    great tut, would be the greatest if tempo of showing things was slowed down a bit. As English is not my language, it is sometimes difficult to follow

    I didn't know the cmd+Shift+z to keep going back through undo's! Hahaha. I'm a knob.

    Found the file>scripts tip particularly useful :), always wondered if there was a way to do this, merge visible using the tab and drop-down menu will be useful

    Is there a shortcut for moving objects to the center?

  24. G Pritiranjan Das Avatar

    Great man! You made learning fun. Keep it going.

    Such a useful video, not necessarily because I need the shortcuts but because I often do things by accident and I've never know what I've done. Turns out Caps Lock and Tab are the culprits!

    I know what ctrl+z do, but I didn't know what those chicks where doing there!

  27. _sygo Avatar

    Doing informative photoshop tutorials is difficult. Making entertaining and genuinly funny videos in aswell is even more rare on Youtube these days.
    You've managed to perfect it!
