Update! Click here (20 Brush and Painting Tool Shortcuts in Photoshop CC) to see twenty of my favorite tips related to brushes and painting in Photoshop CC in a single post.

As Photoshop offers more features and tools, I find it useful to save not only panel locations for different tasks, but also sets of keyboard shortcuts. For example, when working with painting, I can remove some of the shortcuts that I might use for accessing other tools and assign them to brushes instead. (perhaps I don’t use Quick Mask or the Quick Selection tools while painting, I can assign “Q” to Load Mixer Brush and “W” to Clean MIxer Brush). To save keyboard shortcuts, select Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts and click the save icon next to the Set option. Then, save the set as a part of your workspace (Window > Workspace > New Workspace, then capture Keyboard Shortcuts).
