Thank you Craig. I was just coming on here to say the same. The A4 links are good (and slightly different from the original long scrolling version.

There are other tutorials out there to suit the other needs people have put forward here.

John Coates has made a great desktop background one for Photoshop which can be found here:

Another designer, Emma Norton from Bring Your Own Laptop, has created some great A5 handouts for Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator that can be found here:

For all those requesting individual software shortcuts and formatted in a print version. Please check out Jamie Spencer's blog as it has all of these available. He has dedicated quite a number of hours to making this fabulous resource and should be commended for his dedication. Scroll down after the infographic and you'll see a list of individual software shortcuts for your printing pleasure:

I think that this is a great resource! Thanks for sharing. It looks great and it will be extremely useful to me personally and for my students. I hope that it is okay if I separate each software so that I can make each one its own document to share with my students. Nice work! Thanks again!

For crying out loud! Just open the JPEG in Photoshop and you'll see that it's a 150 dpi resolution and almost 7 inches wide, perfect for individual 8.5 x 11 landscape sheets. You can then crop the image or select and copy sections to separate the image for each application. If you need this image, you should at least be able to use Photoshop!!! This is a tremendous amount of work and if someone gives me this, I don't expect him or her to tailor it to my specific individual needs. Thanks for all the work and the excellent time saver!

This is super cool! But I would never hang them on the wall because kids wouldn't be able to see them from their seats. What would be even more useful would be a desktop background - any chance you can flip them around to landscape and increase their resolution?

Thank you! This is a great resource for anyone. I will definitely share this. It's a shame some people don't appreciate the fact that someone took the time to create a helpful tool and distribute it for free. Complainers.

I think they are a beautiful resource - but would be more useful if they could be held in the hand while editing. Not a complaint, Rene - more like a request to help students! I believe that Adobe really does read comments and appreciates suggestions that would help us use their tools - at least that's been my experience with them! :)

Aloha! I am having a problem trying to print the document. No matter what setting I select (fit to page, 100%, original), only the FW page prints - and it is oversized for the page. To be truly useful, I would think the shortcut pages might be individually selectable (for "today's" lesson), or at least print all the pages properly, so they might be employed when on that specific subject.

It is not very practical to have to open a separate window to look for a shortcut when one is in the middle of a project. Can this please be corrected? I would LOVE to be able to have these in print form!

It doesn't matter if I try the jpeg or the pdf - the only thing that prints is part of the FW page.

The infographic format is certainly beautiful, but I really wish this would have been formatted in a way that makes it printable on standard paper, suitable for placing in a folder handy nearby or even posting to the wall in my workstation. The way it is I am super unlikely to use it for reference and I'm definitely not going to try and memorize it by staring at it. Shortcuts are the kind of thing you learn one by one, as you need them and look them up. So for that reason I'm giving it only two stars ... I hate to use the world "useless" since I can see the person put a lot of effort into the design (hence the second star) ... but yeah. What am I supposed to do with this, except talk about how beautiful it is?

I have seen these circulate around various posts but good to have it in one printable pdf file. Will be printing these out and sticking them up in the classroom for sure! Thanks for sharing.
