Now the One-on-One series is nothing if not comprehensive, and I say this because I regard this next technique as exceedingly optional. Basically, I'm going to document how you can scroll inside of an image using the Page Up and Page Down keys and variations, which can be useful if you need to page down a very specific amount and then page up to that same previous location for screen matching and the like, but it's still pretty esoteric. Anyway, I'm inside an image called Everlasting.jpg and notice that I'm zoomed to 100% right here dead center in the image.
And just so that we have a sense where we are, I'm going to bring up the Navigator panel once again, and you can see there is our Window into the larger image. If you press the Page Up key, you're going to move up an entire window, see that. And if you press the Page Down key you're going to move down an entire window like so, I press the Page Down key twice there. If you want a smaller increment than that which you probably will, you want to press Shift+Page Up like so, and I'm pressing Shift+Page Up repeatedly, or Shift+Page Down, like that.
Now, imagine that you want to move continuously then you press-and-hold that key combo such as Shift+Page Up to scroll continuously up the image like that, or Shift+Page Down to scroll down continuously. Now, you could that without pressing Shift but then you'd move awfully darn quickly. All right! So that's how you move up and down. How do you move left and right? Well, here's a couple of tricks that I don't think anything of but they do exist. You can press the Home key to go to the top-left corner of the image, or you can press the End key to go to the bottom-right corner. Isn't that great? All right! So, there's that whatever.
I'm going to go back to the center just by clicking on it for a second. If you want to go to the left, you press Ctrl+Page Up like that, and that moves your entire screen once again. Ctrl+Page Down moves you an entire screen to the right. And that's going to be Command+Page Up and Command+Page Down on the Mac. You can also add Shift to that combo. So if you press Ctrl+Shift+Page Up, you're going to move in small increments. That would be Command+Shift+Page Up on the Mac, or you can press Ctrl+Shift+Page Down to move slightly to the right.
That would be Command+Shift+Page Down on the Mac. And of course you can press-and-hold if you like that keyboard combination. So, there I was pressing Ctrl+ Shift+Page Up, now I'm pressing Ctrl+Shift+Page Down. And that's it. Folks those are the nudging keyboard tricks that are available to you here inside Photoshop.
