Zoom more accurately with iPhoto2 Apps
Now that we have a nice little touch-up brush with iPhoto2, it would be to be able to zoom in on an area instead of the center and then moving to where we want to edit. Now we can!

When you have your photo in edit mode, click and drag to select an area of the photo. Now hit zoom, and it will zoom in on the selected area instead of the dead center of the picture.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Now hit zoom" but selecting an area in the edit view followed by selecting "Zoom Window" in the Window menu doesn't do much. But moving the little slider to the right of the "Book" tab sure does the trick. Thanks for the tip.

I could have edited that a bit cleaner :-) ... but yea, hit the Zoom slider.

This isn't new

It was in version 1.x of iPhoto as well. In fact, the exact same glitch with it that was in 1.x remains in version 2.0. If you select an area and then click in the zoom bar (as opposed to dragging the slider) it will zoom to the center of the image instead of the selected area. If you then drag the zoom bar slightly either way it will jump to your selected area.

This was in iPhoto 1 too. I thought everybody knew that... how could one put up with having to move your image after zooming?
