The Lightroom Shortcuts & Photoshop Shortcuts Keyboard
The keyboard may look a little confusing at first, but it’s actually very simple to operate.
The main thing that may not be immediately obvious is that you should type on your actual keyboard, as opposed to the virtual shortcuts keyboard above.
How to Operate
- Select Adobe Lightroom CC or Adobe Photoshop CC in the drop down menu.
- Choose the specific tool set/workspace you require. If you don’t know this, just ignore it.
- Choose whether you want to view Lightroom Shortcuts & Photoshop Shortcuts for PC or Mac.
- Choose your keyboard language.
- Hold down any button highlighted with a border colour (/e/g Ctrl, Alt, Shift, Space etc.) to see all the available shortcut keys associated with it.

[Disclaimer: the inspiration for this Photoshop Shortcuts Keyboard was taken from a version originally created by Fast Print. Since the Fast Print version is now out of date, and the functionality of the keyboard is all open source, I decided to build a newer, more up to date version for 2017. If you enjoy it, please share it with your friends!]
