These shortcuts include layering, text, viewing and image handling.


When working in Photoshop, simple tasks can become a hindrance to your workflow. So to help out, we've got a great selection of Photoshop shortcuts right here, all guaranteed to speed up your workflow once you get the hang of them.


Create New layer

MAC: Shift+Cmd+NWINDOWS: Shift+Ctrl+N

Get started on your latest project in next to no time with this handy shortcut that instantly whips up a new layer and dialog box


Create new layer behind selected layerMAC: Ctrl+New Layer iconWINDOWS: Cmd+New Layer IconMastering the new layer shortcut is a doddle, so once your ready to drop in a layer behind it, be sure to use this shortcut.


Fill a layerMAC: Alt+Backspace (foreground) or Cmd+Backspace (background)WINDOWS: Alt+Delete (foreground) or Ctrl+Delete (background)This command will fill an empty later with the current foreground or background colour.


Flatten layersMAC: Cmd+Alt+Shift+EWINDOWS: Ctrl+Alt+Shift+EAdd a new, empty layer to the top of your stack, select it and use the above command to flatten the layers in an image to sharpen the result. This adds a flattened version of the image to the new layer but leaves the layers intact too


Merge visible layersMAC: Cmd+Shift+EWINDOWS: Ctrl+Shift+EThis command will allow you merge all your existing layers in order to create one new layer. Beware! Once merged, they are extremely difficult to seperate.


Stamp down selected layersMAC: Cmd+Alt+EWINDOWS: Ctrl+Alt+EOnce you've selected your layers, use this command to merge them into just one layer. To see them merged as a new layer, simply add in the Shift modifier. This is useful if you need to make adjustments later on.


New layer via copyMAC: Cmd+JWINDOWS: Ctrl+JUse this command to create a new layer from an existing one. Sound complicated? Give it a go!


New layer via cutMAC: Cmd+Shift+JWINDOWS: Ctrl+Shift+JLike creating a new layer via copy, this command will create a new layer with the selected image area in it, the only difference via cut is that it will remove the selected image portion from the original image.


Bring layer to top of stackMAC: Cmd+Shift+]WINDOWS: Ctrl+Shift+]

Here, you can move your preferred layer to the top of the stack of images you're working with in Photoshop.


Send layer to bottom of stackMAC: Cmd+Shift+[WINDOWS: Ctrl+Shift+[This is plenty self-explanatory in that it does exactly the same as the command above but in the opposite direction.


Bring layer forwardMAC: Cmd+]WINDOWS: Ctrl+]This will allow you to bring any selected image to the front.


Send layer backMAC: Cmd+[WINDOWS: Ctrl+[If you decide to change your mind, you can always select the image and send it to the back of the pile!
