    Making Photoshop cs5's brush size shortcut like Painter CTRL+ALT+Left Click

    I'm using this handy shortcut all the time to change brush size on the fly

    CTRL+ALT+LEFT CLICK (DRAG)

    in painter, sai, illuststudio (and all normal painting software)

    In Mac, no need to remap the shortcut is normal. ctrl+alt+leftclic

    but when photoshop introtuced it , the shortcut was CTRL+ALT+RIGHT CLICK (DRAG)

    since i got used to the original one and have not configured right click in my pen, i found that i can use autohotkey to remap the photoshop shortcut

    so why not share it

    just launch this little script (wich is an *.exe file) when using photoshop, it will detected when you hit ctrl+alt+leftclic and make it act like ctrl+alt+rightclic
    it also make the same thing for the COLOR HUD in photoshop alt+shift+leftclic will act like alt+shift+rightclic

    you can copy it and save it (using notepad) with ahk extension
    install autohotkey http://www.autohotkey.com/download/

    and launch it


    ;This Subsitute the shortcut alt+ctrl+leftmouse to alt+ctrl+rightmouse

    I was looking for a Color HUD shortcut and a better way to pick color

    and found this awesome little tool

    it let you changes the brush size with one touch (no need to click , really on the fly) !

    and more important it make the COLOR HUD act normal : hold down a key and choose the hue, value and saturation at your ease then release the key

    it has also the auto-save function (i was using another tool for it PhotoShop AutoSave)

    it seems a bit buggy when working too fast so slow down

    thaught i must share this one

    it seems many cool photoshop users are sharing their tool
