There’s no perfect substitute for Adobe Photoshop. It is hands down one of the best programs for image editing. Despite all its stupidity, it is a rather complex application with tons of options. Mastering Photoshop takes a lot of time and dedication.
In order to increase your Photoshop workflow and make it more productive, here are some tips and tricks you can use:
- Cloning Photoshop layers and styles
Did you just spend a whopping amount of time making your layer and style perfect? Rather than going through all the pains of adding the same style to another layer, just clone it.
For accessing Layer Styles, you need to right-click on the chosen later and choose Blending Options from the pop-out menu. In order to clone a layer, right-click on the layer that you wish to clone and select Copy Layer Style. After that, go to the second layer, right-click on it and choose Paste Layer Style.
- Resizing photos in bulk
Do you want to resize a number of images? Rather than resizing all of them individually, you can do it in bulk.
- Just click on the File tab and selects Scripts. Click on Image Processor, and a number of options will be provided.
- You can select a whole folder.
- Click on the Select Folder button and choose the folder.
- Check if you wish to include the sub-folders as well.
- Choose where you wish to save the processed pictures, and then move on to selecting the File Type.
- Check the box next to Resize to fit.
- Hit the Run button after making all the adjustments.
- Efficiently choose a Photoshop layer
If your creation contains several layers, then it may be tiring to keep scrolling to locate the one you need. Well, here’s how you can instantly access the layer:
- Go to the Tools menu and select the Move option. You can also press the V key from the keyboard.
- Go to the menu in the upper portion of the window and enable Auto-Select. After that, select the Layer from the pull-down menu.
- Click on the item you wish to select, and it will become the active layer.
