Now I would like you to load a few custom keyboard shortcuts that I have created for you. You may find that you like them; you may find that you don't like them. You can always reset them to the Photoshop defaults, if you don't like them or you can even modify them if you like.
So here is what I want you to do. Go to the Edit menu and choose this command down here Keyboard Shortcuts or you can press Ctrl+Shift+K or Command+Shift+K on the Mac in order to bring up the Keyboard Shortcuts and Menus dialog box and notice by default, these are set, the keyboard shortcuts are set to Photoshop Defaults.
Now if you have done any of my other Photoshop series, my other Total Training Series then you may have this option set to Deke Keys or Deke Keys CS2 or something along those lines. Well for you advance users; I have created something even better. Go ahead and bring up the popup menu for Set here and notice that I have created this new set that should have been installed when you installed the Project Files on to your machine that's called Deke Keys CS2 Advanced.
If you are not seeing it and you have installed the files, you may need to restart Photoshop. Go ahead and quit Photoshop and start the application up again, so that it will load the option to load these keyboard shortcuts.
So as I say you want the advanced keyboard shortcut, because they go above and beyond the standard Deke Keys set. So go ahead and choose Deke Keys Advanced here and you will load a bunch of new keyboard shortcuts including for example, if I go to the Edit menu and I am going to scroll down the Edit menu a little bit here you will see that I have given keyboard shortcuts right here for changing the Profiles, the Color Profiles that are assigned to an image.
So you can assign a different profile by pressing Shift+F1 or you can convert an image from one color profile to another by pressing Shift+F2 and these are things that I don't include. These are keyboard shortcuts that I do not include with my standard CS2 shortcuts. If you decide to make modifications, feel free to do so. Just click on the shortcut you want to change, enter a new keyboard shortcut and you can use this little option to save it under New Name to save your custom keyboard shortcuts under your own name for example or you can just save over mine if you prefer.
Alright, I am pretty happy with the ones I have set up. So I will just go ahead and choose them and then I am going to go over to the OK button here and click OK in order to accept those new keyboard shortcuts.
