Thanks so much for the shortcuts. About the only ones that I use are Ctrl + S for saving, and Ctrl + T for Transform. I'll have to study this and memorize them. I need something that will help me not use the mouse all the time. Carpal Tunnel, you know.

Thanks, Belle! I've printed it out and plan on playing with them today. When I first started using PS i would never use shortcuts. Now I use some for commands that I use all the time, and what a timesaver! I would love to learn more and you have given me a convenient guide to use. :thanks:
