Photoshop Shortcut CommandsWelcome back to TechBusket. Do you know that the key features of Photoshop can be controlled by using Keyboard Shortcuts?  Today we have collected a list of Photoshop Shortcut Commands.

Tab (Hide/Show Palettes) — Hiding the palettes gives you a little more working room, thus decreasing your need to pan and zoom while editing.

Z (Zoom Tool) — This command brings up the zoom tool, which allows you to zoom in and if you hold down the Alt key, it temporarily switches to the zoom out mode.

Ctrl + 0 (Fit on Screen) — This command is used to get the entire photo in front of your eyes. That’s Ctrl + zero, not the letter “O”.
