ShotKit Just Created an Interactive Keyboard Shortcuts Tool for Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC

by planetMitchLeave a Comment

Over at ShotKit, they've put together an interesting keyboard simulator for LightRoom and Photoshop that shows you dynamically which keys perform actions within those applications.

Now, we've seen keyboards that do this, but my question to you is would this functionality help you be more adept at using your keyboard? Granted it would require having a browser open, but maybe it would be a good training product.

As a keyboard affectionate, I can attest that learning keyboard shortcuts not only saves time, but makes you much more comfortable with what you're doing. Plus it saves you from repetitive stress problems when constantly grabbing for the mouse!

The Lightroom Shortcuts & Photoshop Shortcuts Keyboard

Via ShotKit:

An interactive visualisation of all keyboard shortcuts for Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC.

The Lightroom Shortcuts & Photoshop Shortcuts Keyboard shows you all the shortcuts needed to operate the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan software as efficiently as possible.

The keyboard may look a little confusing at first, but it’s actually very simple to operate.

The main thing that may not be immediately obvious is that you should type on your actual keyboard, as opposed to the virtual shortcuts keyboard above.

How to Operate

  1. Select Adobe Lightroom CC or Adobe Photoshop CC in the drop down menu.
  2. Choose the specific tool set/workspace you require. If you don’t know this, just ignore it.
  3. Choose whether you want to view Lightroom Shortcuts & Photoshop Shortcuts for PC or Mac.
  4. Choose your keyboard language.
  5. Hold down any button highlighted with a border colour (/e/g Ctrl, Alt, Shift, Space etc.) to see all the available shortcut keys associated with it.
  6. Quick Start Guide

The easiest option to use the Lightroom and Photoshop Shortcuts Keyboard is to start typing the action you’d like to perform in the search bar of the shortcuts keyboard and all the available Lightroom or Photoshop shortcuts will appear.

By far the easiest way to use the shortcuts keyboard is to start typing your desired action into the search bar.
