Adobe Photoshop Tips: January 2, 2010: How to re-run filters in Photoshop and Elements
What fun I’ve had with my family during the holidays, snuggling up on the couch and watching re-runs of all of our favorite Christmas shows.
It’s fun to watch Photoshop re-runs, too. When you are working with filters, you can run the filter again using an easy shortcut.
To begin, open a photo and select Filter from the Menu bar. Run a filter by clicking the category and filter name. Make adjustments in the filter dialog box and click OK.
To exaggerate the effect, rerun the filter by pressing Ctrl F (Mac: Cmd F).
If you have the History panel open, you’ll see that the filter has been added a second time. Looking at the photo, you can see that the filter effect has been doubled, as well.
You can also run the effect on another photo by opening a second photo and pressing Ctrl F (Mac: Cmd F).
Until you run a different filter or restart Photoshop, the shortcut will continue to run the last filter using the setting adjustments.
To run the same filter with new adjustments, simply click Ctrl Alt F (Mac: Cmd Opt F) to run the filter with the filter dialog box.
I find the filter re-run especially helpful when running filters like Unsharp Mask. Sometimes one pass is not strong enough to achieve the effect you want. Now you’ll know how to multiply the effect with just two keystrokes.
