Photoshop can be a daunting piece of software when you first try it out so one way to get more comfortable using it is to use keyboard shortcuts. This helps being able to make the software do certain basic functions so that you don’t have to hunt and peck in the menus or toolbars to find where to click.
Give these a try and once you get these nailed down I am certain you will look to put more shortcuts in your arsenal. Check out the link below for more options.
