Most Some All Digitalscrapbooking lovers I believe are using Photoshop to create their perfect layout.

I read an post from Jennifer White’s blog re 5 things you can do with the ALT key. But these is for Mac users. I will still post it here because I’m claiming that someday I will be a Mac user too – crossing my fingers and keeping the faith. Sharing it an incite to her post:

    Change foreground color.
    Unlock a background layer. 
    Cycle through tools.
    Make a black layer mask.
