In this tutorial we are going to look at one of the most common tasks performed in photoshop:

Copy and paste.

As you create in Photoshop and work with multiple documents.. you will be performing this task a lot to build your artwork. To copy and paste, is a simple task, but as a beginner, it will help to know how to perform this task.

In this video I will also be demonstrating a useful way to transfer creative elements from one document to another.






V - Move tool

L - Lasso tool


cmd (Ctrl PC) + C - Copy

cmd (Ctrl PC) + V - Paste

cmd (Ctrl PC) + N - New document

cmd (Ctrl PC) + D - Deselect Selection


Press & hold cmd (Ctrl PC) + click - Select multiple individual layers



In this video tutorial, I will be using Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 for mac. Almost all of the principles demonstrated and covered will apply to future and previous versions. Some differences may apply if you are using a previous or future version.
