Step and Repeat command in Adobe Photoshop

In this video tutorial I want to introduce you one of hidden features or command which you can not find in any menu, sub-menu or context menu. It seems there isn't such command. The secret is in keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl + Alt + T to copy object and enter free transform mode. Anything you will do in free transform mode using this shortcut Photoshop will remember - you can distort, rotate, scale, move object. After transformation first confirm with Enter or using Commit check-mark in options bar.

In this example I am using shape and clipping mask for my simple creation. The beauty of using vector object is that everything can be changed and rearranged at any time without losing any quality. You can use this powerful command in many different situation with vector or pixel objects to create contact sheets, catalogues and so on.
