5 useful tools you didn’t know were in Photoshop | Photoshop Tips

There are so many tools and options in Photoshop. Many of them are hidden, or mainly unknown. Something your only find because someone tells you about them. Over the years I have learned many of these “Mickey Mouse Club Handshakes” and realized that many of today’s Photoshop users are unaware of all these techniques, or maybe just have forgotten about them. I decided to make a video of the 5 most useful tools in Photoshop that I had almost forgotten about. Ok, a couple of them I use all the time, but some, I haven’t used in years.


How many of these did you know? How many didn’t you know, or had forgotten. Let me know if you like this kind of video and I’ll make more of them. Comment below!

    Great Review of the tolls we should know, Colin!

  • chartreusenotobtuse

    Did not know about the droplet. Nice tip #3 about not only seeing all of the image that you had dropped in, beyond original page boundaries (that part I knew), but also revealing it and quickly cropping out rest — that tip will be most useful to me. I am familiar with and use the other 3 tips.

    Love it! The only thing I did not know was droplet! One thing that you might want to talk about is the patch tool! I think many users have trouble with the patch tool when close to another color because it will bleed into what you are patching but I’ve found ways around that!

    ALL of these are just as you said, either I didn’t know of it or I had forgotten it. I didn’t know how to create ‘Droplets’, but, knew of them.
    This format is a good idea! I like it! Very much! Thank you!
