Update! Click here (Zoom, Pan, and Navigate Documents in Photoshop CC) to see all zoom, pan, and navigation tips for Photoshop CC in one post.

When I have several images that are all tiled and I need to zoom in or out on one of them without changing the size of the window, I toggle off Preference / General / Zoom Resizes Window. If you prefer to leave your preference toggled on, then you can temporarily stop the window from resizing by adding the Option (Mac) / Alt (Win) key to the old standby – Command (Mac) / Control (Win) “+” (plus) to zoom in, Command (Mac) / Control (Win) “-” (minus) to zoom out. If I remember correctly, I believe that this default behaviors are reversed on the Windows platform (i.e. zooming doesn’t resize the window by default) but you can still customize your preference on either platform.
