25 Helpful Photoshop Tips and Tricks

Photoshop is a tremendously complex and intricate program, and it can take years to master all its various functionalities. This helpful video will move you along that road by showing you 25 tips and tricks to improve your Photoshop skills in no time at all.

Coming to you from Nathaniel Dodson of tutvid, this great video will show you 25 helpful tips and tricks to improve your Photoshop capabilities and make your workflow more efficient. There is always more than one way to do any specific thing in the program, and building up a repertoire of little shortcuts can really add up to a faster workflow over time. Personally, my favorite little shortcut is using the hotkeys for changing opacity and flow. For a little longer than I would like to admit, I changed these via the click menu at the top of the screen. Given the fact that I change these settings constantly during an editing session, it ended up adding up to a lot of wasted time and more so, a lot of annoyance that interrupted my thought process. Becoming more proficient with keyboard shortcuts in general is well worth taking the time to master. Check out the video above for all of Dodson's tips and tricks!
