I use the clone stamp and the brush tool regularly. Each of these tools provides a Mode: dropdown list to select from in their menu bar.
The drop down options I use most frequently are Lighten and Darken. I would like to create short cuts to Lighten and Darken, such as Ctrl+Shift+L (Lighten) and Ctrl+Shift+D (Darken).
The tools panel menu bar does not appear to have a selection list in the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog box.
How do I create these shortcuts.
Thank you in advance,
They are already there. The same shortcuts that affect layer blend modes when other tools are selected, do exactly the same thing when the Brush; Clone, Healing Brush, Blur, Sharpen and Smudge tools are selected. (I forgot the gradient tool)
So with the Move tool or a Marquee selected
Shift Alt + scrolls down through the selected blend modes
Shift Alt - scrolls up through the selected blend modes
Your can go directly to specific Blend modes with first letters
Shift Alt n = Normal
Shift Alt m = Multiply
Shift Alt s = Screen
Now select the brush, or one of the tools that have blend modes, and the same keys will do the same job for that tool's blend mode.
Thanks - Problem solved
