I am using Photoshop CS5 and I am humbly seek help and tip to perform a keyboard shortcut to make selection after pen tool has traced the image. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Here's one way:
When you use this key I believe it will cause a dialog to open, which you can confirm with the Enter key.
If you want to do it without any prompt at all it can probably be done through creation of an action.
With the path still active, press Ctrl+Enter to make a selection from the path
(no dialog appears).
Right click inside the path, and choose Make Selection (dialog does appear).
I am really amazed and thankful for the great and useful shortcuts. Can you share with me the link to learn other Photoshop shortcuts? Thanks in advance.
tks a million
You saved me. Thanks a lot buddy.
Just in case anyone revisits this old thread...While you will have to use the "Make Selection..." feature from the right click menu (or make your own shortcut as outlined above) to get all the features with converting paths to selections, you can still use the following shortcuts to streamline a few features from the menu:
As mentioned, Ctrl+Enter = Turns path into selection, the following do the same but...
Ctrl+Shift+Enter = Adds To Existing Selection
Ctrl+Alt+Enter = Subtracts from Existing selection
I am getting a problem with ctrl+Enter.
When I close the path and press Ctrl+Enter it selects the path which I select using pen tool but it also selects the whole image.
Please solve the issue . It's irritating.
