First, thanks for this page! I'm a beginner to this whole deal, but I've done a tiny bit in PhotoShop before. One useful shortcut I use is this: you can hold Ctrl and press the + key to zoom in or Ctrl and the - key to zoom out. So, ctrl plus zooms in and ctrl minus zooms out -- works at any time (no need to select the zoom tool).

As a beginner, I have used these two:

control "+" increase the picture in the frame. for example: 50 % to 100%

and control "-" to decrease

control "z" is always helpful too! UNDO! I use it more often than I should! Thanks for the tutorial. I learned photoshop when I was an art major in college but then switched majors and have picked it up again about a year ago. Your tutorial is a good refresher! Thanks!
