Using The Zoom Tool
the other one that I want you to practice at home is this silly little thing eso this document I've called roommate wanted. Let's pretend that someone is looking for a roommate. You're looking for a place to live and you see this picture and you're like, Oh, well, that looks really nice. Do I wanna live there and be this person's roommate? Well, I would suggest that you practice navigating around your image because there might be some hidden little things in this image that might make you not want to room there. So I'm gonna show you how you zoom in and zoom in and zoom out to get around your image so you can get a better look at things and I'm gonna try to not zoom in on anything to give away the surprise. But there's some hidden things in this picture. Three hidden things that might make you not want Teoh sign a lease for that place. So I'll let you discover that by practicing these techniques. So when you want to zoom in and zoom out of your documents, you're gonna use your keyboard...
. OK? Do not go over here to the two bar and think you're going to pick up the zoom tool and zoom because that just takes away too long and it's so clumsy. We don't do that. What we do. Instead, if we use our keyboard and there's two ways to zoom, you can do what I call scooting, which is just sort of a general. Bring it closer so I can see kind of thing. And the keyboard shortcut for that is command or control plus. So if I hold down Commander Control, I just hit plus plus plus plus plus plus. Plus, it will just zoom in like Crazy Farm and, like this is zoomed into. If we look up in the bar up here for the tab for this image roommate wanted, we see we're viewing it at 3200%. So that's major doing. And that's why we see this little grid now cause Photoshopped showing us actual pixels. So that's commander Control. Plus, of course, than to zoom out as you might expect, would be Commander Control minus, So I'm just hitting minus minus minus minus and now, like, wow, I mean, I'm not sure how that's useful, but that's 0.66%. Okay, So, Commander control plus or minus and then three keyboard shortcut to just, like, make it look good again. Just fix it. Put it back on My screen is Commander Control and the number zero. So I like to think of that like ruby red slippers, like just take you home. Although maybe you don't want to be home here because you'll see why when you dig around in the image. Okay, so that's scooting in, scooting out and just jumping back toe home. But what if you want to zoom in on a certain thing in the image a certain part of the image again keyboard, we're gonna hold down, um, Commander Control Space bar. And when I do that, you'll see that the icon for the tool turns to that zoom tool. Now with my mouth Seiken, decide. OK, well, maybe I want to zoom in over here. Or maybe like onto this bookshelf like what? A little on this bookshelf. All hold down, Commander Control Space bar, and I'll just click and drag to the right and it's swoops in right to that area. Now if I need to scoot over a little bit, I can just hold down space bar and then drag. I get the hand tool and I can just drag around. Okay? So I want you to practice this because it seems silly. Like I'm gonna practice navigating around my image, but yes, yes. You want to do that Because nothing is worse than when you're working in photo shop. And you need to zoom in because you can't see well enough what you're doing. And you don't want to stop what you're doing to zoom because you know, it's fumble lee and clumsy and a headache. Um, so then you don't And then your work suffers because you couldn't see so practice zooming in and, uh, scrolling around Whoops. Holding down the space bar and you can just drag. So once you get sued in, I encourage you to take a little tour of this image and see who can spot the three things that are here that might make you want to think twice. And, uh, I can't wait to see what people do with that
