Some panels, such as the Levels options panel, which is located in the Image menu, then Adjust, then Levels - this panel is very important for Photoshop users - you cannot save the changes you make to it if you want to apply the same changes to your work again, which wastes effort and time!

There is a way for you to use the last change you made on the panel, which is to press the ALT key while you click on the Image menu, then Adjust, then Levels. You will find that the changes you made are present, so apply them again. The shortcut for the Levels panel is Ctrl + L, and if you add ALT, that is, you will press Ctrl + Alt + L to shorten, go to the menu, then Image, then Adjust, then Levels.

When the Move Tool is used and you have a lot of layers, place your mouse on the drawing, press the Shift key and the right mouse button. A list of all the layers you have will appear for you to choose from which you want to move. If you choose the layer and want to move the layer by 10 pixel movements ) Press the Ctrl button with the arrows on the keyboard to speed up the movement. You will find that the laser jumps in 10-pixel movements.

Pattern Stamp Tool

To access this tool, press the letter S, then hold down Shift, then press the letter S again,,, or click with the mouse on the small triangle in the stamp tool icon. Another stamp tool will appear with a misleading base.

Using this tool, you can repeat a shape or pattern to fill any image or any background you want. To do this, follow the following:

  1.  Open the image from which you want to transfer the shape or pattern.
  2. Select the desired shape using the rectangular selection tool.
  3. From the Edit menu, choose Define Pattern
  4. Open the image to which you want to transfer the shape or pattern.
  5. Choose the Pattern Stamp Tool and repeat the pattern as you wish.

If you want to enlarge the drawing a little without entering the Image Size, read the following:

  1. Choose the Corp tool or press the C button
  2. Press the Ctrl button with the plus sign + to zoom in on the drawing area once or twice
  3. Make a selection for the entire drawing. You will find that the selection has 8 squares
  4. Now I work on expanding the squares until they reach the size to which I want to enlarge the drawing
  5. Now press Enter on the keyboard
  6. You will find that the image has been enlarged - and the part that was enlarged is dyed in the background color

Have you ever thought about determining the drawing by half, a quarter, 10%, or any percentage value because you do not like to calculate the length and width of the drawing in order to choose a section from it or cut a specific size from it with a specific value?

Read the following:

  1. In the Info panel (you can find it in the Window menu, then Show Info), you will find four fields in the panel, of which we are interested in the right part from the bottom.
  2. Click on the black arrow located at the top right of the panel, then choose Palette Options from the menu
  3. The Info Options panel will appear, including Mouse Coordinates
  4. Choose from the Present menu, then Ok
  5. You will notice that the ruler has changed to a percentage - if there is no ruler, press Ctrl + R
  6. Now select from the drawing what you want. Look at the Info panel. You will see that the numbers are spoken in percentages (and you may use Guides and the ruler to determine the numbers more accurately)
