As you work on different projects, it can be helpful to see more than one image at a time in Photoshop. Now obviously I can click on the different tabs here, but I can only see one image at a time when I'm looking at them in this view. I'll select Window > Arrange and I can tile all vertically or horizontally, or I can specify exactly how I want them laid out using these other options. Because I only have three images open, I don't get the options for 4-up or 6-up. Let's go ahead and select the 3-up vertically. Now I can see all three of my images at one time.
If I select another image by clicking on the tab, I can then return to seeing just this one image by selecting Window > Arrange and then Consolidate to Tabs. Now, I probably do this at least 50 times a day, so what I would do is I would go under the Edit menu, come down to my Keyboard Shortcuts. Under the Shortcuts For my Application menus, I would scroll down and find the Window menu, scroll down a little bit more, and then I'm going to enter in keyboard shortcuts to tile all of my images vertically.
And what I usually use is Command+Shift+T, because I don't use Edit > Transform again very often. And then I would accept that, scroll down and enter in another keyboard shortcut for Consolidate All to Tabs, which I usually use Command+Shift+R. The R just for me is easy to remember because it's like I'm returning to a single image. I can accept that and if I wanted to save this, I could click this icon, but for now, we'll just click OK. If we go under the Window menu and look at the menus here, we can see our keyboard shortcuts have been added to Tile our images and Consolidate to Tabs.
So now I just use Command+Shift+T or Ctrl+Shift+T and then Command+Shift+R or Ctrl+Shift+R to go back to the single-image view.
