While working on Project 3, I came across a very useful shortcut: ⌘+F
Suppose you’re applying a Stylization Filter to several layers, the workflow might look something like this:
- Select the top layer
- Click on Filter from the menubar
- From the dropdown menu, select the desired Filter
- Make adjustments, preview, apply
- Select the next layer, and repeat
One of the neat features of Photoshop is that it remembers your choices, and keeps track of all of the changes you make to your image. You can quickly apply the same Filter to multiple layers by simply selecting the Layer, and pressing ⌘+F. This will apply the last used filter with the same settings. It’s much, much faster than navigating between Layers, and Filter menus.
