Blend Modes Photoshop Hotkey

On this super quick video portrait photographer Nathaniel Dodson (from the website tutvid) shows a really simple trick for using a hot-key to switch between blend modes in Photoshop.

This video is extremely simple but very useful – if you want to scroll quickly between blend modes in Photoshop all you need to do is to press shift plus (forward) or shift minus (backwards) – to quickly toggle between all the different modes.

If you are interested in blend modes we highly recommend watching the video understanding blending modes in Photoshop especially if you are unfamiliar with the subject of blend modes (its a really useful introduction by Jesús Ramirez).
