• How to Activate the Continuous Zoom Function in Photoshop

    I love finding Photoshop's hidden time-saving functions like this one. The continuous zoom is activated by selecting the Zoom Tool from the tool bar or by pressing Z on the keyboard.

    In the Options bar across the top of the screen, choose either the zoom in or zoom out icon.

    Position the cursor over the portion of the image you want to zoom on. Click and hold the mouse button. Photoshop will begin an animated zoom function that continues as long as the button is pressed. Release the mouse button to stop zooming.

    Whether you are zooming in or zooming out, Photoshop zooms and repositions continuously until you release the click.
