Is there a hotkey for 'Protect Alpha' aka 'Preserve Transparency'???

Recommended Posts

In Photoshop you can preserve transparency for a layer using the hotkey '/'. 

There's a similar function in the brush tool setting called 'Protect Alpha', is there a hotkey for that?? Or ways to assign a hotkey to that??
Ideally this setting should be in the layers too

Hi Melcolm,

Welcome to the forums :)

As far as I'm aware there is no shortcut for this I'm afraid.



Please tag me using @ in your reply so I can be sure to respond ASAP.

Hi Callum,

What is the best practice then to change for example, the color of a layer and protect its alpha (transparency)?

Thank you
