Often, you won't want to do anything to it at all. You want it to start on the screen at its original size--and then zoom in from there. But if you hope to create a zooming out effect, then drag the Zoom slider to the right (or type a larger number into the box), magnify the photo in the Preview screen, and fnally drag the picture itself to center it properly.

If you've done this accidentally, just nudge the Zoom slider slightly right, then left. The photo smartly snaps back into centered position. On the other hand, there are certain creative possibilities here. You can make a photo begin offscreen and then slowly slide into place, for example--or even exit the screen by sliding off the opposite side.
