Working with One Image in Multiple Windows

There are times when you're working on an image in Photoshop, and you need to see two separate views of the image. For example, you're working on retouching a photo and you need a zoomed in view to do fine detail work. At the same time, you want to see a normal view to get an idea of how the retouching is affecting the normal-sized image. Being able to view one image at two different views is a valuable tool.

Create Two Views of One Image

Open a document.

Click the Window menu, click Arrange menu, and then click New Window.

A copy of the active document is created in a new document window.

Select the Zoom tool on the toolbox, and then increase the zoom of the new document to the desired level.

Select an editing or painting tool, and then begin work on the new image in the zoomed window.

The effects of your work instantly display in the normal image window.

When you're done with the new window, click the Close button.
