Zoom Tool

Whenever you click on your image by using the Zoom tool, you zoom in on the image to a preset level (just like the Mountain icons in the Navigator palette). I almost never use the tool in this way because it takes too long to get where I want to be. Instead, I usually click and drag across the area I want to enlarge, and Photoshop immediately zooms me into that specific area.

In addition to zooming in, you also have options for quickly zooming out. Double-click the Hand tool icon in the Tools palette to fit the entire image on-screen. You can also double-click the Zoom tool icon in the Tools palette to view your image at 100% magnification. (This will show you how large your image will appear when viewed in a web browser or in any program designed for multimedia. It is not an indication of how large it will be when printed.) Option-clicking (Macintosh) or Alt-clicking (Windows) with the Zoom tool zooms you out at preset levels. Clicking on the Zoom Out icon in the options bar (Figure 1.17) will allow you to zoom out without having to hold a key on your keyboard. When the Zoom Out icon is chosen, holding down Option (Mac) or Alt (Windows) will cause you to zoom in on the image.
