Did you know Photoshop can do math inside text fields? This means that, for example, if you want to change the Opacity to 48% divided by 3, you don’t have to do the math. You’d type 48/3 into the Opacity field, and when you press Enter, you end up with 16. You can add, subtract, divide, and multiply (use the * symbol for multiplication). You can also do compound math, such as 20*2+5–2, which would give 43. These work in every field that accepts numbers in Photoshop. If you’re in a dialog with multiple fields, press Tab to move to the next field. Now that’s handy.
