Photoshop Keyboard Shortcuts Cheat Sheet

One of the things people are often surprised at is how users of Photoshop can remember keyboard shortcut keys. These key combinations can speed up a workflow and keep creativity flowing uninterrupted. So regular users will make a point of learning a few, then discovering more as they progress.

There’s lots of cheat sheets out there but what if you’ve changed the shortcut to something you find easier to remember? Well, Photoshop has a built in cheat sheet maker, it’s nothing fancy, but it can be quite handy.

Here’s How To Get The Built-In Cheat Sheet

01-MenuFrom the menu choose;

PC: Edit> Keyboard Shortcuts     Or press Alt+Shift+Ctrl+K

Mac: Edit> Keyboard Shortcuts   Or press Alt / Option+Shift+Cmd+K

 

 

 

A dialogue box opens;

02-dialogue

This is where you change the keyboard shortcuts should you wish. If you have different keyboard shortcuts you may need to choose the one you want the cheat sheet for from the drop down menu.

03-choose-shortcuts

Next click the Summerize button. (Just as a side note, as a Brit and a teacher, I wish Photoshop had an option for the UK spelling.)

04-summerise

Photoshop will want to save an Htm file, there’s no particular place it should be, your desktop or a temp folder will be fine.

05-save-as

As soon as it’s saved Photoshop will open your file in your default browser. Why an HTM and not a PDF? I have no idea.

06-opens-in-browser

So there you are, all ready for you to browse through and, if the mood takes you, learn a few new shortcuts.

  1. Do you know of a way to only show the binded keys, and not those that have no shortcut? I went to print the summary, but it ran 30 pages because of all the tools that were listed that didn’t have assigned keystrokes.
