A way to bind key's to +opacity and -opacity.

Some info: I use the brush a lot (dodge and burn etc). And i change my opacity and size a lot. And i do this on a very high speed for workflow and efficiency.

I have a wacom with pen pressure so i can set my opacity to pen pressure. But most of the time i work in the region of 5% to 30% opacity.
I change from 10% to 20% back to 05% to 30% back to 10% with pen pressure enabled, so that means when i have my brush opacity on 10% i work with 0-10%. But some strokes need a bit more umf so i put it on 20% for like 2 strokes instead of ~4 strokes with 10%, and then back to 10%.

I do this on high speed, think 4 to 5 strokes a second.
While i do this my index finger and middle finger are on [ and ] to adjust my brush size for each stroke constantly.

So to move my hand from [ and to 1 to 0 the whole time slows me down a lot workflow wise.

Solution and the idea:

A way for us to be able to change key to be +10% opacity or -10% brush opacity. (maybe a +5% and -5% also for modifiers (shift/cmd/alt))

I would put it on - and so i wouldn't have to change the position of my hand that much.

This would help my team and mine workflow and brushing ease a lot. And to be fair, i don't know why this isn't a thing you can shortcut already.

Seems so intuitive to have 1 tot 0 and - and = key's to do increments instead of nothing atm.

Good idea?
Kind regards Tarek :)
