Some Photoshop Tips from Jibz Actions

More Fun Photoshop Shortcuts.
The following are the Windows shortcuts. For Mac users simply replace the Ctrl with
Command and Alt with Option
Ctrl + 0 - Makes the image fill the workspace
Ctrl + Alt + 0 - Zooms to 100%
Ctrl + + Zooms in
Ctrl + - Zooms out
Ctrl + Home - Takes you to the top left hand corner of the image
Page Down - When you are zoomed in, pressing Page Down will take you exactly one screen down. This seems obvious but I find that it saves time over holding the space bar and dragging the image.
Page Up - Just like above but takes you up a screen
Ctrl + Page Down - This takes you one screen to the right
Ctrl + Page Up - You guessed it. This takes you one screen to the left
Holding the space bar - As mentioned above if you hold down the space bar you can drag your zoomed image location wherever you want.
Ctrl + A - Selects everything in the active layer
Ctrl + D - De-selects everything
Ctrl + H - Hides the selection
Ctrl + Shift + I - Selects the inverse
Ctrl + T - Activates Free Transform for the layer or selection

Chicago Photographer’s Pin-Up Portrait Business

This Chicago photographer has carved out a profitable niche for her business:  Pin Up Photography. “We’re trying to even out the playing field with things we’re bombarded by on a daily basis,” Stumpf said before a shoot. “How women should look in advertising, magazines, billboards. From a very young age we think, ‘I can never be like this’ or ‘How can I be like this?’ We say with the right care, makeup, photography and pose coaching, you can attain what you want.” For the full article, click here.
