There's a very cool shortcut in Illustrator: you press Command/CTRL+d and Illustrator repeats the last action for you.

Is there a shortcut that does this or at least something similar in Photoshop?


Sort of....

The closest thing to this is Edit > Transform > Again -- Command/CTRL-Shift-T --- But this only works for transformations. And it only repeats the last transformation. Unlike Illustrator, it won't do things like repeat a copy and transform.

  • The "Last Filter" shortcut also repeats, well, the last filter – Luciano Jun 11 '19 at 7:57

Actually, there is. Under Edit > Step and Repeat or CMD/CTRL + ALT + U.

    Interesting. I'm not seeing that in my Photoshop menus. – Scott Jun 10 '19 at 20:10
  • Nor I; also the shortcut listed does nothing for me in a plain-jane install of PS CC 2019 – GerardFalla Jun 24 '19 at 16:31
