Photoshop Image Navigation Tips, Tricks And Shortcuts

In the previous tutorial, we covered the basics of navigating around our images in Photoshop, from zooming in and out with the Zoom Tool and scrolling with the Hand Tool to a look at some important options under the View menu for quickly fitting an image entirely on screen or jumping instantly to the 100% view size. In this tutorial, we’ll take things up a notch by learning some time-saving tips and shortcuts that will have you navigating your images like the pros!

As with the previous tutorial, I’ll be using Photoshop CS6, but this tutorial is also fully compatible with Photoshop CC (Creative Cloud).
