In the Library and Develop modules, set your preferred zoom views to either  Fit or Fill and 1:1 or Custom Zoom by clicking on the preferred option in the Navigator panel’s header. Then, use the Spacebar to zoom between your preferred zoom views (or click with the Zoom tool while in Loupe view).

You can also use the Command (Mac) / Control (Win) + “+” or “-” (plus or minus) toggles through all zoom levels (from Grid to Fit, Fill, 1:1 and Custom zoom).

    Julieanne – Thank you for all of the wonderful Lightroom tips!!! It’s the “little things” that make using a program so much easier.

    My Olympus E-M5 allows me to select a still image, zoom in without loss of detail, crop and
    edit—-all in camera.
    When I zoom in and crop in LR5, there is a hugh loss of quality.
    Is it me, or the limitations of LR?
