Surely on more than one occasion we have found ourselves in front of an image that is too small to edit, in this case the ideal is to zoom in or out of an image in GIMP . In this way we can work or edit the photo in an extremely comfortable way..

Luckily, GIMP has several functions to be able to Zoom images and photos, this way it will be easier to crop, rotate and resize in GIMP; In short, edit a photo more comfortably and precisely.

A little further down we will see each of these functions and it will be you who decides which one best suits your needs..

How to zoom in or out of any image or photo in GIMP

Zoom Tool

It will simply be a matter of clicking on the Zoom tool in the toolbox to be able to zoom out the image, we can also click on the Zoom icon that is in the right corner of the canvas ruler.

After clicking on Zoom, we will see the Tool Options section just below that will show us an automatic resizing window and another option to zoom in or out of the image..

Use Zoom presets

We are going to have to click on the "View" tab found in the menu bar, position the cursor on Zoom and then we can choose any of the levels that are available in this menu.

We also have another method to choose a Zoom preset, we will simply click on the Zoom preset button found in the lower central part of GIMP and in the drop-down menu we can find Zoom levels.

Use the zoom in and out function

image

From the "View" section at the top, we will be able to use the Zoom option, from here we can expand or exit the menu.

Using the fit picture to window feature

image

If we click on "View", we position the cursor on Zoom and then we click on "Fit image in window" we can achieve this effect. This will make your photo fit the window perfectly.

Use the fill window function

Another function found in the "View" menu is precisely that of "Fill window" within the "Zoom" submenu. The image will be enlarged up to 335%.
