Unknown Photoshop CS5 keyboard shortcuts

Photoshop UpdatesWelcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by 🙂

Today, I would like to share with you some useful keyboard shortcuts in Photoshop. I have learnt them from Dave Cross – big thank you, Dave! I will give you a link to Dave’s blog as well so stick with me.

I have been using keyboard shortcuts for a very long time, I just love finding ways to speed up my workflow. Keyboard shortcuts save me so much time. I use keybord shortcuts in every application I use, not just Photoshop. But I think it’s Photoshop where I use most keyboard shortcuts. Maybe it’s because I use Photoshop most of the time… 😉

Here are some of the keyboard shortcuts I use most often:

  • Ctrl+J (Cmd+J on Mac) to duplicate a layer,
  • V for Move Tool,
  • Spacebar for Hand Tool,
  • Activate next layer up – Alt + ]
  • Activate next layer down – Alt + [
  • Move layer up – Ctrl + ] ( Cmd + ] )
  • Move layer down – Ctrl + [ ( Cmd + [ )
  • Numbers to change the opacity of a layer, e.g. 1 for 10%, 5 for 50% etc.

Here’s the link to Dave’s blog for you to get some more great content from Dave:

I hope you’ve learnt some new keyboard shortcuts today. Enjoy your weekend! 🙂
