Photoshop Tip: Reverse Layers

I’ve come to use this nifty little keyboard shortcut combination for Reverse Layers within Adobe Photoshop CS or greater. And, it’s a safe key-combination to use from the default set.

  1. Open up your Keyboard Shortcuts Panel.
  2. Navigate to the Layer menu.
  3. Further down to the Arrange submenu
  4. Further-still down to the Reverse option
  5. Bind the key-combination (MAC:) COMMAND+SHIFT+r (PC:) CTRL+SHIFT+r to this option

Now select a group of layers in your layers palette. Hit your new keyboard shortcut, and voila! Layers reversed.
