[Photoshop]The assorted knowledge thread (now sorted!)
Alright, so I've been thinking:
Photoshop is huge! I don't know much about it, but almost every time I use it I learn something new, most of the time by accident actually.
So I figured that since there's at least a handful of people here on MT that uses Photoshop to paint, if we have a thread like this we can share the knowledge and learn from others accidental discoveries.
Try to keep it simple; like this:
Caps Lock toggles the outline of the brush and the eraser tool
(probably the other tools too, but I don't use those). I don't know why you would want to toggle this off, but now I know that if the outline should disappear I've just pressed Caps by accident
Come on party people, post something you've discovered. I bet everyone who've used PS just once knows at least something that I don't!
What we have brought up thus far:
Right mouse: Access the brush panel
] and [: Change the brush size (if you have another keyboard layout than eng you may want to rebind
Alt to get the eyedropper tool (not with eraser)
Shift straight lines
1-0 on the keyboard change opacity from 10% to 100%
Space: Hand tool
Space+alt: zoom out
Ctrl+Z: Undo last action (once)
Ctrl+Alt+Z: Undo multiple times
Ctrl+T: Free transform selection/layer (scale, shear, perspective, warp,...)
Caps Lock: Toggle brush visibility
Tab: Show/hide panels and menus
Hotkeys for tools and panels:
B: Brush tool
E: Eraser tool
S: Stamp tool
