I used to know how to reset the tools and settings but is is no longer working for me. I mean holding down the Alt, Ctrl, and Shift. Do you have to do it at the program start. I'm trying to add better photos to my site. Instead of just stock photos. Here it is, my site. Thank you.
Ctrl,Alt,Shift resets the preferences in their entirety, not tool settings. Tool settings are reset by choosing the relevant option in the horizontal toolbar menu. The prefs can also simply be deleted in teh respective folder.
Yes, to reset all tools settings, you can right-click on the tool icon thumbnail in the option bar, and select reset all tools.
