Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Color picker keyboard shortcut, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- So when we are working on the digital canvas,…we will frequently need to open up…the Color Picker and change…our color selection,…open it up again,…changing the color,…pressing "ok"…and this can become a little bit tedious…after some time, always going to the tool bar,…hitting this color swatch, opening up the Color Picker,…and there is actually a faster way to do that.…
You can set up a shortcut to open up…the Color Picker at any time,…and there's no preset shortcut for that…so we have to do it on our own…but that's no problem.…Under "edit, keyboard shortcuts"…we make sure that we are in the category "tools"…and we scroll down, down, down, down…pretty much at the bottom…and there we find the Foreground Color Picker.…
Now, we want to set a very easy shortcut for that.…I like to use "C"…I get a little warning here that the shortcut "C"…is already in use for the crop tool,…but I don't use the "crop" tool too much.…I don't need a shortcut for that…so I will just accept it…and hit "ok" and from now on…whenever I hit "C" on the keyboard…
