In Adobe Photoshop CS5.5 / CS6, is there a keyboard shortcut to make a new frame using the animation window and timeline?

I make a lot of gif animations and would like to reduce mouse movement for productivity.

No. But, you can make a hotkey for it.

From top menu: Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts.. Ctrl+Alt+Shift+K

Just select Palette menus from the drop down list and then Animations. Once you've given a hotkey press Accept. enter image description here

( Make sure to listen to photoshop when it warns you if the inserted hotkey combination would override any existing ones. You can try to use Ctrl, Shift+Alt to make sure that it doesn't happen. )

  • Yes! woo hoo! This is like Dreamweaver I was looking for this menu before; I was looking for Macros though! Thank you so much. Repped and marked. Nov 15, 2011 at 9:51
  • @TheBlackBenzKid Oh, and FYI if you give hotkey like this, it will start showing that hotkey in the menu where the function can be found. ( Incase you keep forgetting what you set.. or something. )
