Full Screen Scroll

Just because your image is in Full Screen mode doesn’t mean that you can’t scroll around: Hold down the spacebar (to get the Hand tool) and drag. In the Full Screen mode, you can use the Hand tool to slide past the edge of the image into the gray or black area, no matter how far you’re zoomed in; going past the edge is something scroll bars can’t do (see Figure 3). Scrolling past the image edge is useful when you’re cropping or retouching close to the edge of an image, and it’s a big reason Conrad prefers the Full Screen mode over the Maximized mode.
