Changing the View Size with the Navigator Palette

Photoshop's Navigation palette gives you an overall view of the image and the ability to navigate through the document or change the zoom size. Viewing images at different sizes gives you the ability to focus on small elements of the design, without impacting the overall quality of the image. Once small areas of an image are enlarged, it's easier for you to make minute changes. Zoom size determines the visible size of an image, as seen in the document window. Zooming in (enlarging the image) gives you a versatile magnifying glass that lets you work on and manipulate fine details, and then you can zoom out (reducing the image) to view how the changes impact the entire image. The Navigator palette contains a thumbnail view of the image. Under the Thumbnail are the controls that let you adjust the zoom of the image. Changes made in the Navigator palette, are immediately viewable in the active document window.

Change the View Size with the Navigator Palette

Select the Navigator palette.

Use one of the following methods to change the view size:

  • Drag the triangular slider to the right to increase the zoom or to the left to decrease the zoom.

  • Click the small and large mountain icons, located to the left and right of the triangular slider, to decrease or increase the zoom.

  • Enter a value from .33 to 1600 percent into the Zoom box.
