Using the Zoom Tool

You may have worked with a zoom tool in another program, clicking on a file to zoom in and then clicking again to zoom back out. Photoshop’s Zoom tool offers the same behavior, plus some additional features to help you quickly display an image in the view that works best. Note that zooming merely adjusts the size of the image file onscreen so that you can work more effectively. Zooming does not adjust the dimensions of the file itself, and therefore does not affect the size at which the file prints.

Zooming In and Out

The most common zoom operations are to zoom in (get a closer view of the image) and to zoom out (get a further, more overall view of the image). The steps here illustrate these common uses for the Zoom tool.
