    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.

    Yes:

    Menu>Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts

    Then:

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

    started a topic keyboard shortcut for Levels/curves

    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

    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...

    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.
