Default Streamlining intuos 3 and photoshop

I don't know how many people actually use this, and how many people don't, but this is so helpful for me I just felt like posting it, it might help someone. This has streamlined my painting process so much, I rarely have to pause painting to screw with photoshop settings. This could be seen as a continuation of Miss Wiggles photoshop flow tutorial. I love working without the clutter of the menu bar and tool presets, so I work on the black bg mode in ps, with tools hidden. That's why I loe this so much

First, bring up your tablet propoerties, should be in the control panel.

Pretty self explanatory. the far left key is my unlimited undo key. All you have to do is select keystroke, then type in ctrl alt and z as if you were using the photoshop hot key. the same goes for the zoom in and zoom out, and the pan scroll you just hold down and drag your pic wherever.

This I thought was ingenious when my boyfriend showed me, instead of the touch strip being zoom in zoom out, he used the hotkeys for brush size.

While using the standard brush tool, clicking alt will get you the eyedropper. After I block in rough colors, I am constantly picking colors and painting almost simultaneously, since the button is right next to my freaking thumb. Right click will bring up the brush options so you can choose different brushes and sizes (which you won't have to with the magic toughstrip thing!!).

Maybe i'm just behind on the times or whatever, but maybe one out of the 484.23 of you has a use for this.
