60+ shortcuts for Paint Tool SAI, and 80+ for Photoshop.
You can now customize your tablet’s keys, or just memorize all the shortcuts :iconallthethings2plz:
You also have little tips and comments by the shortcut’s side.
SAI version is 1.1.0, and PS version is CS4, but it should be almost the same for all versions.
I think donwloading will give you a bigger view.

Short anecdote: I got my firt job because I finished the test almost half hour earlier than the other people aspiring for the job; and that's because I knew some basic shortcuts, and they didn't.
Memorizing shortcuts is something I encorage. I even own a wacom with keys on it, and I don’t use them. Try learning one or two at a time if you have problems with them. Just insist!
When you get used to it, you won't have to think wich key you're pressing, you'll be doing it at high speed. It will be like... playing an instrument? Idk, I compare it to that.

This little program was made with Flash on ActionScript 2.0... and it took more time than expected, but it was interesting. And I hope it can be useful for you somehow (:
You also have the aluminum sponges to play with.
Here you have Manu's animations: [link]. And here you can find a really cool flash tutorial with the information necesary to do something similar to the Shortcuts glosary: [link] :thumb214724929:

Please let me know if you find any bugs or gramar mistakes or things you’d change, or in case you remember some important shortcut I missed.

EDIT- DD feature! oAo... Thank you so much for all the comments/favs; and welcome the new watchers, I'm glad you enjoyed the rest of my gallery as to watch me, I appreciate you all! :heart: Have a wonderful new year! -/EDIT


60+ shortcuts para Paint Tool SAI, y 80+ para Photoshop.
Ahora puedes personalizar los botones de tu tableta, o simplemente memorizar todas las shortcuts :iconallthethings2plz:
También tienen pequeños consejos y comentarios al lado de las shortcuts.
La versión de SAI es 1.1.0, y la de PS es CS4, pero debería ser casi lo mismo para otras versiones.
Creo que si se descarga se ve más grande.
Anécdota corta: Conseguí mi primer trabajo porque terminé la prueba casi media hora antes que los demás aspirantes; y eso fue porque conocía algunas shortcuts básicas y ellos no.
Memorizar shortcuts es algo que fomento. Incluso tengo una tableta con botones y no los uso, uso el teclado. Intenta aprender una o dos a la vez si tienes problemas. Sólo insiste!
Cuando te acostumbres no vas a tener que pararte a pensar cuál tecla pulsar, lo vas a hacer a toda velocidad. Va a ser como… tocar un instrumento? No sé, lo comparo con eso.

Este pequeño programa fue hecho en Flash con ActionScript 2.0 para la programación… y tomó más tiempo del que pensaba, pero fue interesante. Espero que le pueda ser útil a alguien (:
También tienen a las esponjas de aluminio para jugar con ellas.
Acá pueden encontrar la animación de Manu: [link]. Y acá encontrarán un tutorial de flash realmente bueno, con información necesaria para crear algo parecido al Glosario de shortcuts: [link] :thumb214724929:
Por favor háganme saber si encuentran algún bug o error ortográfico o alguna cosa que cambiarían, o en caso de que recuerden alguna shortcut importante que me haya salteado.

EDIT- DD! oAo... Muchas gracias por los comentarios y favs; y bienvenidos los nuevos watchers, me alegra que les agradara el resto de mi galería como para watchear, los aprecio mucho a todos! :heart: Que tengan un maravilloso año nuevo! -/EDIT

Some of the shortcuts for SAI works and the others do not :( Do you know why? Does this only work for the most up-to-date SAI or am I supposed to some how reset everything to default? (I didn't mess with the controls when I got it, I'm just wondering if maybe there WAS a way to reset everything to default...
Lumaga Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Which ones don't work?
I was told that the the shortcuts for the main brushes (C V B N M) don't come with the default SAI, I may have set those myself years ago and din't remember, so that would be my mistake x. x

When I alt-click on the eye, it just hides the layer as if I didn't even hold alt? ^^; I've had another issue like this where a friend of mine told me that if I ctrl-alt-clicked on a spot, say an area where I shaded, I would supposedly go to the layer that I shaded on, but that doesn't work for me either. Maybe my laptop has issues with crtl and alt in sai, but i just wanted to make sure that it wasn't my SAI program that had the error ^^;
Lumaga Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Mmm, i'm not sure about the first one, it works for me :c

The second one you tell me, is actually ctrl+leftclick, but you have to first enable that option:…

:( it's okay maybe i have an older version of Sai or it's not too compatible with windows 8..

A few questions: what is "Supr"; and "space" means spacebar, correct?
Lumaga Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh! I think Supr is Delete, I should change "Supr" for "Del". And yep, Space means spacebar.
