All right, I am just going to zoom in just a little farther, 50% that is good because now at this point, we have to learn how to scroll, different ways to scroll and/or pan inside of an image. You can scroll from the keyboard by pressing for example the Page Up key to go up the screen, or the Page Down key to go down to the screen.
For smaller increments, try out Shift with Page Up or Shift Page Down, just to nudge the screen. If you want to go back and forth, left or right, Command Page Up goes over to the left. Command Page Down goes to the right. And that would be Ctrl Page Up on the PC or Ctrl Page Down to go to the right, and of course, you will also have Command Shift for littler increments, either direction, if you want to do that.
But the best way to work is just to use the hand tool, which happens to be selected for me right now. I will just go ahead and drag with the hand tool, and that is just moves the image inside the image window. Really, really great way to work, such a great way to work in fact, but you never need to use the hand tool. You never need to actually switch tools to the hand tool.
I am going to go back to the default tool, the mark key tool here, and let me show you to get to the hand tool at any point in time, press and hold the Spacebar and then drag. So Spacebar, as long as the Spacebar is down, it gets you the hand tool, then you can drag the image around like so.
As soon as you release the Spacebar, you go back to which ever tool you already have selected. And the reason that these keyboard shortcuts are so great that allow to select different tools on the fly is that you can keep using whatever tool you have active. As you get more and more experience with Photoshop, you will find out that is really a pain in the neck to keep switching back to the toolbox and then do something, and then go back to the toolbox and then do something.
It is really great to get to the common tools like the zoom tool and a hand tool just from the keyboard. So remember, Spacebar for the hand tool, Command Spacebar or Ctrl Spacebar to zoom in, Option Spacebar or Alt Spacebar to zoom out.
All right, so now, everything that we have seen so far has been working the way it works now inside Photoshop for as long as I can remember, probably not since the beginning of time, but for several years anyway.
Well, this next thing I am about to show you is new to Photoshop CS2. Photoshop CS2 introduces new support of the scroll wheel. If your mouse offers a scroll wheel, which most PC mice do, certainly all Microsoft mice. Apple has this thing against any buttons or any sort of stuff on the mouse or whatsoever. So, if you still have your Apple mouse and you have not thrown that away yet on the Macintosh side, then you do not have a scroll wheel. But if you buy a third party mouse and you probably do.
And watch what happens. If I scroll up with the scroll wheel, I zoom in incrementally. If I move the scroll wheel down or toward me, then I zoom out. If I press the Option key while moving the scroll wheel up, I scroll up, if I press the Option key where the Alt key in the PC by the way, when scrolling the mouse wheel down, I scroll down. And that gives you a sense of what is going on. I do not want to overwhelm you with every single permutation, mess around with the other keys as well if you press Shift, you get different results. If you press Command or Ctrl, you get different results as well.
So, if you like the scroll wheel, go ahead and give it a try. Newly supported inside Photoshop CS2.
