Favorite Photoshop Shortcuts

5 years ago I had used Photoshop very little, mostly for websites and random illustrations.  Now 5 years later, I practically live in Photoshop & After Effects. With tight deadlines and multiple projects, it’s crucial for me to be as fast as I can be.  One thing that I’ve found that’s sped me up greatly is learning Photoshop shortcut keys.

Here is a list of my most used shortcut keys in no particular order. Did I miss any useful ones?
