Shortcuts.  I love them!   Today I want to talk about a few favorite Adobe Photoshop shortcuts, and share my accidental find!

We have so many talented layout artists here at theStudio.  Have you looked through our Gallery lately?  I like a lot of different layout styles, but I am particularly fond of clustered frames.
