The Fun Extras - Set Ten
189. Most Used Photoshop Elements Keyboard Shortcuts
The class I am teaching in the evenings requested that I make a list of my most used keyboard shortcuts. Being brand new to Photoshop Elements, they are constantly jotting them down as I tell them to use them.
I thought that everyone might appreciate this list since I took the time to make it.
Watch the quick tip videos for more keyboard shortcuts. I have shared many and have many more to share!
MOST USED KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS
Control J - New layer via copy (duplicate) – copy entire layer or selection
Control G - Group layers
Control D – Deselect
D – Foreground and background colors default to black and white
X – Foreground and background colors switch (eXchange)
Control U – Hue/Saturation Pop-up box
Control L – Levels Pop-up box
Control T – Transform tool (brings up bounding box)
Control I – Inverse (layer mask from black to white)
Control Backspace - Fill with background color
Alt Backspace – Fill with foreground color
Space bar – Hand Tool
Control Z – Undo (works in other programs – try it to save the day!)
Control S – Save (A Must Do Often!)
. . . and of course, just as in many programs and even browsers, Control C for copy and Control V for paste.
