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.

A quick way to navigate to another part of an image is to use “Birds-Eye View”. With any tool selected, hold down the “H” key (to temporarily select the Hand tool) and click in the image area to “crash”-zoom the image to Fit on Screen. Drag to reposition the rectangle and release the Hand tool to zoom in on that area.
