Hola, welcome to FasTuts Photoshop!
Becoming comfortable with moving and interacting with the canvas will go a long way towards mastery over Photoshop and using it successfully for design. Below is a list of the fundamental tips techniques and methods for navigating in Photoshop successfully:
Space (hold) – Hand tool (panning)
Enabling Overscroll – Removes the restrictions of the hand tool (edit – preferences – tools)
Ctrl+right-click – Layer menu shortcut (best in mac) (just right-click if you have the move tool selected)
Hold R: rotate (Esc to exit) THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN BEFORE THE ZOOM SECTION IN THE VIDEO, OOPS
Enable Scrubby Zoom – Changes the zoom tool’s behavior from marquee select to scrubby zoom.
“Z” (hold) – Scrubby zoom
Alt+scroll – clicky zoom
Ctrl+0: Fill Screen
With time moving around in Photoshop will become second nature. Hopeful these tips will help to accelerate your growth.
Buckle up buttercup, you’re about to go pro.
Quick White Balance technique.
Sample color you want to be white.
Filla new layer with sampled color.
Set blending mode to “Divide.”
Works in After Effects and Premiere also.
This was before FasTuts was its own thing. It used to be part of my personal blog – DinoNuggets.com. I realized I had way more to share, and decided to focus on FasTuts as a stand-alone site and channel. I’m too lazy to edit this old video to be more on-brand and current
Welcome to FasTuts Photoshop!
Hold keyboard shortcuts instead of clicking them and switching your tools, ya doof.
