Sunday Shortcuts...The Finale
This weekend I was reminded of the seamless beauty of the circle of life. New lives begin, old ones die. With each loss opportunity awaits for life anew.
This is what happens when your favorite location for a photo-hike happens to be in a 260 acre cemetery!
But this is no ordinary cemetery. It is Forest Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo, NY.
Forest Lawn Cemetary. Buffalo History Preserved
Eternal resting place to a U.S. President, a rock star, countless millionaires, artists, world explorers, and pioneers of industry.
But it's not so much the who's but the what's that make this place special.
The what's include: a picturesque lake, rivers and bridges, over 200 species of birds, flowering trees, hills. Art carvings, stained glass, and bronze statuary well suited to honor these residents who have earned their place in history.
At this point you may be wondering,
"Bob, this is all very fascinating, but where are the Sunday Shortcuts?"
Which brings me exactly to my point.
As I pondered life's mysteries while watching and photographing this lovely goose with her new chick, a new life was hatched for Sunday Shortcuts as well.
Rather than dole them out piecemeal fashion, I can offer you printouts of ALL the keyboard shortcuts for your exact version of Photoshop. As an example, I have in my hand ALL the shortcuts for Photoshop 7...and it is a full two pages of 6 pt type!
Best of all...you can get your very own copy of ALL the keyboard shortcuts for your Photoshop version FREE with Pack 2 of the Photoshop Tip Cards.
But only through this special link:
Once I'm notified of your request, I'll send you a personal email to determine what version of Photoshop you are using. Then, I'll pull that Keyboard shortcut printout to send along with your Photoshop Tip Cards Pack 2.
So as we close the book on Sunday Shortcuts, as it fades from life, new life is given to the Shortcuts Printout.
I think you'll find it quite valuable. But since Photoshop House of Cards is about what's helpful for you, click on the comment section below and let me know what YOU would like to have.
And certainly...you can have both!
I'll never know unless you tell me! So be sure to leave a comment below.
But so you don't leave without at least one keyboard shortcut today:
When you turn ON the Caps lock, you enable precise cursor movement. That lets you have a finer control when using the MOVE tool. But here's a companion tip. If you forget to turn OFF Caps lock, your brushes will not be normal. They'll still work, but you won't be able to see the coverage area prior to the action...and you'll be scratching your head as to why.
Here's what you need to do:
1. Sign up today to receive your FREE Photoshop Tip Cards Pack 1 if you are not already a member.
2. Click on the link above to get Photoshop Tip Cards Pack 2 and the bonus Shortcuts Printout.
