Zoom Tool

The Zoom Tool magnifies / reduces the image view without changing the image data.

  • In the Toolbox, select the Zoom Tool.
  • As default the tool magnifies the view, so the cursor looks like this . Click on any area of your image to magnify it.
  • To reduce the view, click the "zoom out" button on the Options bar; then click on your image.
  • If you check "Resize Windows to Fit" in the Options bar, the document window is resized to better fit your image every time you use the Zoom.
  • The 3 buttons in the Options bar let you select one of 3 standard views: "Actual Pixels", "Fit On Screen" or "Print Size".
  • Optionally, you can choose "Fit on screen" view by double-clicking the Zoom button on your Toolbox (movie).

Tip. Just in case you didn't know, the Zoom tool is also available in Photoshop Elements that is way cheaper version.
