    Does anyone know the Add Layer Mask keyboard shortcut in Photoshop CS3 by any chance?

    Don't know the keyboard shortcut, but if you have your foreground color set to black and hold down the opt key clicking on the mask [0] icon at the bottom of the layers window will add a black filled mask to the current layer.

    I use masked dupe screen and multiply layers to adjust most photos I edit and simply created an action linked to a function key to create them.

    Thanks, I use that black mask sometimes, but was hoping there's a shortcut for adding a layer mask. In PS prefs, can't select a shortcut for some reason...
