Zoom in / zoom out on images

By default when you click the Add Comment button, the Image Annotation editor displays the image at 100% zoom. Large images may not be completely visible in the editor, so scroll bars appear on the right and bottom sides of the editor. The image annotation editor allows you to zoom in and zoom out on images allowing you to focus on specific details within the image, or to view the entire large image within the editor.

  1. In the Image Annotation editor window, click the Image Added Zoom In button to enlarge the image within the editor. Use the scroll bars on the right and bottom edges of the editor if the entire image cannot be viewed in the editor.

    You may manually change the zoom to a specific percentage by typing in the Canvas Zoom field and hitting the Enter key on the keyboard.

    Image Added

    You may zoom in on an image to as much as 500%, and you may zoom out on an image to as little as 10%.
