Photoshop is a very flexible application, use Photoshop to accomplish the same task numerous ways. For Photoshop users, I think the best way to accomplish a task is very difficult to figure out. This tutorial, we will share 10 need to abandon the bad habit of Photoshop, to help us work more efficiently.

1. Working in a single layer

No matter what the task is completed Photoshop, we usually suggest that you will work distributed on separate layers, rather than all tasks piled on the background layer. Work on a single layer biggest problem is that you can not modify or flexible return. The so-called non-destructive operation, the foundation is to create a new layer for each effect or decoration, and were named, such changes in the future the process will be more simple and flexible.

Whenever possible, use separate layers to edit

2. Remove and not hide

This bad habit is very common Photoshop users. Delete a part of the layer is very destructive editing method. To avoid loss of image content, consider using the following Photoshop features: masks, vector masks or clipping mask. The easiest way is to add a layer mask to hide parts of the layer. And the contents of the mask can temporarily hide selected portions of layers, when the mask is disabled This section will be visible.

3. too many clicks and waste a lot of time

Do not use shortcuts in Photoshop just as crappy soup with a fork. A true Photoshop users should be a hand with a mouse (if it is Wacom tablet pen is a hand), and the other hand operating keyboard. Here I give you should memorize lists of the most useful default shortcuts.
Cmd / Ctrl + T - Free Transform
Cmd / Ctrl + Enter - Confirm the entered text
Cmd / Ctrl + S - save the document
Cmd / Ctrl + A - Select All
Cmd / Ctrl + D - deselect
Cmd / Ctrl + I - inverted colors
Cmd / Ctrl + Shift + I - Invert Selection
Cmd / Ctrl + click on the layer thumbnail - selection based on the layer contents
Cmd / Ctrl + Option / Alt + A - select all layers
Option / Alt + click between the two layers - Clipping Mask
Cmd / Ctrl + G - Layer Group
Cmd / Ctrl + Shift + G - Cancellation group layers

4. Conversion bitmap layers

Most users have heard of Photoshop Smart Objects are and how strong, but not every user often use smart objects. Essentially, when a common layer transformed into a Smart Object layer when, Photoshop image will be embedded in the PSD file as a separate file. It uses an embedded source image changes to render smart objects.

Thanks Photoshop CS2 introduces this technology, so we can be converted to any number of smart objects and does not undermine the image quality. You probably know by recapturing the bitmap image quality is lost when loading the picture of the loss is obvious. That's why the bitmap associated with the resolution.

Smart Objects can not make bitmap nothing to do with the resolution, but it captures an image of the state at the time of conversion. When an image is the largest and highest quality available sizes, the layer is converted to a Smart Object is ideal. After transformed into smart objects, only when changing the image size, will be the loss of image quality. And if not converted into smart objects, even rotate the image will be loss of image quality. In the figure below, I would like to show you a very interesting test, I call "washing machine effect", this experiment shows when continuously rotating bitmap what happened.

5. Do not use an adjustment layer

Do not use adjustment layers in Photoshop is similar when plotted on a single layer of work, it is a big mistake. If you use the option to adjust these adjustments will be applied to the selected layer, so that later they can no longer repair the impact brought about by the Image menu. But if the choice of adjustment layer, because adjustment layer is completely independent of the image layers, so you can well control opacity, blend mode and settings. You should keep in mind that an adjustment layer affects all layers of all associated.

6. No organization, disordered layer

As a Photoshop user, you need to have good organizational skills. By using a separate layer, but also you should learn all the layers properly named and organized. This may seem a waste of time, but please believe that this will save a lot of time for your future work. Especially in a team work, PSD files need to be shared with others, it is particularly important.

Organize your layers

7. destructive use of filters

Photoshop filters when used as a Smart Filter, the image layer is lossless. When using the Smart Filter on a layer, you can easily turn on or off to optimize its settings, opacity and blend mode. You can also add multiple filters on a single smart object, or you can use a smart filter mask to hide or show the effect of the filter on the image layer.

Applying a filter, use Smart Objects

8. The lack of navigation skills

Many Photoshop users to click, drag horizontal and vertical scroll bars instead of the spacebar to access the Hand tool to pan the image. Here are a few need to master in order to shortcuts to quickly navigate a document in Photoshop.
· Space - Hand tool
· Z + drag around - zoom in and out
• Press and hold H + click - Aerial View
· Cmd / Control + 0 - fit the screen size
· Cmd / Control + 1 - actual size

Aerial view: to always see the entire canvas

9. do not use the Bridge

Another thing is a waste of time without the use of Photoshop native file management application: Adobe Bridge. This tool from Photoshop CS2 since they already have, in terms of organization and find an image and project files, this tool can help you save a lot of time. Many photographers also use Bridge to manage their photos, although for a professional photographer, but recommended Lightroom.

10. Do not save PSD file

Never forget to save your work as a PSD file. No more than when the computer crashes, lost a lot more irritating the results of the work. PSD file is your working file, you do not need him to offer your customers, but you should save PSD file, so that when customers need to modify some of the content, you can easily deal with.
