right..I'm using Adobe Photoshop (2.0 if you must know…i need to buy a slightly more up-to-date one me thinks :? ) and was wondering if there was anywhere I could find a handy list of keyboard shortcuts just to make colouring and general comic making a bit faster.
Any links to sites etc. would be grand :D

Photoshop 2.0? Wow, that's so old any advice I might give you could be totally wrong, the program has changed so much.

In the menu of most photoshops I've worked with (3.0 and up, I've never used 2.0) each command feature a code next to it suggesting the keyboard shortcut.

Basic short cuts:

General: (command) + x = cut _______ (command) + c = copy _______ (command) + v = paste _______ (command) + q = quit _______ (command) + w = close window _______ (command) + p = print screen or document

Basic photoshop shortcuts (may or may not work with 2.0): (command) + z = undo _______ (command) + a = select all _______ (command) + d = deselect _______ (command) + n = new document _______ (command) + k = open preferances

A caveat with regards to upgrading to more recent versions: Photoshop 2.0 is small and lean compared to later versions - if your computer isn't new or souped up, you may not enjoy comparable performance with the more recent software, which is far more demanding of computer resources.

I'm using windows XP at the moment, and I think I know someone who has a more up to date version of photoshop that they don't use- so I may have to ‘borrow’ it…
The shortcuts are pretty much the same- much thanks for the deselect one because that has been driving me insane. although ctrl D …i should have figured that one out :lol:

wow, that's seriously old.

I dunno if my commands would work for yours..

but the one I like to use the most is:

Ctrl+U (it's that color code slider thingy where you can adjust the color of a picture if you don't like it)
I'm on hitatus while I redo one of my webcomics. Be sure to check it out when I'n done! :)

Well I googled it for you and this site came up that I thought was pretty nifty.

They have the ones I use in there. Unfortunately for me, I found out a lot of shortcuts by accidently hitting the wrong keys and then spending a while doing a combination of buttons to see what caused whatever it was to happen. Oooh. Run-on sentence.

Everything before 5 is a mystery to me, I realize this software must have existed but finding traces of it on the internet seems next to impossible.

I feel so old…I mean jeebus- i'm only 14. Ah well, I'll hit some of the function buttons and see what happens. Thanks for the help.
