  1. Also mention the ability in the curves dialog box to select added points on a curve using the ‘+’ & ‘-‘ keys and moving the points around using the arrow keys. It’s a quick and easy trick you can teach all of us to fine tune a curves adjustment.

  2. Excellent! I didn't think I was going to learn any new shortcut, but I must admit I did – I totally didn't know about the Space+F/Shift+Space+F for switching canvas color. I also didn't know (or, at least, never care to think about) that there was a shortcut for toggling the hyphenation (I usually did it via the fly-out menu). As always, thanks for sharing these great tips!

  3. Very helpfull video… That lock transparency and the last one F12 were new to me..
    I have learnt a lot from you.. U r a great teacher…
    Thank you Sir, for all the efforts!
    Stay Blessed!

  4. caps lock///////my god it was one of the hardest time for me with photoshop.
    I did everything to get back the preview for brush, even I ended uninstalling photoshop from my computer 2 times and when I came to know the reason I was just out of words …just because the press of one key.

  5. I do like your tutorial. I chose you for your precious thoughts, time, energy spent to teach us and for generously sharing your precious knowledge. I ve found your tutorial very useful as I am new in photoshop. I feel sorry that I can't add shortcuts. Please keep going. Much much appreciation. By doing so you bring cooperation and love to many.

  6. Wow, wow, wow!!! Thanks!!! And one question please: AFTER I select something in a dropdown menu or input something in a text box, like "Flow" box, that box is on focus, and any shortcut don't work any more, I have to hit enter to remove focus, then I could use shortcut. Any idea to fix this?

  7. I finally get it. Just like you, occasionally I would lose the ability to see my brush size adjustments. Very frustrating, and I never realized it was because I had inadvertently turned on caps lock. Thank you for that.

  8. Ctrl Alt Shift T (CS6) doesn't work to duplicate, even not move, the center pivot return to its shape central – not the center made by Guidelines… any idea?
