blend mode shortcuts for Mac
on Nov 3, 2005 at 9:20:23 pm

Hello,

I have been working with photoshop on pcs for a very long time, but I just recently started working on the Mac version.

I used to change blend modes on the PC by selecting one of the modes and using the up/down arrow to choose the one I wanted. Sometimes I need to try different modes quickly and that was the fastest way to do it.

I cant change them on the Mac using the up/down arrow, so I was wondering if there is a shortcut that would give me the next/previous blend mode. I know the shortcuts for each of them, but I just wanted to know if there is one that will give me the next or previous blend mode on the list.

Hope this makes sense, and appreciate any help

thanks
renato

You're welcome... check out my book for more on blend modes and don't forget you can access them in filters right after running the filter by choosing Edit>Fade (must be next step)

Hi Richard,

Thanks again for your help and kindness. I actually added your book to my wishlist at amazon a long time ago but things have been pretty crazy in the last few months so its hard to find time to study..

Hope I can find time to read it in the near future. And thanks for taking your time with such a simple question.

kind regards
renato

I have a soft spot for people who actually appreciate Blend Modes...
they do so much yet so few people know how to use them....
