Greased Lightnin': Way Cool Tips > THE GAUSSIAN BLUR KEYBOARD SHORTCUT

THE GAUSSIAN BLUR KEYBOARD SHORTCUT

I thought that would get your attention. That's because you know there's no keyboard shortcut for applying a Gaussian Blur. But there is in my copy of Photoshop CS. How is that possible? Because I created one, and you can too. Just go under the Edit menu and choose Keyboard Shortcuts to bring up the Keyboard Shortcuts editor. Then, from the Shortcuts For pop-up menu, choose Application Menus. In the list of menus in the window beneath it, click on the gray, right-facing triangle next to Filter to reveal all the choices under the Filter menu. Scroll down to Gaussian Blur, then click on the name. This brings up a field where you can enter the shortcut by pressing the keys you want to use. I recommend using Shift-Option-Command-G (PC: Shift-Alt-Control-G) because there are so few shortcuts not already being used by Photoshop. Click OK, and not only is the shortcut activated but your custom shortcut now appears in the Filter menu to the right of Gaussian Blur.
