The 15 Tips You Must Learn. Quicker.

The 15 Tips You Must Learn. Quicker.

Your ultimate goal when mastering the Photoshop user interface is to make it as transparent as possible. When you want to switch to a different tool, change a brush size, or open a dialog box, you shouldn't have to stop what you're doing to waste your time looking for the tool, palette, menu item, and so on, choosing it, and then coming back to where you were. The true Photoshop gods simply press a key or key combination, and things just happen.

Hundreds of keyboard shortcuts are listed in this book. Don't try to memorize all of them all at once—you'll freak and get overwhelmed. Start by looking at the following Top 15 Tips list. Some of the items in the list are not single shortcuts, but are a category of shortcuts that you should commit to memory. Master one category, work them into your workflow, and then move on to the next category. After a while, something magical happens: The Photoshop UI becomes a subconscious thing, and you experience Pixel Nirvana. You think Paintbrush tool, and your finger instinctively presses the B key without you having to actually think the B key or even look at the keyboard.
