10.6: Zoom and pan images in column view System 10.6
Snow Leopard only hintWhen using Column View in the Finder, holding the Option key while clicking the preview of an image will zoom the image. Holding Shift-Option while clicking zooms out the image.

Click and drag in a zoomed image pans the image. I discovered this by accident when holding the option key while dragging the preview image during a copy. I mistimed the keypress and mouse click and instead zoomed the image.

[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described. This appears to be Snow Leopard only.]

This is interesting. But, if I want to zoom in on a selected image, I'll just press the Space Bar, and use Apple's QuickLook feature.

Funny, because in QL you can do exactly the same. Sometimes it is practical do zoom an image in column view, though.

You can also zoom in and out the preview holding option and using the scroll wheel.

It's too bad, but this doesn't seem to work with pdfs.

Zooming in and out on file icons of photos can be toggled using <command><option>-click.

This also works for the Get Info preview.
