You can click and drag the cursor over a block of text to select it, but that’s not always the most efficient way. Sometimes a text thread spans across multiple pages, or you almost highlight all the text you need but come up a few words or characters short. An easier way is to insert the cursor in the text block and click the right number of times to get the selection you desire. For example click your cursor anywhere in a word, then:
Whether you’re painting or masking with the Brush tool, one thing holds true: You often need to zoom way in for precision pixel control, but then zoom back out to get a big-picture preview. But switching between the Brush and Zoom tools so frequently will disrupt your painting groove. Not to worry. You can swap tools and remain efficient with a simple keyboard combination.
First, you need to enable Scrubby Zoom: Choose the Zoom tool and select Scrubby Zoom on the Tool Options bar. Now, select the Brush tool and get painting. To zoom in while using the Brush tool, press and hold [command][Space Bar] ([Ctrl][Space Bar] in Windows) to temporarily switch to the Zoom tool. Drag to the right to zoom in or to the left to zoom out. Release the keys to resume using the Brush tool.
If you’ve ever needed to apply the same adjustment layer to multiple images, you may have gotten frustrated opening each one, adding the adjustment layer(s) and configuring the settings. For example, maybe you have a batch of images all shot under the same lighting that need the same Exposure adjustment. You don’t have to configure each one individually, because there’s a more clever way to accomplish this: Drag the adjustment layer from one image to another to copy it. Open the first image, add an adjustment layer, and configure the settings. Next, open a second image and arrange the two image windows side by side. Then, with the original image active, click the adjustment layer from the layers panel, and drag and drop it on the second open image. Repeat for each image to which you want to apply the adjustment!
