Scrolling up or down through your brush pallet used to happen with command + [ ] until the new brush engine came on the scene in PS7.

this is true for photoshop 4. using "[ " " ] " did allow you to scroll thru the brush list.
they changed this in the latter versions.

AND....try the shortcut keys below, it also works out ...just some of them cannot ..and some make the same effect...[window]

A, B, C,..... to Z
Ctrl+A, Ctrl+B, Ctrl+C,..... to Ctrl+Z
Ctrl+Alt+A, Ctrl+Alt+B, Ctrl+Alt+C, ...to Ctrl+Alt+Z
Ctrl+Shift+A, Ctrl+Shift+B, Ctrl+Shift+C, ... to Ctrl+Shift+Z
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+A Ctrl+Shift+Alt+B, Ctrl+Shift+Alt+C, ...to Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Z
Alt+A, Alt+B, Alt+C, ...to Alt+Z
Shift+A, Shift+B, Shift+C, ... to Shift+Z

i cant remember all...u just try it. And u can use "Actions" for record what u did and set the key u want [F1-F12] ....i always tell people what i remember only ...and tell them to find out others by themselves..coz its so lots.

THIS IS USEFUL THREAD...I'M GONNA GIVE UP PEOPLE THIS LINK...THANKS!!!

If I'm not mistaken, you should be able to scroll through the brush list (rather than resizing) in the newer versions of Photoshop using the , (comma) and . (dot) keys... (or the < and > keys for easier reference).

I made these minimal modifications that I find very useful:
Assigned ctrl+z to step backwards in the history palette.I find undo a silly option having this one available!PLUS,u won't b needin the history pallette that much,anymore,so it's a pallette less to bulk up your workspace.
Assigned F3 for print size(view>print size).Helps me keep notion of how much detail I should put,or not,when coloring a comic page.All that zooming in n out can make u overdetail a page without any worthy outcome,if not a bad one(specially concerning deadlines).

Just a small advice.B4 creating a new shotcut key,check the options given by the right button.After all,it's a lot more simple clicking a moving the cursor a little up or down than try to remember all these crazy combos n having your fingers do funky gymnastics.

Man you guys rock, this is some solid and very valuable tricks.



Cheers to all

ok...here is somehting that has been bugging me until i understood it today...

Everyone knows the number keys change the opacity of your brush...and that shift+## key will change the flow of your brush.


Well, for whatever reason...and i finally found out why....if you have the AIRBRUSH toggled ON...these hotkeys are reversed....and now the ## keys change flow and shift+## will change opacity...




in the beginning of this thread it showed that you can change the blend mode of brushes/layers....it was not listed that you need to hold shift+alt and in combo with the hotkey


now is there a hotkey for changing tool presets, similar to the , and . for brush tip?
 
Old 07 July 2005   #57
Does anyone know if there's a hotkey to cycle back and forth through the list of tool presets (not brush list)? I didn't find any mention of it anywhere.
 
Old 07 July 2005   #58
LoTeK I dont know of such a thing.


Anyway thanks for the tips I knew most of em though

Question Selecting Multiple Layers to place into a set (folder)?

Asked a couple of PS pros that I know (or are at least better at PS then I am currently), is there a way to select multiple layers versus selecting one at a time to put into a set (or folder)? Just curious... as it sounded like I should have made the set first before creating multiple layers.

Thx. XenaTrek.

New in CS2:

select a layer,
Shift select more layers (not link, you can select muliple layers at once in CS2)
Ctrl G
