Transform duplicate

I've a big fan of the Photoshopsupport blog and the other day I saw this great time saving tip.

If you need to transform a duplicate of your layer or selection just press Apple-Alt-T (Command-Option-T). Alternatively you can press Apple-J and than Apple-T.

I know folks including myself have a lot of fun with PS tennis matches. Wonder if anyone did a speed race yet. Tips like these could shave off few precious seconds of your lap times.

Yes, pretty useful shortcut
but even funnier is Repeat transform: Command+option+Shift+T (after having used duplicate free transform)

Very useful to make fractal-like designs or spirographic patterns:
