Have you ever wished you could click a button and have Photoshop do your work for you? If you own Photoshop Actions and a Keyboard, it is almost that easy.
You can assign your actions to “F” keys on your keyboard. Most keyboards have 12 F Keys. Some have 15 or more. You can also add in Shift and Control/Command for more possibilities.
To assign an action to an F Key, just double click on the individual action (within the folder).
Then the dialog box shown below will pop up. You just drop down, select a key that is available, click “ok” and you are done. Once you fill your main F Keys, you can do the same thing with SHIFT + and F Key, Control/Command + and F Key and then lastly Shift + Control/Command+ an F Key.
I have my most used actions set to F Keys. It definitely speeds up my workflow.MCP’s Answers to the December FAQs
