Shortcut for "Image Size" in Photoshop Mac?

Asked by Evan (805 points ) July 24th, 2009

I’m using Photoshop CS on Mac OSX 10.4 and I’m wondering if there is anyway to use the keyboard keys to access the “image size” window in Photoshop. The comparison in Windows would be that you can hold down the “alt” key, and hit [i] and then [i] again (taking you into the [i]mage menu, then selecting the [i]mage size option). I realize it must be something simple, but i haven’t found a comparable shortcut, and when editing multiple pictures, it becomes uber frustrating after a while to constantly have to keep using the mouse, whereas I wouldn’t need to on a Windows machine.

In newer versions of CS, it’s Command-Option-I. I don’t know about CS1 but it’s worth a shot.

For menu commands that don’t have a built-in keyboard shortcut, you can assign your own in System Preferences>Keyboard & Mouse>Keyboard Shortcuts.

@Evan and when editing multiple pictures, it becomes uber frustrating after a while to constantly have to keep using the mouse, whereas I wouldn’t need to on a Windows machine.

Learn to use actions! You can record a number of steps, for example Resize—> Save as copy—> Close, and give that set of actions your own shortcut. It’s the perfect way for dealing with multiple files.

@fireside – That is a great reference but none of them are working for me and I am using CS on a Intel Mac also. Wonder why they won’t???

@rooeytoo – Good question. I am on a PC so I couldn’t even est it to see if they worked.

In 2003 I bought a tool of Logitech called: NuLooQ (they don’t offer it no more) but it works with every app even in Leopard (Mac OS Latest version) so Every command I launch it from that tool. so… I don’t recall any commands no more lol

I don’t know about CS, but in CS3 it’s Shift + Option + Command + I.

It didn’t work for me in CS and I almost ran out of fingers!

go to preferences and make your own key combination. it is easier. sorry for not bring that up earlier. :)

If you’re using a Mac, make sure that the command+option+I shortcut isn’t already defined as a shortcut in another application. It took me forever to figure out that the reason that cmd+opt+I wouldn’t work for me in Photoshop CS3 was because it was already assigned in an iTunes preference pane program (SizzlingKeys) as the shortcut for foregrounding the iTunes window.

@noyesa – FYI, in my default Mac CS3 install, cmd+shift+option-I gets you “file info,” not “image size.”

@noyesa command+option+i
