It consumes lot of time to drag and move the mouse to select each and every tool. I have seen a guy at Printing shop editing using Photoshop like pro, excited by the way he is handling the software asked him how he is able to do faster. The answer is shortcuts and practice. Here to help my readers I am sharing Photoshop shortcuts to help them do simple actions using Photoshop like move, crop, transform, blur or stamp.
By pressing a few keys on your computer keyboard at the same time, you can select tools, manipulate images and layers, and even make adjustments to your project’s canvas.
