Photoshop: Add the ability to select "neutrals" in Selective Color adjustment with shortcut (alt + 9)

In Selective Color palette I can change Colors with alt+number. For ex. alt+3 = red, alt+4 = yellow until alt+8= magentas but then with alt+9 I dont get white. Well I dont need white very often but I need neutrals all the time.

Can you associate alt+9 with neutrals?

It's not logical but it would help a lot!

Thanks!

I’d like to be able to address whites, neutrals and blacks with keyboard shortcuts – just as before.
Even some keyboard shortcut to step forward (magentas to white, whites to neutrals etc.) would be an improvement to the current situation in my opinion.

Can’t see a way to do this (Custom Keyboard and menu doesn’t allow you to alter the keyboard short cuts in such menu’s). I suspect it would be a snap to do with a 3rd party macro like QuicKeys.

You can set the photoshop cs5 keyboard shortcuts to use Legacy Channel Shortcuts which will allow you to use Alt+1 to Alt+9 for the selective color
adjustment layer in the adjustments panel. (restart cs5 for the new shortcuts to take effect)
(Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts)

Just be aware of the changes in the other keyboard shortcuts that will take place:

Thanks for the advice, but personally I would prefer to be able to address whites, grays and blacks by shortcut in the Selective Color dialog while maintaining the current shortcuts.

I do agree with that.
