Adjusting Selection Size w/ shortcut keys

Recommended Posts


I am doing a lot of Re-sizing when I take screenshots, but as I have a widescreen here, my screenshots is too wide. So I have to create a selection :MoveSelectionTool: and drag the nubs to hit 800x800, so I then is able to re-size my picture down to 256x256. Sometimes I am having trouble getting a 800x800 selection exactly, so I was wondering if there were any shortcut key for adjusting the size of the selection exactly?

Yes of course, but it will take some time if to press my way down to 800x800 from 1280x800 don't you think? :P

Ctrl + Arrow Key does 10 pixel steps.

Also, if you hold the arrow key down or keep pressing it quickly, it will increase the step size automatically.
