Keyboard shortcuts can be very useful for speeding up your workflow and getting results quickly. They can execute commands or modify the results of adjustments made with interface controls. Some controls are selection specific, meaning the results will vary depending on whether a layer, a mask, or an effect is currently selected.

Interface modifiers

These keyboard commands will modify the results of adjustments made to the selection on the viewer.

  • ALT: Holding ALT while resizing a selection will resize it from the anchor point rather than from the opposite corner.
  • SHIFT when rotating: When rotating a selection, holding SHIFT will snap the rotation to 15 degree increments.
  • SHIFT when resizing: When resizing a selection, holding Shift unlocks the aspect ratio, so the height and width can be adjusted independently.

These keyboard modifiers will alter the results of adjustments made when changing a property value with the arrow keys. Select a value and use the up/down arrow keys to move the value in either direction.

  • ALT: Hold ALT while editing the value to change it more quickly, in units of 10.
  • SHIFT: Hold SHIFT while editing any floating point value to increase precision, and adjust it in increments of 0.
