Shortcut for Keyboard shortcuts

If you are like me, you love keyboard shortcuts but often forget that cool one that you only use every now and then. The good news is that you can press Command -/  (slash) or (PC Ctrl -/) to bring up all of the keyboard shortcuts for that module. Now if you can just remember that one shortcut you are all set.

    • Nothing at this time that is built into Photoshop, but if you have a Mac you can check out a plug-in (app?) called Cheat Sheet that will do the same thing. (Third party stuff so use at your own discretion… but I really like it.)

  4. Is there a shortcut to use auto-straighten when cropping?

    Or one to active the manual straighten?

    • Well, not that I’m aware of (that doesn’t mean there’s not one – there might be – I just don’t know it). However, you can press “r” to switch to the crop tool (this works from anywhere in Lightroom), and then click the “Auto” button that appears under the lock icon. Hope that helps.

    • When you’re in crop mode (r key) – you can hold CTRL (PC)or CMD (Mac) and give the 2 points for the ruler endpoints to do a manual straighten.

      • Shift double click on the word Angle seems to do the same thing as Auto. Double click alone resets the angle to zero.
