvas Opens the Rotate Canvas dialog box and allows you enter a value, as well as choose clockwise or counter-clockwise. View image and canvas size Yes (on the PC): right click on the title bar of an image and you'll get a series of options including Duplicate, Image Size, Canvas Size, etc. Zoom Ctrl + Alt + + = zoom in (expanding window size) Ctrl + Alt + - = zoom out (shrinking window size) Ctrl + + = zoom in (retains window size) Ctrl + - = zoom out (retains window size)
