Keyboard Shortcuts for Photoshop Desktop

Did you know Photoshop has a large list of keyboard shortcuts you can use to save time? These shortcuts are really handy and can save you from having to navigate the menus with multiple mouse clicks.  I've added some of my favorite basic shortcuts below, but you can check out the entire list to see which ones you want to use. You can even define custom shortcuts if you have the need: Customize keyboard shortcuts. To view, edit, and summarize keyboard shortcuts in the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog box, select Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts or you can use these keyboard shortcuts: Alt + Shift + Control + K (Win) or Option + Shift + Command + K (Mac).

 

If you want a PDF copy, you can download the full list of keyboard shortcuts here: Photoshop keyboard shortcuts PDF, or view the complete list online here: Photoshop keyboard shortcuts

OK, ces raccourcis ont dรฉcrits pour un clavier amรฉricain QWERTY,

Mais pour les claviers suisse romands sur macOS, les [] ne sont pas accessible, la barre oblique inverse est innaccessible etc.. ..
Merci de nous donner les รฉquivallents avec nos claviers QWERTZ et AZERTY etc
