Aside from the fact that it’s horizontal rather than vertical, this custom keyboard is the spitting image of Photoshop’s toolbar. Just casually place it in front of you either above your external keyboard or below your laptop keyboard and you’ve essentially got yourself a powerful set of Photoshop shortcuts, complete with Photoshop’s iconography for good measure. You can find all of Photoshop’s commonly used tools in the key-layout, along with quick-access keys for undoing and redoing, as well as for saving and opening files. There are even custom-mappable knobs for controlling features such as brush sizes, hardness, or even for zooming in/out. The keyboard can be mapped as per your requirements, and for people who don’t want something this elongated (that’s not what she said), there’s even a smaller, square-shaped Numpad-esque keyboard with a few extra buttons that unlock more features… and while products like Loupedeck’s Creative Tool exist, it’s nice knowing that this particular variant, created by Etsy-maker 3dDecors, is close to 5 times cheaper.
Forget the MacBook and its Touch Bar, just buy me this slim custom keyboard and I’ll be on my way.
