10 Really Useful PHOTOSHOP Keyboard SHORTCUTS That You Don’t Know (Probably) – Photoshop Tutorial

November 5, 2019

In this video, I’m going to show you 10 really useful Photoshop keyboard shortcuts that you don’t know. Probably. Hi, everyone. Welcome back to another very exciting tutorial
here at the My name is Jesus Ramirez, and you can find
me on Instagram @JRfromPTC. In this Photoshop tutorial, I’m going to show
you 10 really useful keyboard shortcuts that you probably don’t know. If this is your first time at the Photoshop
Training Channel, then remember to subscribe and enable a notification bill. Also, as you’re watching this video, let me
know in the comments how many of these shortcuts were new to you and also, let me know what
shortcuts I missed that you find really useful that way the comment section can be a good
resource for great keyboard shortcuts. Okay, let’s get started. The first shortcut is how to redo the last
selection. Photoshop actually remembers the last selection
that you use. Let me show you how that works. I’m going to select the quick selection tool
and I’m going to make a selection around her arms and I’m going to hold Alt, option on
the Mac. Subtract from the selection and now that I
have her arm selected I can create a new layer and I’m just going to paint in a shadow, so
I’m going to paint with black, like so. Then I can press Ctrl D, command D to deselect
and I can continue painting a shadow down here and maybe now I want to add to the shadow
or maybe create highlights on her sleeves, but I don’t want to waste the time creating
the selection again, so I can simply press Ctrl Shift D. That’s command shift D in the
Mac to bring back the last active selection. Now, I can paint with white on a new layer
with the overlay blending mode and now I can create highlights on her sweater. Then I can press Ctrl D, Command D to deselect. If I need to bring back the selection, once
again, Ctrl Shift D. Command shift D on the Mac. The next keyboard short cut that I’m going
to show you is the lock transparent pixel shortcut. I’m going to select the brush tool and then
I’m going to select the color that you can really see, so I’m going to select red and
I’m going to create a new layer and I’m going to paint with red. Maybe you’re painting or retouching or doing
anything where you’re creating new pixels on a blank layer. Then, if I want to make an adjustment like
maybe paint with a different color, so I’ll select blue and you want to paint directly
over those pixels, but not affect the pixels that are transparent, then you’re going to
need to use this keyboard shortcut. I’m going to undo that by pressing Ctrl Alt
C. What you want to do is press the question mark key, which is the forward slash key and
then that locks transparent pixels, so when you paint, you only paint on the pixels that
are opaque, not through transparent. Also, notice in the layers panel that the
lock transparent pixels icon is selected and there is a lock on that layer, so I can press
the forward slash key to remove that and now I can paint anywhere in the layer. I can press the forward slash key again and
maybe use a different tool, like maybe the burn tool and I can burn only the opaque pixels. I’m not generating any new ones by painting
on transparent pixels. The keyboard shortcut that I’m going to talk
about is one that actually gave me a lot of problems when I was first starting out in
Photoshop. I have the brush tool selected and you can
see the brush preview. If I use the bracket keys on the keyboard
to increase or decrease the size of my brush, you’ll see the cursor change. It’s giving us a preview of the actually brush,
but if you inadvertently hit the caps lock key, we no longer get that preview. We just have the crosshair cursor on our painting
tool, so even if you decrease or increase the size of the brush, which I’m doing now,
you won’t see the preview, so make sure that the caps lock key is off if you’re ever missing
that preview of the brush. The very first time that I came up across
this problem, I actually ended up uninstalling Photoshop, believe it or not because I thought
my Photoshop was broken. That as back with Photoshop version seven. I’m sure I’m not the only one who was confused
by the caps locks key. If it’s confused you as well, let me know
in the comments below, but anyway, just remember the cap locks key gives you the crosshair
cursor or the brush preview and I prefer the brush preview, or course. The next keyboard shortcut I want to show
you is the fit to screen or bird’s eye keyboard shortcut, which is really the same one. I’m going to press Ctrl T, Command T to transform
and I’m going to zoom out. Then I’m going to make this image larger,
like so. Then I’m going to double tap on the hand tool,
which fits the image to screen and actually, the keyboard shortcut to fit to screen is
Ctrl zero. However, when you press Ctrl T, Command T
on the Mac to transform, but the corner handles are outside of the canvas and you cannot see
them, you can use that same keyboard shortcut, Ctrl zero to zoom out and see the handles. Whenever you transform something, and you
don’t see the handles, Ctrl zero, command zero. Also, as a side note, Ctrl one, command one
on the Mac zooms into 100%, the actual view. Basically, the same thing as double clicking
in the hand tool or right clicking with the zoom tool and selecting 100%. In the next keyboard shortcut, I’m going to
show you how to toggle the canvas color. I’m going to zoom out just so that we can
see. Sometimes you’re working with an image and
your canvas color really doesn’t help you see the image, so you may need to change the
color of it so that you can see the image better. You can press the space bar in the F key on
the keyboard to toggle between the canvas colors. See that? See how I’m toggling between the canvas colors? You can add your own costume canvas color
if you like, but I prefer the presets that Photoshop has available. Once again, space bar and the F key. If you want to toggle the canvas colors to
the opposite direction, just add the shift key to that. The next keyboard shortcut that I’m going
to show you is the feather selection keyboard shortcut. I’m going to select the elliptical marquee
tool and I’m going to create a very simple selection, like so. Notice that the feather is set to zero, which
means that if I create a new layer and fill, say, with the foreground color and you can
do so by holding Alt and backspace, you will of course, get a really sharp edge, but if
you want to feather that, then what you would need to do is deselect, type in the feather
amount that you want and then make the selection again. But, if you created a complicated selection,
it might take you too long to redo the selection, so what you want to do is apply the feather
to the selection. To do so, you can hold shift and the F6 key,
one of the function keys. Shift and F6 and that brings up the feather
selection window and you can enter a feather radius. We can try 20 pixels and press okay. Now, if we fill with the foreground color,
Alt and Backspace, Option Delete on the Mac, you’ll see now that we no longer have a sharp
fill. We now have a fill with feather. In the next example, I’m going to show you
how to use the spring loaded keyboard shortcut. This is not really a single keyboard shortcut,
it’s more of how the keyboard shortcuts effect the keys if used in a certain way. Let’s say we have the burn tool selected and
I start burning the image and I want to zoom in, I can hold Z and I’m still holding Z,
zoom in, release and it goes back into the burn tool, so I didn’t really have to select
that again. Whenever you hold a keyboard shortcut down,
the tool will temporarily be selected and when you release you’ll go back to the previous
tool. Maybe, in this case, you can hold the R key
to rotate. Click and drag. We rotate the image. I release the R key and I go back into the
burn tool. Then I rotate again. Now, there’s a trick to that, however. If you hold R and you click and drag to rotate,
make sure that you release the mouse button first and then the R key because if you hold
the letter R, click to rotate and release the letter R first, it’ll go into the actual
rotate tool. See that how that now is selected? Make sure that you release the mouse button
first and then release the letter R. I’m going to double click on the rotate tool to bring
it back to the regular view and I’m just going to select the hand tool and double click on
that to fit the image to screen. In the next example, I’m going to show you
something that I have here on this folder. I have two circles. A black circle and a white circle. If you wanted to create a design where you’re
going to fill something around the circle, maybe you’re creating a watch or something
like that, there’s a keyboard shortcut that you should know, which is the repeat the last
transformation keyboard shortcut. I’m going to press Ctrl H, Command H to bring
back guides that I was hiding. Ctrl H, Command H hides the extras and I’m
going to press Ctrl T, Command T to transform. Click and drag the pivot point to the center
of that circle, then I can change the rotation to 20 degrees and hit enter. That of course, rotates that circle into that
position. Now, if I press Ctrl Alt Shift T, Command
Option Shift T to duplicate that same transformation onto a new layer, watch what happens. I’m pressing that same keyboard shortcut over
and over and over again, so that duplicates that circle around the larger circle and that
works because we changed the pivot point to the center of the larger circle and we changed
in increments of 20 degrees, which of course divides equally among the 360 degrees of a
circle. You can use this technique to create very
interesting designs by simply duplicating the last transformation that you did onto
a new layer. The next keyboard shortcut that I want to
show you is one that I use all the time, and I like to call it the whoopsie-daisy key because
when you make a mistake, you can always go back and not even worry about pressing cancel
or anything like that. Let me show you what I mean by that. Maybe you’re working in Photoshop, and you
click on the crop tool, and you decide that you no longer want to be in the crop tool,
maybe even you started making a crop, but you really want to cancel that. Simply press the escape key, and that’ll get
rid of that. Maybe you open up a window, so let me switch
tools and go into edit, fill and decide that you no longer want the fill window, you can
just press the escape key. The same thing will happen with any window. Maybe you press Ctrl K, command K on the Mac
to bring up the preferences panel. Maybe you don’t want it anymore. You can press the escape key. If you select the type tool and you click,
and you decide that you no longer want that text layer, you can simply press the escape
key, and that cancels out of that tool, and the layer disappears. If you make a mistake and you’re in a tool
or window that you don’t want to be in, just hit the escape key. Now, the few examples are extras. These are just a couple of things that I use
all the time, so one of those is with text, so I’m going to create a text box, then I’m
going to go into type, paste, Lorem Ipsum, which is the generic text and I’m just going
to press Ctrl A, command A to select all the text and I’m going to change the color to
white, so that you can see it better. Notice how there’s hyphens … that it’s hyphenation
and that’s enabled by default. If you want to get rid of the hyphens, just
press Ctrl A, Command A on the Mac to select all the text and then you can press Ctrl Alt
Shift H. That’s command option shift H on the Mac, and it gets rid of all the hyphens. It removes the hyphenation. The way of doing that without a keyboard shortcut
is by going into the paragraph panel, clicking on the flyout menu, selecting hyphenation,
and then unchecking this checkbox. The keyboard shortcut’s so much easier. Once again, the keyboard shortcut is Ctrl
Alt Shift H. Command Option Shift H on the Mac. Another keyboard shortcut that I use all the
time is holding the Alt key on any one of these I icons to hide all the other layers
except for the layer that I clicked on, so I held Alt, Option on the Mac, click on this
layer and all the other layers where hidden. I can do the same thing again to bring them
back. I can do the same thing with this black circle,
so hold Alt, option on the Mac, click on the eye icon to hide all other visible layers
and to bring them back, Alt, Option on the Mac and click again. The last bonus keyboard shortcut is another
one that I use a lot when I make mistakes. Sometimes you just make too many mistakes
on one file that you have to go back to the last time that you saved it or to have a file
first look when it was open. You can simply press the F12 key on the keyboard,
function 12 to revert the image. How many of these shortcuts were new to you? Let me know in the comments below. As I said earlier in the video, post your
favorite keyboard shortcut not shown in the video in the comments and check out what other
people are commenting and maybe you’ll discover something that can be useful to you. Don’t forget to click on that subscribe and

and that you learned something new. Thank you so much for watching, and I will
talk to you again soon.

    One shortcut I use a lot is R to rotate the canvas. Like when painting around a subject for a mask I find it easier working in a certain direction on my tablet so while working I hold the R key to bring up the rotate tool, rotate the canvas where I need it and release the key to go back to painting.

    Jesús is a Photoshop (tutorial) god.
    In every video you manage to give so much information, so clear, so valuable.
    And your non-distructive method fits with how I personaly like to work.
    Besides that, you have a very respectful way over you, especialy in the videos were you reviewed some of your viewers photoshops.
    Keep up the good work, because it is awesome!

    I lost the size of my brush so many times at the start, and it took me many days of closing down my laptop and starting all over again. Caps lock was inadvertently pressed…
    To change ones brush size on a Windows PC, it doesn't work with the bracket keys. Brush size is changed with "Alt+right click" and dragging left or right. If you drag up/down you change the softness of the brush.
    Great tips, Jesús..!

    Great tutorial as always, Jesus. Always getting something new from all your videos!
    I know the shortcut/issue I'm going to add here is a well known one, but still… Photoshop beginners may find it useful.
    I happen to work on multi languages Windows OS. And one may know that to switch entry language in Windows the shortcut is: Left Alt + Shift.
    You see where I'm going here? That combination of keys is very often used in Photoshop but it still activates Windows shortcut. Hence if all of a sudden your Photoshop shortcuts are not responding anymore, better check out what entry language is now used in Windows 😉
    Now, not so many solutions -> remove the useless language(s) from Windows -or modify Windows shortcut or get used to it and switch language again whenever your Photoshop is not responding the way it should.

    STRG+D was new… will use it very often.
    on the other hand, I am searching for a shortcut concerning the following case (searching for years now 😉 ). Inserting a picture as a new layer wich has e.g. much higher resolution. The new pic appears to large. Now I have to resize e.g. by STRG+T. Is there a short cut to resize that it fits to the screen. With dragging in a smart object it works…
    Any idea?

  • Reply Ian Whiting November 27, 2017 at 11:05 am

    Many thanks, I learnt 5 new shortcuts.

    I often use these Text Box shortcuts: select the required lines of text, hold ALT and click left and right arrow keys to adjust letter spacing and ALT + up and down arrow keys to adjust the leading.

  • Reply Fernando Marinho November 28, 2017 at 2:18 am

    The one I didn't know was the Ctrl+ Alt + Shift + T to redo the last transformation. Just as a note, there is a Hyphenation checkbox right at the paragraph's box, no need to enter the extra menu. And one that a use a lot is the configuration to zoom with the mouse scroll (not much a keyboard shortcut but a function). Oh, and the Q to refine the selection with the brush, it`s awesome!

    Jesús, FYC: Changing feather of selection at 6:46: This is not reversible. If you once changed feather from 0 to e.g. 50 and then you want to go back to ZERO, it says, feather must be a value between 0.1 – 1000. This conflicts with the original value of 0 and after selection 0.1, feather does not return from 50 to 0.1. Greetings to Adobe.

  • Reply Sergio Sotomayor Prat November 29, 2017 at 6:47 pm

    Very useful video.
    Jesús, I wander if I could have any success in impulsing you to generate a video on a kind of recipe, or procedure order, to follow when trying to match a certain tonality/coloration offered by a third party software or another Adobe’s software, such the case of Ligthroom presets. Some days aback I found a color image treated with a Ligthroom preset used to take the image to Black and White; the final rendition had such an attractive appearance that motivated me to attempt to obtain same result with Photoshop; I reached very close but not enough, after several try and failure I realized problem was rooted in my lack of certain elements of judgment, being one of them to properly look at the image. Perhaps you can devise a technique to help on this matter.
    I tried to attach an image to exemplify my point but it was not accepted in this comment; I could send a copy to any mail you determine..

    Great video, JR. Thanks a lot. I was wondering for a while now, if there is shortcut for "repeat last action" (I know that in Illustrator is Ctr+D, so I figured there has to be one for Photoshop too, since it's all Adobe programs), and now I know. 🙂 Again, thanks.
    And my favourite shortcut would be, by far:

    Ctrl + Space + left mouse key > and drag up/down/sideways = Zoom in/out canvas
    For me it's the fastest way

I ve found your tutorial very useful as I am new in photoshop. I feel sorry that I can't add shortcuts. Please keep going. Much much appreciation. By doing so you bring cooperation and love to many.

    Excellent! I didn't think I was going to learn any new shortcut, but I must admit I did – I totally didn't know about the Space+F/Shift+Space+F for switching canvas color. I also didn't know (or, at least, never care to think about) that there was a shortcut for toggling the hyphenation (I usually did it via the fly-out menu). As always, thanks for sharing these great tips!

    Also mention the ability in the curves dialog box to select added points on a curve using the ‘+’ & ‘-‘ keys and moving the points around using the arrow keys. It’s a quick and easy trick you can teach all of us to fine tune a curves adjustment.

    CAPS LOCK got me too !!!

  • Reply Greg Chard July 7, 2019 at 9:47 pm

    Thanks for sharing these shortcuts. I knew only 3 of them.
    If I can remember correctly on Photoshop 7, there was a shortcut to show all the short cuts on each tool.
    Does Photoshop CC ha a similar feature?

  • Reply Tommy Sargeant July 26, 2019 at 5:31 pm

    alt-ctrl-Z (step back) and double-clicking layer icon to highlight text.. or whatever. Hold "shift" on a bottom layer to select every layer above it… even to delete them all or merge them (unless you have used a blending mode)… there is a way to do that also. It basically takes a picture of the layer and saves it. There are so many that after years and years they just come naturally to you. Esc is always good for nearly everything… So is Ctrl-D if something has gone wrong (even if it's not a selection, but something is locked and you don't want to waste time trying to figure it out)
