This is a mac shortcut , but is very useful. I learned it not long ago and I use it all the time.
I changed my settings under the Preferences for Snapshots and now all I have to do is:
Option + Command + 1 (left thumb and index finger dance)
Any area I draw a marquee over is saved to my Clipboard, then I just Command V into my document.
Find it Here: System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > ScreenshotsMAC Only!
Is Faster, I didn’t know where to change that, never thought of it , Thank you Graphic-Studio
All you have to do is.. Create a selection, then press control/cmd + Shift + C. This copies all the layer contents inside that marquee and then paste it anywhere.
These are great, everyone. Thanks!
On a Mac with CS3 , if you have multiple layers selected in the layers palette, use Cmd + Opt + arrow key to duplicate the selected layers. On my Macbook, it doesn’t matter if I use the up, down, left of right key. They all appear to do the same thing, which admittedly, doesn’t make a ton of sense.
Will also work if you only have one layer selected. Doesn’t have to be multiple, although it’s probably faster to just use Cmd + J for that.
Found this accidentally because it is the same keystroke I use to cycle through tabs in Firefox (Cmd + Opt + L or R arrow).
On MAC :
Command + [ = goes to next layer down
Command + ] = goes to next layer up
Still don’t know what good it’s for, since I use Select Layer when clicked.
What is the fastest way to rasterize a single blended layer? At the moment i add a blank layer below and merge it, but sometimes it changes. I am missing some basic knowledge with PS… when i merge layers they nearly always change into something i don’t want!
