hey just wondering if theres shourtcuts for the following...
-copying a selection to a new layer
-toggling the marching ants selection on/off

crtl + c = copy
ctrl + v = paste to new layer

ctrl + d = deselect
ctrl + shift + d = reselect

but im thinking you want the visiblity off... i dont know if you can do that...

other good tips:
x = toggle backgroud/foreground colors! whoOhoO!
hold alt while holding a brush and the eyedropper shows up!
crtl + shift + i = invert the selection!

this should really be in the photoshop section.

if you're on a layer hold ctrl+shift+arrow key and it duplicates the layer and nudges it 10 pixels.

or ctrl+arrow key duplicated and nudges 1 pixel

also you can use arrow keys and shift+arrow key to nudge your layer..

very helpful :D

coolk, what about toggle between dodge and burn?

Shift-O to toggle through the dodge and burn tools.
actually, shift + any of the tool palette shortcuts cycles through the tools in general.

btw isn't there a Photoshop forum for these kinds of questions? :(

ctrl-J to copy selection to new layer while retaining the original in the old layer.

ctrl+shift-J to cut the selection to a new lay.

ctrl-H to hind selection

hope this helps:thumbsup:
