🧡 Simple Solution To the 2 Biggest Shortcut Problems

with No Comments

December 12, 2023 | Digital Scrapper News | Volume 21, Issue 50

Hi there!

Especially this time of year, do you find yourself in need of shortcuts in order to save time and manage life? I certainly do.

Problems with Shortcuts
The 2 biggest problems I have with shortcuts are

  1. Remembering what they are.
  2. Remembering to use them.

The Shortcut Solution
Shortcuts in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements are often the hardest to remember because, even though they save you time, they don’t always make sense. Here’s my solution:

  • Write a new-to-you shortcut on a small sticky note.
  • Adhere the sticky note to your laptop or monitor. You may have to use tape!

Here’s the thing…you will never learn a shortcut unless you are consistently seeing it and using it. This solution works for me (and my forgetful memory) and I know it will work for you too!

This Week On the Blog

If you use Adobe Photoshop (not Photoshop Elements), this week on the blog, Jenifer Juris has a quick tip for helping you to assign a keyboard shortcut to something that doesn’t already have one. Very cool.


Coming Up the Next Two Weeks
The next two weeks at Digital Scrapper, we will be laying low for Christmas and spending quality, uninterrupted time with friends and family. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. There will be no regular newsletter next week (December 19) or the week after (December 26). We will resume normal newsletter content on Tuesday, January 2, 2024.
  2. I will be checking in on you once a day to make sure you’re not struggling. But if your question or problem can wait until after Christmas, please wait to email me.
  3. Community is open 24/7 and help can always be found there! I love our Community!!
  4. Our greatest days are just ahead.

Love and creative success,

Jen White, Owner of Digital Scrapper & QwikLearn

Boogie Testimonial
“At 83, I have decided to restart this fun hobby. Today I located an early Black Friday sale that wasn’t teacher-only and bought PSE 2024. For the first time in my life, I downloaded & installed a computer program. That is my Tuesday Boogie, although it took much longer than 15 minutes.”
