Increasing or Decreasing Magnification

Since changing the zoom size of an image is a fundamental to the creative process, Photoshop gives you several ways to accomplish zooming. An additional way to zoom is using the options on the Options bar. To access the Zoom tool options, you must have the Zoom tool selected. Photoshop gives you two handy zoom preset values. To automatically zoom the document to 100 percent, double-click the Zoom tool. To automatically fit the image to the monitor, double-click the Hand tool.

Increase the Magnification of an Image

Click the Zoom In or Zoom Out buttons on the Options bar, and then click in the document window to increase or decrease the zoom.

Click Ignore Palettes to zoom the active document beyond the boundaries of the floating palettes.

This causes the zoomed document to expand to the size of the monitor window.

Click Actual Pixels, Fit On Screen, or Print Size to quickly zoom the screen to a preset size.

TIMESAVER It's possible to change the zoom of a document without ever leaving the keyboard. Hold the Ctrl key (Win) or the key (Mac), and then press the plus "+", or minus "-" keys. The plus key increases the zoom size, and the minus key decreases the zoom size.
