Option (Mac) / Alt (Win) will toggle between the Dodge and Burn tools – without changing the brush size ( which is what happens if you actually select the other tool using the Tool panel or the shortcut Shift + O).

    I actually use the this trick quite often myself while combining it with the shortcut for changing the size [ (makes it smaller) ] (makes it larger). This saves me a lot of time when working with Photo Manipulation in particular when I want to build up the definition of an image. Combined with a b/w overlay layer duplicate you can get something really nice that “pops” off the page.
