    For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with EditorsKeys, a company that makes a range of keyboard covers that are designed to display all of the shortcuts to professional-level photo, video, design, and audio editing software. We're giving away 25 keyboard editing skins.

    Each soft, ultra-thin silicone cover fits over the keyboard of an iMac, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air and overlays each key with its related shortcut for quicker, simpler editing. Covers are available for a range of software, including Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Photoshop, and Logic Pro X, and they are priced affordably at $30.


    The skins are perfect for people who often use complex editing software but need help remembering all of the different shortcuts available. While the feel of the keys will be softer due to the silicone covering, the skins are thin enough that they won't affect typing speed or accuracy. As an added bonus, they'll protect your keyboard from dirt, dust, and spills.


    Skins work with the 13 and 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro, the 13-inch MacBook Air, and older MacBook models including the 13 and 15-inch standard MacBooks and the 13-inch MacBook. They also work with the iMac Wireless Keyboard, but are not compatible with the new Magic Keyboard.

    [*]Ableton Live
    [*]Adobe Premiere
    [*]Avid Media Composer
    [*]Presonus Studio One

    [*]Adobe Photoshop

    In my experience these are expensive and usually slow things down. About the only thing they do is keep the keyboard clean, but if you never see it is it worth it?

    I thought that one of these things would help me learn Final Cut Pro a few years ago, but I realized that I don't look at the keys when I'm typing. Maybe I'm just very good at memorizing keyboard shortcuts, but I found that the skin did nothing for me.

    One of our keyboards at work (film post studio) is an avid version of this, can't say I've ever enjoyed using it.

    Any decent editor isn't staring at the keyboard to find the button they want, takes way too long. Plus, these programs allow you to custom map keys to whatever you like while the skins generally just offer the defaults. Half the keys end up different with my settings which makes these even less useful.

    ALL skins will alter typing on a keyboard. They require a firmer touch ... and they make proofreading even more of a requirement for keystrokes missed when the key wasn't pressed hard enough.

    I was a lucky winner, and I am very happy with the cover. I would recommend it to anyone that has troubles remembering all the shortcut keys.
