If you are a fan of the blend modes for layers in Photoshop, you most likely find yourself going through the options in the menu a lot. A quicker way to do this is to use the keyboard shortcut for toggling through the modes.
To go downwards in the list, use Command + Plus (the plus key) or on PC, Control + Plus (again, the plus key). To go upwards, use Command + – (the minus key) or PC, Control + -.
If you are deleting layers by dragging them to the trash can you might want to know about a quicker way to do it. To delete a layer in Photoshop CS4 or later, just press the Delete/Backspace key and if you are using Photoshop CS3 or earlier, you need to have the move tool selected before you press the Delete/Backspace key.
Remember, you can quickly switch to the move tool with the keyboard shortcut V.
