Viewing images in Full Screen Preview mode

The ability to preview images both full screen as well as 100% in Bridge, without opening them in Photoshop, is one of the lesser known, yet most useful features in Bridge. Now, certainly we can view images larger by using the slider here in order to make the thumbnails bigger. But I'd like to see my images in full screen. In order to do this, we can either go into the view menu and select full screen preview or we can simply tap the Spacebar.

The preview will fit the image into the window, meaning we'll see the whole thing and it will scale it to whatever zoom percentage it needs to. If you want to zoom in, you can click in your image area to zoom. And then you can click to zoom out. Once you click to zoom in you can then click and drag in order to pan to see a different area of the image. Click again to zoom out. You can also use the plus and minus keys without any other keyboard modifier in order to zoom in.

And here we can zoom into up to 800%. Then I'll use the minus key in order to zoom back out. If I use my right arrow key, I'll move from one image to the next. If we want to go back, then I'll use the left arrow key. Let's tap the escape key for a minute to see what exactly we were previewing. When I first selected the option to view full screen, I had the first image selected. If you only have one image selected, Bridge assumes that you want to be able to move through all of the images. If I select a range of images, by holding down the shift key and clicking on this image.

Now if I tap down the space bar in order to go into full screen mode, you'll notice that I don't go through all of my images. But instead I'll only go through those images that were selected and when I reach the end of my selection, It'll bring me back to my first image. Alright. I'll tap the Escape key again. So now you know to preview your images quickly without having to open them in Photoshop, simply select the images you want to see and tap the Spacebar to go into full screen preview mode.
