I want to build on my Photoshop performance and a key solution would be to learn the shortcuts for Photoshop. That said does anyone know a reliable place to get Photoshop CS5 and CS6 shocrtcuts listed??

EDIT The shortcut to the shortcut list is Alt+Shift+Ctrl+K

Also upon review thanks to @John. In Illustrator CS4, CS5 and CS6 also has the shortcut list and the shortcut list is in CS4, CS5 and CS6, too.

The most reliable source for Photoshop shortcuts is going to be Photoshop itself. You can export your shortcuts to an HTML document:

Edit → Keyboard Shortcuts, click Summarize.

Keyboard Shortcuts

You should then be prompted where to save the HTML page which will show you all your shortcuts in a nice list.

Photoshop Shortcuts List

This list can be quite extensive and you probably won't use them all. If you are more of a visual learner, run an image search for something like "photoshop keyboard layout" and you'll see the most popular/useful default shortcuts.


There is a list of shortcuts for PS CS5 available as a PDF, just click this text.

Here's an example of how it looks - there are far too many to screenshot them all:
