Photoshop Tricks To Improve Your Skills – Part 1

Here’s some very common Photoshop tricks that will help improve your skills.


  • Full screen mode -If you’re working on a large sized image such as a flier, you can maximize the available editing area by pressing the “F” key to toggle, or switch, between a full screen mode with and without menu bar, and normal editing mode.
  • Keeping your lines straight – Simply hold down the “Shift” key while you click and drag with the mouse. This works wonders on tools such as the Line Tool, Move tool and/or Paintbrush Tool. It’s dynamic for drawing straight lines!
  • Use the “Tab” Key to hide the Palettes – How simple is this? You can hide them temporarily just by hitting the “Tab” key. If you want to bring them back, press the “Tab” key again.
  • Double-click to open documents – Did you know to can open a document in Photoshop, you don’t need to reach for the File > Open menu option – all you have to do is double-click on the grey Photoshop window background!
