Video: Zooming and panning

Most of the time when I'm working on an image in Silver Efex Pro, I prefer to see the entire image. That allows me to quickly look around and evaluate multiple areas of the photo. But in some cases, you'll want to get a closer look. The loop view certainly allows you to observe specific areas of the photo. All you need to do is move your mouse out over the image and that area of the photo will be displayed in the loop display down at the bottom-right. At times though you might want a largest zoomed in display. To begin with bear in mind that you can hide the panels in Silver Efex Pro so that your image is able to take up more of the available space.

Zooming and panning

Most of the time when I'm working on an image in Silver Efex Pro, I prefer to see the entire image. That allows me to quickly look around and evaluate multiple areas of the photo. But in some cases, you'll want to get a closer look. The loop view certainly allows you to observe specific areas of the photo. All you need to do is move your mouse out over the image and that area of the photo will be displayed in the loop display down at the bottom-right. At times though you might want a largest zoomed in display. To begin with bear in mind that you can hide the panels in Silver Efex Pro so that your image is able to take up more of the available space.

I'll go ahead and click the button at the top-left in order to hide the left panel. And then I'll click the button up toward the top-right in order to hide the right panel. So now I automatically have a little bit of a zoomed in look at the image. But I can also take that a step further by utilizing the zoom option. All I have to do is click on the zoom button and the image will be zoomed in. The default is 100% but I can also choose a different zoom setting from the pop up associated with that zoom button. So for example, if I want to zoom into 400%, I can choose the 400% option, and then clicking the zoom button will toggle between the full image view and that 400% display.

I'll go ahead and change the option back to 100% and you can see that I'm able to zoom in and out to 100% versus the full image. Whenever I'm zoomed in, so that the entire image is not visible, you'll notice that a navigator appears. And I can use that navigator to pan around the photo. I'll drag the box for example, which shows the portion of the image that's currently visible. And that changes as well, which portion of the photo is viewed on the main display. So, as I drag that box around, I'm able to essentially drag around the image.

I can also simply click inside the navigator in order to choose a particular portion of the photo that I'd like to take a closer look at. If the navigator display gets in your way at all, you can simply click and drag on the title bar for that navigator in order to move it into a different position. So when you want to take a closer look at the image, you can simply click that zoom button ,adjusting the zoom percentage as needed and navigating around the image, with the navigator.
