I have a quickie for you, but it's a good one. We're going to talk about zooming in, just real fast. Sometimes you just want to zoom in to 100% to see a detail in the image. You don't even want to use the loop or anything. You just want to see what you want to see when you want to see it. And that's what I'm going to show you right now. So, let's say we're looking at this tent here. I'm going to hit the V key just to bring this into a different view. I go, this is a nice tent. I like this tent. I wonder what brand it is. I see some type here. So if I could just zoom in and take a look at it, I could probably find out.
So all I have to do is put the pointer where I want to zoom in, hit the Z key for zoom, brings me up to 100%. If I want I can move around, I can move this thing around in the Navigator, or I can just move it around just by clicking -and-dragging, either way, and then hit the Z key and move back out. Now what's so fun about this is wherever you put the pointer, that's where you zoom in. So I put the pointer here, hit the Z key, there we are. Hit the Z key again and we're back out.
It's very easy, very fast. Zooming, I think, is very helpful when you just want to take a quick look at a detail in an image and you don't feel like doing loops or anything else. So it's the Z key. Memorize it and use it.
