Are you a designer by choice or by your passion? Have you recently completed one of your projects and thought, if you had some more time, you would have done something better.
The truth is that designers are artistic in nature and they feel contented with the designs, hero images, effects, and much more that they add to make your photo attractive.
So, if you are a designer by profession, and asking your boss to extend your project deadline, it is better to focus on some alternative ways that can design your projects sites at a faster rate.
Since most of the people use Photoshop tool to design an outstanding image, we would discuss some unique ways that can really help a designer create website design faster:
1. Undo Multiple Times.
Undo option to clear off the mistake that you did last time. In Photoshop, when you press undo option, your last action will be deleted and if the same button is pressed one more time, you will come back to the original state. This is quite a troublesome option.
If you want to undo multiple time, you can press the buttons Alt + Ctrl + Z.
2. Use Eyedropper.
If you come across a nice website but wonder which colors are used? And you want to use the same color again, launch color picker to pick the hex number of that color and then input the hex number in the color pallet provided in the Photoshop. This is rather a complex task.
Now Photoshop has Eyedropper tool. You can activate it by pressing I on the screen of the Photoshop and bring Eyedropper icon by dragging to get the color of your choice.
3. Organize Your Files.
Make sure you organize your files so that they are easy to locate and use whenever required. The File name should be given according to the type of that particular file so that you don’t have to face any problems at later stages.
4. Take Snapshots.
Snapshots form one of the best ways to recall what you created last time. These are just the temporary files and if you want to permanently save it, keep it in a folder.
5. Using Smart Objects
To perform filtering and non-destructive transformations. Once you create a layer in smart object, its original quality is maintained.
6. Select Element Layer.
Move tool is used to activate element layer. Use V key, holding Ctrl key will automatically select the element layer.
7. Add or subtract Any Selection.
Holding the shift key and add or subtract option allow you to add or subtract one or more selected items at the same time.
8. Learn Keyboard Shortcuts by Heart.
You can quickly move from one element to other or from one layer to other and do much more tasks that are otherwise difficult or involves lots of steps. Learning shortcuts will save your time.
So, now that you know 8 simple ways and shortcuts that you can use in Photoshop, hopefully, you can create amazing designs for the upcoming website projects.
