Make Your Workflow Cheetah Fast
A big part of being a professional photographer is making sure your workflow is as efficient as possible. Even if you’re not a professional, using keyboard shortcuts in Photoshop will drastically shorten the amount of time it takes to edit photos. You can use this time saved to be more creative with your editing, or even join a water polo class.
All of these shortcuts work for PC computers as well! Just use CTRL instead of Command and ALT instead of Option.
