Print out your Photoshop Keyboard Shortcuts

There's nothing better in Photoshop than to save time using the shortcut keys. You can even create your own shortcut keys if you don't find the default ones handy. (See previous blog)
Learning where the shortcuts for your most commonly used functions can take some time to learn. That's when printing out the shortcuts can come in handy. Here's how to do that.
  1. Select Edit > Keyboard Short-cuts
  2. Select which set of short-cuts you want listed. In the example below I had created my own custom shortcuts by selecting the little "New Set" icon and following the instructions on the bottom of the screen.
  3. Click the Summarize button
  4. Save the .htm file
  5. Open the file in any browser and print your list of shortcuts
Now you'll have a list of shortcuts handy to help you memorize your favorites. This will be a long list but you can highlight the ones that you want to memorize.
Being able to customize and use shortcuts in Photoshop will save you a lot of time. You'll wonder how you ever got along without them!
