How to Create Your Own Photoshop Keyboard Shortcuts

Photoshop is a tremendously intricate program with literally hundreds of built-in functions, and each of us use it in different ways with different priorities. As such, you might want to create your own keyboard shortcuts to help you streamline your editing process, and this fantastic video tutorial will show you how to do just that. 

Coming to you from Aaron Nace with Phlearn, this helpful video tutorial will show you how to create your own keyboard shortcuts in Photoshop. If you spend any decent amount of time in Photoshop, it is well worth taking 20 minutes or so to do this. With such a complex structure and so many functions, taking any chance you can to make your workflow more efficient can add up to big savings in the long run. It might feel a little slower at first as you begin to build up the muscle memory for the various shortcuts you have created, but after about a week or so, you will be able to perform more complex and commonly used tasks without even thinking, and you will probably wonder how you got on without them in the first place. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Nace.
