alt+ctrl+z will undo multiple strokes or effects to a limited amount of count. Unless ctrl z is pressed it will go back to the way it was

NVM. I confused this for another tutorial I wrote on fixing shortcuts. :slow: Um, yeah. Perfectly aware of that shortcut. I just rather despise the fact that you have to use alt because I'm a stubborn old man. :iconshakecaneplz:

Most windows users would never think to use alt because many of us are so used to Ctrl+Z undoing multiple history states in other programs, so the purpose of this tutorial was bring that functionality back for those us who are stubborn bastards and don't like the photoshop version of undo. :P

Oh this is helpful! I knew most of them already but I never knew about F5. Is there a way to draw a perfect circle in PS? I can never figure it out.

Use the elipse tool, while holding shift

I've tried that, but what I wanted to do was to make an outline of a circle, and the only way I can think of doing that was to make two cicles, one inside the other and cutting the one inside out of the larger one, but then there's lots of room for error.

You make the Circle path, then right click with the pen tool and click Stroke. Select brush from the options and click ok.

Wonderful! I don't suppose you also use Illustrator? While I loooove Photoshop, Illustrator is really throwing me for a loop, lol.

Just a little addition, if you press shift+L, it'll cycle through the various options of the lasso tool. It's the same with all the other tools. :) So you don't have to click on the toolbox if you want to switch tools.

Sweet tut =) I was just mucking around in photoshop and found out 'shift+alt+left click' it brings up a live colour picker thingy! =D Im pumped now... and thanks for the tut!

owo I think you missed out on the alt + right click drag! It changes in size and it'll show you if it'll get bigger or smaller with an either shrinking or expanding red circle. Perfect people like me who hate navigating far from the shift ctrl alt buttons at the left corner.

it's true that crtl+z only undoes once... but put and alt in there and it's a beautifully continuous undo like it should be... CTRL+ALT+Z (your best friend)

thanks for these shortcuts, i'm still getting used to using them in PS (i was very much a point-and-click person until recently)

yeah, i think it only goes up to 20 times?
once i did it with CS5 and it only went back 5 steps ??

i think it depends on your settings, like how much RAM you've allowed to be spent remembering history. Pretty sure you can change that, but it eats up RAM if you make it remember too many moves. If you haven't set it manually I think PS is set to only use a certain amount of RAM in order to run smoothly as possible, so maybe 5 is all it calculated it could take.

Go to Edit -> Preferences -> Performance. You can put up to 1000 into History States. I use 70. Also, I find it much easier to go to Windows -> History and just select the state I want to return to instead of hitting undo all the time ^^
You should also add ctrl+shift+c to your list :) this is immensely useful; if you have several layers and use this command, it'll copy the image as though everything were flattened down!

quick note: to see all of photoshop's shortcuts or change any of them go to the edit menu then choose keyboard shortcuts (in CS2, I think it's the same for 3,4 and 5 though.)

SaraV-Art Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2011  Student Digital Artist
also if you press ctrl and then the + and - keys you zoom in and out in percent increments. =D

useful but there are so many more missing, to find all the shortcuts go to edit and then keyboard shortcuts, there you can view and change the shortcuts for all tools in photoshop =D

You can change keyboard shortcuts though, I changed control+z to 'step back' so it'll undo more than once

in the edit tab, near the bottom, it says 'keyboard shortcuts' or Alt+Shift+ctrl+K (yes, there is a shortcut to get to the shortcuts :XD:)

From there you can see all the current shortcuts and change them by selecting the one you want to change and typing in what you want it to be. You can also make completely new ones! :D
