The Fun Extras - Set Nine
173. What are your favorite keyboard shortcuts?
Here are mine! I have been giving out this list at my local night classes when I teach for some time now, but have forgotten to share them with you.
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.
Here are your answers!
Dawn: This is an AMAZING resource! Thanks for sharing again! Ctrl+J! And Ctrl+ D
Patricia: Control+G, use it so much. So glad you talked me into trying Photoshop Elements and getting away from Paint Shop Pro. It is so much easier to use with the clipping effect.
Tammy: Mine are control J, control d, and control z
