"Hands up if you have pixel peeping tendencies... Well this one is for you!

Knowing how to zoom in and how far is a simple but crucial part of the editing process. In this week's Editing Toolbox, I'm delving in to the zoom tools and shortcuts in both Lightroom and Photoshop.

I'll also be revealing why you should never zoom in to more than 100% for some things, no matter how tempting it might be, and why it's really helpful not to go super close for other things.
