5 Photoshop Keyboard Shortcuts for Faster Editing!



Learning keyboard shortcuts is the best way to work faster and more efficiently in Photoshop. In today's episode, we explore 5 Keyboard Shortcuts that are sure to speed up your workflow in Photoshop.


Keyboard Shortcuts - Mac

Spacebar + CMD + Click & Drag - Precise Zoom

Use this keyboard shortcut to quickly zoom in and out of specific areas of a photo. Especially great for detailed editing work in Photoshop. Zoom in for detailed work, then zoom-out to see the results.

CTRL + ALT + Click & Drag - Change Brush Size and Hardness

Click & Drag Left and Right to change brush size. Click & Drag Up and Down to change brush hardness.

V, 1-9, 0 - Adjust Layer Opacity

To change layer opacity, first select the Move Tool by pressing "V". This will make any changes applicable to the layer, not a specific tool like the Brush Tool. Use the numbers on the top of the keyboard to correspond to layer opacity. "1" will make opacity 10%. "5" will make opacity 50%. OPTN + CMD + SHIFT + M - Add Layer Mask

Learn how to create keyboard shortcuts in this episode. There is no default keyboard shortcut for making a layer mask - we suggest making one to save time! OPTN + CMD + SHIFT + S - Save for Web and Devices

To save images with the correct settings for display online, be sure to use "Save for Web and Devices"
