In this article I will tell you about 8 ways to increase or decrease the image in Photoshop.
It’s easy to zoom in and out in Photoshop if your mouse has a wheel. Holding the key Alt you will be able to enlarge the image if you turn the wheel away from you, and vice versa, twist to yourself – reduce.
Sometimes we need to enlarge the image by a certain size (in percent), for this you can use the following setting line (it is located at the bottom of your open working image):
For example, you want to change the value 89.21% on 200%. Simply delete this value and enter a new one. Click Enter.
Sometimes this line is inactive. In this case, go to the Window menu, select the Status Bar line and check the box opposite her.
Note: in Photoshop CS2, each working document will have a status bar, and in early versions there will be only one status bar, which is the same for all working windows and is located at the very bottom of the main window.
You can instantly give the document a size in 100% double-clicking on the Loupe tool (Zoom tool) in the toolbar. You can do the same if you press the key combination Alt + Ctrl + 0. The size of 100% is also called actual pixels.
Magnifying an image to 100% can be very useful (this is a 1 to 1 view), especially when you want to see an undistorted, real look of the image. Let me show what this means:
You yourself have already perfectly noticed how the image has changed from increasing or decreasing the scale. At the original scale, the 100% line is smooth. And 90% or 110% already distorts the image.
It turns out that any resizing of the image, be it a Magnifier tool or a command Image / Image Size, affects quality. One difference in the case of Image / Image Size changes are complete and immediately affect the quality. And the Loupe tool by itself does not do any harm to the image – it just changes the view, but not the quality. You can turn the wheel back and forth, still the quality does not change.
We can also adjust the size of the image to the existing working window. And we do it by double clicking on the tool – Hand (Hand tool) (hot key H) in the toolbar. The same can be done by pressing the key combination Ctrl + 0.
By the way, when your tool is active – Magnifier You can see at the top in the settings of this three such buttons:
Button Actual pixels (Actual pixels) allows you to increase the size to 100%.
Button Fit On Screen (stretch to full screen) allows you to place the image on the entire screen, just as happened in the case of (or keys).
Button Print size shows the image in the form in which it will print.
Another method to increase or decrease with the Loupe tool (hot key Z).
Open the image, select the Loupe tool and hover over the image, you will see this icon , This means that you can zoom in with just one click.
Now hold down the key Alt and … you will immediately see a decrease icon .
You can call the Loupe tool differently.
For example, click on another tool – let it be a selection. . Now hold down Ctrl + space (one hand), then clicking the mouse you can zoom.
Similarly, clamp Alt + the space bar (one hand) and the mouse button will decrease.
Now release all three keys, and you will be returned to the selection tool. In addition, you can increase and decrease even when a selection or any other tool is active in the image – hold the Kavishu Alt and roll the mouse wheel.
You can change the size as follows:
Ctrl + and Ctrl – , no matter which tool is selected.
Increasing one specific area is also very easy. Select the Loupe tool in the toolbar and use the mouse to select the area to zoom.
Explore all the options for increasing and decreasing the image and choose the most convenient ones for you to use them constantly.
