I’ve been sitting around for the last week trying to find something I can share with you all that will really enhance your enjoyment and time efficiency when editing your photos. That’s when I stumbled upon this absolute gem of a program!


This guy “TimarIuveo” on YouTube has essentially made an action that tells your mouse to move up or down 20px and then click when you push the up or down arrow keys on your keyboard. Of course this may not be something you want to run all the time, but for those moments you’re loading up a photo-session and you know you’re going to want to see what presets or VSCO’s etc look best, undoubtedly this will be invaluable to you!

Now, I understand that some of us out there don’t use presets, and that’s fine, this isn’t aimed at you guys, but for those of you that do use presets, I REALLY hope you find this useful after the somewhat clumsy decision not to be able to scroll through the presets via keyboard normally.

Now, it’s not perfect, it skips them sometimes and you have to scroll the list etc as the mouse will just keep going up or down and clicking for you when you push the keyboard. But even so, it really helps take your mind off of having to look where you’re clicking and then moving back over to the image, it helps with just scrolling through instantly and seeing what you like and easily comparing them etc.

Anyway, that;s it for today, short, sweet, hope it helps!

    You do realize that anybody can just set this up with MouseKeys (which are part of the OS), right?
