    Does anyone know to put the image you're working on at the left of the monitor and have the same image on the right so as you zoom in on the right image to work on it, the left image stays the same, thereby allowing you to see your final effect. I read it somewhere, tried it ( and it works) and forgot to take notes. I'm using PS7. Many thanks

    Have a guess :)

    No idea I'm afraid - what I do is tick the "zoom on mouse wheel" option in preferences and then just roll the wheel to zoom in and out (unless I'm using my Wacom tablet in which case I just run my finger around the touch ring to zoom in/out )

    I think this is what you are looking for.

    Go to <Windows>Arrange>New Window for.....(Whatever image you have open in Photoshop)

    This duplicates the image and if you zomm it up to see the detail any changes you make are repeated on the original unzoomed image.

    This is in CS3 but I am fairly sure it works in other other versions as well and quite possibly in Elements.

    The desire in the original post was to have the original remain the same, so the applied changes can be compared to the original as one rummages about in the controls.

    I haven't tried this, but, is it possible to have the image open twice? hmmmm I'll have to try this after I get off line.
