PhotoStructure has a several ways to view your photos at different magnification levels.
Magnification levels #
- When navigating to a asset, PhotoStructure, by default, fits the entire photo or video to the screen.
100%displays the image in “1:1”, or 1 image pixel to 1 virtual display pixel. If you have a HiDPI display, several display pixels will render a single image pixel.
Changing magnification levels #
- You can select a zoom level directly by clicking the loupe slider in the header. Note that this slider is hidden when you’re using PhotoStructure on smaller screens, on touch screens, or when you’ve rotated your image or video (until that rotation is committed to your library).
- Click on the center of an image or hit the
zkey to toggle between fit and zoom.
- Hold down the shift key and mousewheel up and down to zoom smoothly in and out.
- On non-touchscreen displays, pan around the image by moving your mouse over the image.
- You can’t pan images when in
fitmode: the image is already completely visible.
- Holding the
shiftkey allows you to move the mouse without panning over the image.
- As you zoom in, a higher resolution image will be loaded in-place of the current image.
- When you rotate the current image, zooming is disabled to make sure you can see what you’re doing.
- When you’re viewing a video, zooming is disabled.
- The zoom level is reset when navigating between images.
