To start working faster, just click over to shortcutfoo.com and select the type of editor or software you’re interested in learning more about. Shortcutfoo offers Vim, Sublime, Emacs, TextMate, VisualStudio, Xcode, Command Line, and Photoshop. Hit the Photoshop button, and you’ll be taken to a tutorial and invited to practice some basic Photoshop toolbar shortcuts.
