Cheers for this! I use CS4 every day and automatically use my regular shortcuts but this will be so useful for the less used.

Yeah, CS6 came out last month. Makes me feel old - I've been using Photoshop since version 2. :)

90% or more will be exactly the same. I've been using CS5 for the past year or so - I'll need to do an updated CS5 tutorial when I get some time. Have a great day!

I'm sure you have them. Most of the tools in your toolbar on the left of the screen (default location) have a tiny black triangle in the lower right corner. If you click and hold for a second on the triangle, a submenu of other tools will pop open. :) Hope this helps.

Photoshop is pretty expensive - I just spent several thousand dollars for a few CS5 licenses for my computer labs. However, Photoshop Elements will do almost as much for under $100.

oh my that is a bit high for me. I have elements 5 that I got with my digital pen and use that sometimes only because I dont know how it works...:)

Photoshop Elements 8 - the newest version - has a lot more features than 5 did, and includes a lot of features that only Photoshop had before. If you're interested I can point you to some Photoshop Elements training and tutorials.

that sounds great. I have been looking. I havent even mastered 5 so a newer version will confuse me more. I need simple...:)

I had some of my employees create tutorials last summer for the university. I'd be happy to share them with you.

There are a bunch of Photoshop Elements tutorials there (For version 7) - but each one only covers one idea. You may find them useful...

Have a great day.

I have PS CS4, but I didn't use it very often, because it is different from CS3.
Anyway maybe it sounds stupidly, but I noticed many people don't like this version.

You're welcome. I hope you find it useful. I've gathered some good Photoshop tutorial videos together here ([link]). I've enjoyed CS4, and found it more useful than CS3. I've just ordered CS5 and am looking forward to some of the new features that release will bring.
