Digital Photography Software: Photoshop Tips And Tricks

When I first was learning Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, I was actually annoyed when, in taking an online class, the instructor would continually note the keyboard shortcut, or talk about little tricks for whatever technique they were teaching. At the time, it just seemed that keyboard shortcuts and tips and tricks are exactly that—shortcuts—and that’s not the way to learn anything.

But what I didn’t know then was that the keyboard shortcuts and the tips and tricks that help you move more effectively are integral to the working in Photoshop and Elements. They’re part of the process. So, I’ve learned to appreciate (really appreciate) the beauty and inherent need for shortcuts in any Photoshop/Elements workflow.

With that in mind, here are some great tips, tricks and shortcuts:
