Actual pixels

Photoshop calls the 100-percent zoom ratio the actual-pixels view. This is the most accurate view size because you can see the image as it really is. Reduced view sizes drop pixels; magnified view sizes stretch pixels. Only the actual-pixels view displays each pixel without a trace of screen distortion.

You can switch to this most accurate of view sizes at any time using one of the following techniques:

♦ Press Ctrl+Alt+0. (That's a zero, not the letter O.)

♦ Double click the zoom tool icon in the toolbox.

♦ Click the Actual Pixels button, which appears on the Options bar when the zoom tool is selected.
