Simple Photoshop Keyboard for Artists

SO EASY!


I'm sharing my Photoshop keys, I draw using a tablet monitor, and since it has no expresskeys
I've found autohotkey a great solution.

(Make sure numlocks and caplocks are off, i set the script up with them off.)

There are two adjustments you'll need to change from the
photoshop keyboard shortcuts menu.

1. Zoom In:
Applications Menus/View/Zoom In (Change to Ctrl 0)

2. Undo Redo:
Applications Menus/Edit/Step Forward (Ctrl R)
Applications Menus/Edit/Step Backward (Ctrl Z)

*Note (Make sure you run both Photoshop and Hotkeys As Administrator by right clicking and selecting "Run as Administrator" to open.)

... I like that 'custom keyboard'... :D :D
Not perfect, but a lot cheaper than a Popularis or the awesome Optimus Tactus - when I saw that one about 8 years ago, I got flashed...

*note to myself: search for 'tablet computer as usb keyboard'*

Great Idea! Thanks for sharing!

I made something like this for InDesign using extendscript - only it is an extra little panel full of zoom control buttons (since CS6 took away the zoom panel [scum!]).
