Essential Photoshop Elements VIDEO TUTORIALS ON PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS with your host Rick Peterson
Rick Peterson: Hey, this is Rick from the essential-photoshop-elements.com. In this video, I want to show you shortcut to quickly zoom up on a portion of your photo. In this photo of the lily there is a brown area right here on one of the leaves that I want to get rid off. It's hard to see in the view that I'm currently in so I want to zoom in closer. Now I could go to the toolbox and grab the zoom tool, but there is a quicker way and once you get use to it, it will become completely intuitive and you won't even have to think about it. Press the spacebar and then the control key on a PC or the command key on a Mac and you can see that your cursor turns into the zoom tool. Now what I have to do is click and drag around that area that I want to zoom in on, and that completely fills my screen with that area. Now I can see it much better and I can go ahead and clean up the area that I want to fix. Now the other nice thing about this is you don't even have to change the tools as soon as I let go those keys I was right back with the healing brush tool. So practice using this keyboard shortcut you will be glade you did. For lots more free information on photoshop elements go to my website essential-photoshop-elements.com. Until next time, take care.
