  • keyboard shortcut for Levels/curves

    quick question here.

    So, Command L = Levels
    Command M = Curves

    But these shortcut commands apply only to the layer you are on and don't create a stand alone layer like going to adjustments and choosing levels and/or curves.

    is there a way I can change this so when I click Command L, I get a Levels layer by itself etc?

    thanks Kyle

    Yes:

    Menu>Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts

    Then:

    Layer>New Adjustment Layer, and enter your keyboard shortcuts overriding the default.

        The only problem is that you then can't run curves and levels on your masks, which can be useful. (Or, not without creating new shortcuts for that.) So instead I make an action for my most used adj layers and assign them a hot key. Curves = F1, HSL = F2, Sel Col = F3, etc.

        That way I have the default shortcuts to run directly on masks and hot keys for adjustment layers.

            Best way IMO. You'll still need the ability to create a baked Curve or Levels and I think it's good practice to just get used to default shortcuts, that way it's the same no matter what computer you jump on and your workflow isn't impeded.

              Modifying a Curves adjustment layer?-repost
              by mamdac
              I tried to submit this last week as a new thread, but it never appeared. Excuse me if you've seen it before.

              I am a new user of HPPE tools. I successfully created a Curves adjustment, accepted its modifications, and went on to do other editing of the photo. I then wanted to adjust the...

              I downloaded a photoshop action and at some point the action adds a curves adjustment layer, with a name different from the default, with clipping mask active and with the points in the curves changed.

              I know that by pressing the Alt key i get extra options but i cant change the points...

              I've been thinking about a new (I think) technique, but it requires multiple curve adjustment layers. Thinking used to be that multiple curve adjustments was a destructive workflow. But lately I've seen it more and more in high-end workflows.

              Did this used to be bad with curves adjustments...

              Shortcut for Layer Switching
              by galvaros
              Dear all

              Is there a photoshop keyboard shortcut to switch the currently selected layer in the layer stack? I.e. one shortcut for "one layer up", one shortcut for "one layer down".

              The use would be this: quickly switching between the dodge and burn curve...

              Curve Adjustments
              by T Paul
              The PhotoShop Curves command is an extremely handy tool.

              Get to know it. You can do so much with it.


              When you open an image, it might not be perfect. The Curves command is an excellent way to correct color and exposure, improve tone and revive details.
