Online Manual

One of the strengths of PhotoQt is its wide variety of supported shortcuts and commands. There is a set of default shortcuts set when you first start PhotoQt, but they all can be adjusted to your liking. The table below lists all the available commands and their respective default shortcuts. They are broken up into their various categories as they can be found in the settings.

In addition to the built-in command you can also set a shortcut to trigger some external app or script.
