Keys for selecting tools in Photoshop

Keys for selecting tools

    * Not in ImageReady

    ImageReady only

    *In Photoshop, shortcuts are customizable by using the Keyboard Shortcuts command. Choose Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts.

    Mac OS X users: In ImageReady, when the Use System Shortcuts preference is enabled, certain ImageReady keyboard shortcuts are usurped by OS X keyboard shortcuts. (For example, with the preference on, Command + H hides the application. With the preference off, Command + H shows/hides Extras.) To prevent this, press the Control key in addition to the shortcut or choose ImageReady > Preferences > General and deselect Use System Shortcuts.
