Photoshop Editing Quick Tip: Edit Zoomed In & Out at Same Time

Do you ever get frustrated as you are editing in Photoshop when you are doing detailed edits and retouching?  Do you wish you could be zoomed in close, but also see the overall effect on the photo? If so, you will love this trick!

Just go to WINDOW – NEW WINDOW (for..) and it will make a mirror of your image.  You can zoom in and out of one.  As you make changes it happens to both in real time.

As you can see here I drew a heart and it went onto both images.  So really you have one image being viewed two ways.  Great for all kinds of detailed retouching!

    This is something I will use often, thanks! You are the best! One question. How do you load photos to be accessible at the bottom of the windows tab? Can that be done in CS2?

    Went to look, as I have PSE6…can the same be done? Our window tab is VERY different than what is shown here for CS3 or 4?

    Went to look, as I have PSE6…can the same be done? Our window tab is VERY different than what is shown here for CS3 or 4? I did find “A new window for” then your file name is listed, under view in PSE6. Will have to play around and see if it edits both in real time, as shown here.

    Yeah!!! Sorry to keep commenting, guess I should have checked it out before commenting each time. It does work in PSE6, the new window for, is under view. In case there are any other PSE users out there.
