Photoshop CS6 Cheat Sheet

By / Apr 11, 2013 / infographics

Photoshop is one of the preferred tools of web designers, and like any other tool that is used over and over, it’s important to optimize one’s workflow by using keyboard shortcuts. So the good people at ZeroLag have put together a super handy Photoshop CS6 cheat sheet exclusively for WDL.

How to Read the Keyboard Shortcuts Key:

Photoshop Tool Shortcut = grey text

Action Shortcut = blue text

  1. Look for the Photoshop Tool Shortcut (grey text) or Action Shortcut (blue text) that you want to perform on the keyboard.
  2. If you want to use a Photoshop Tool Shortcut (gray text), press on the corresponding key. (Example: To access the “Type” Photoshop Tool, press the letter “T” key)
  3. If you want to use an Action Shortcut (blue text), hold down the Command key, then press on the Action Shortcut key you want indicated in blue text. (Example: To access the “Transform” Action Shortcut, hold down the Command key and press the letter “T” key)

How to Perform Other Shortcuts Not on the Keyboard:

Follow the indicated keys/actions next to the specific shortcut you want to perform. (Example: To “Switch Tools” hold down the Shift button while pressing a Photoshop Tool Shortcut, always indicated in grey text.)
