Photoshop Scrubby Zoom & Animated Zoom

There are so many ways to zoom in and out of Photoshop files. Here is a couple that I got confused.

  • Animated Zoom: provides a smooth, continuous zoom into the image. With the Zoom Tool (or keyboard shortcut equivalent), click and hold to zoom in. Alt to zoom out
  • Scrubby Zoom: Also provides a smooth continuous zoom. With the Zoom tool, Click and scrub right to zoom in. Scrub Left to zoom out.

Some people have found scrubby zoom annoying. The speculation is that it primarily benifits laptop users with a trackpad.

  • To turn off Scrubby Zoom, select the Zoom Tool and deselect “scrubby zoom” from the Control Bar / Options Bar
  • To turn off Animated Zoom, go to Preferences > General
  • The “Resize Window to Fit” option on the Options Panel and the “Zoom Resizes Windows” option in Preferences are the same option.
