The Time Management Series: Oh, I Know a Shortcut

If you are like me, you work with Photoshop a lot.  One way I have learned to save myself a few extra minutes while I am working is to really put some Photoshop shortcuts to use.  I will admit, I don’t use all of them, and I really don’t have any need for some of them.  The ones I do use, however, make working with either layouts or designs easier and a quicker process.  I went into my bookmarks, and came up with these five resources for you to explore, in hopes that you’ll find some shortcuts to use on your own.

I hope that these resources will help you find ways to make your Photoshop work flow quicker and easier.  I’ll tell you…my favorite keyboard shortcuts are these:

  • Using ALT+BACKSPACE to fill a selection with the foreground color
  • Using SHIFT while dragging something onto a canvas to automatically center it.

What are your favorite shortcuts?  Let me know in the comments!

    I personally feel that using the 'place' command to get my papers and elements on a page and the file script stacker (when I am doing titles with alphas especially) helps me scrap faster. I will do my titling work in another file and then just drag the finished title into my waiting layout. I am also a HUGE fan of PS actions that will do helpful things (resize to web is a FAV).

    That's so cool, I often do my title work in another document and then move it onto my layout as well. This way, I can see it all together before it's on my layout.
