Zooming with Keyboard Shortcuts in Photoshop Elements 10

Part of the Photoshop Elements 10 All-in-One For Dummies Cheat Sheet

As you use Photoshop Elements 10, you can use keyboard shortcuts for some quick zooms in and out of photos. Here are a few shortcuts to remember when you need to quickly change the zoom level in Photoshop Elements 10:

  • Ctrl++ (Command++ on the Mac): Press the Ctrl (Command) key and the plus (+) key on your keyboard and you zoom in on a photo. Keep pressing the same keys to continue zooming in. By default, when you press these keys, the photo and the Image window zoom together.

  • Ctrl+– (Command+– on the Mac): Press the Ctrl (Command) key and the minus (–) key and you zoom out. Again, the Image window zooms along with the photo.

  • Ctrl+Alt++ (Command+Option++ on the Mac): Press both the Ctrl (Command) and Alt (Option) keys and then press the plus (+) key. The photo zooms in, but the Image window stays fixed at one size.

  • Ctrl+Alt+– (Command+Option+– on the Mac): Press both the Ctrl (Command) and Alt (Option) keys and then press the minus (–) key. The photo zooms out, but the Image window stays fixed at one size.

  • Ctrl+0 (Command+0 on the Mac): Press the Ctrl (Command) key and then 0 (the zero key), and the photo zooms to fit the Image window.

  • Ctrl+spacebar (Command+spacebar on the Mac): This combination temporarily activates the Zoom In tool. For this shortcut to work on a Mac, you need to change the System Preferences and reallocate the Spotlight shortcut to another key combination.

  • Ctrl+Alt+spacebar (Command+Option+spacebar on the Mac): This combination temporarily activates the Zoom Out tool.
