H I A T U S

Vesperarium is currently on hiatus until the Spring. As you all know, the site has been slowing down for the past couple of months, and the Staff has been trying to find ways to spruce up member activity. While some of it has been successful, the Staff has decided to take a little break to regroup and come up with more ideas to make the site more enjoyable for you.

Don't worry though! Vesperarium won't be entirely shut down during the hiatus. We'll be keeping some sections such as the Galleries and Learning forums open for you to use while you wait.

So it's a small good-bye for now, but we hope you'll all join us again in the Spring for our grand re-opening. See you soon!
xoxo Vesperarium Staff

I'm always looking for new keyboard shortcuts when it comes to graphics so I figured that I would make a thread for those who don't necessarily have the time to figure them out on their own.

I know this is not a complete list. These are just the ones that I know and can think of off the top of my head

CTL + J - Duplicate Layer (or if you have an area selected, duplicate selected)
CTL + G - This one's good for vector work. If you've made a rounded corner rectangle, Doing this will "cut off" (visually only...if you move the layer, you'll still have the entire picture) all of the excess. Fantastic for clean lines. With Vectors and ctl+g, Without vectors and ctl+g (It's most visible at the top of the circle.) a.k.a. Clipping Mask (I think)
CTL + E - Merge Layers (with layer below)
CTL + Shift + N - New Layer
CTL + ALT + Shift + E - Stamp Visible. Basically takes everything that's visible and makes it into a single layer. Make sure you have a blank layer highlighted when you do this.
CTL + T - Transform

The below are from Erynne
Alt+Shift+U = greyscale/desaturate an image
Ctrl+F = duplicate last effect (Gaussian Blur, Sharpen, whatever)
Ctrl+Shift+E = merge all layers/flatten image
Ctrl+Shift+G = ungroup a layer from those below it

The below are from the wonderful Counting Sheep
[ - decrease brush size
] - increase brush size
Ctrl+Z - Undo
Ctrl+Y - Redo
Ctrl+A - Select All
Ctrl+I - Invert (makes negatives)
Ctrl+X - Cut (works only if something is selected)
Ctrl+C - Copy (ditto)
Ctrl+V - Paste (works only if something is on the clipboard)
Ctrl+N - New, blank canvas
Ctrl+Shift+I - Invert Selection (works only if something is selected)
Ctrl+U - Opens up hue/saturation window
Ctrl+L - Opens up levels window

More to come...

If you have Windows XP, go to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map. Then choose the character or symbol you want and use the shortcut key or the add to clipboard thing. Snagged this tip from Felicia. happy.gif
