PhotoFlow keyboard shortcuts

The latest versions of PhotoFlow comes with few handy keyboard shortcuts. The list of implemented shortcuts is still rather small and, more importantly, the shortcuts cannot (yet) be customized, however this is a first step toward a better usability of the program.

The currently available shortcuts are all related to operations with layers:


  • Ctrl+Shift+N: add a new layer
  • Ctrl+Shift+G: add a new layer group
  • Ctrl+Shift+D: delete the selected layer(s)
  • Ctrl+Shift+C: copy the selected layer(s) to the photoflow clipboard
  • Ctrl+Shift+X: cut the selected layer(s) to the photoflow  clipboard
  • Ctrl+Shift+V: paste the layer(s) from the photoflow  clipboard
  • Ctrl+Shift+O: open an existing preset (will be inserted above the selected layer)
  • Ctrl+Shift+S: save the selected layers as a preset
  • Ctrl+Shift+M: switch the current layer to "mask view mode"
  • Ctrl+Shift+L: switch the current layer to "layer view mode"


Under OSX, the Ctrl modifier key must be replaced with Cmd.

The complete and up-to-date documentation of keyboard shortcuts can be found at any time in the PhotoFlow wiki.
