View Full Version : Feature suggestion

Something I find very useful in Photoshop is being able to not just create a new layer with the press of a function key, but creating new layers of certain blending modes. For example: I created actions so F1 creates a regular layer, F2 creates a new multiply layer, F3 creates a new screen layer, etc. I create new shading layers constantly and I have F1 assigned to create layer, but then having to manually select the blend mode every single time slows the flow down significantly. If there's a way to do this already within the program, I'd love to know!
Thank you,

There aren't any shortcuts for this but thanks for the suggestion! (I'm also moving this to the Suggestions section so we can find it later if needed ;) )

Possible workarounds for this are:

- creating layers with the desired blend mode(s) and then duplicating as needed (as they will then duplicate the blend mode as well)
- creating a script to add a new layer with a specific blend mode (slightly advanced and not necessarily much quicker! But entirely possible).
