So I just accidently discovered something new :D

To quickly toggle layer visibility on/off on multiple layers, click the ‘eye’ icon on one layer, then drag your mouse up/down over the other ‘eye’ icons you want to toggle.

I recorded a quick screencast here: http://www.screenr.com/1Tws

I just accidentally discovered something new (again)...

I use the keyboard numbers to toggle layer opacity.

  • 1 = 10% opacity
  • 2 = 20% opacity
  • 3 = ...you get the picture
  • It’s always annoyed me that I couldn’t toggle layer fill from the keyboard and that I’d have to use the slider when I wanted to change it.

    Well, I just discovered (by accident) that when you have your layer selected, hold down shift and press one of the numbers on your keyboard as if you were wanting to toggle the opacity and instead, it’ll toggle the layer fill!

    Aahh, many milliseconds of mouse using time saved!

    save type tool presets as a “Tool” for commonly used sizes/fonts/settings

    This sounds interesting, deiby. Can you elaborate?

    You can save presets for any tool using the Tool Presets feature. If you use certain combinations of fonts, sizes, leading all the time you can save them so you don’t have to re-enter the settings manually. However, PS CS6.1 has paragraph styles which I believe are better?

    Cmd+Shift+Y (Ctrl+Shift+Y on PC) will toggle CMYK only colors when you have the Color Picker open.

    If you have multiple layers in a .psd document and want to show only chosen layer, simply press Alt key and left click on “eye icon” on a chosen layer. In a result of this, other layers will be hidden. You can revert this action – simply repeat action :)

    Hope this will be useful for some of you :)

    Nice!

    In CS6, this icon also represents when you’re outside of CMYK colours:

    Totally, I’m pretty sure that’s in all the versions of PS.. at least as far back as version 7 I think (that I can remember). But the point was just that it gives you a better visual of your color range, rather than dragging around the picker and watching to see if the alert shows up to tell you you’re out of range. Thanks for sharing though ;)
