Everyone knows the Crop tool is handy and quick for cropping an image. But once you have the area you want to crop selected, your only options are to transform the bounding box handles on the crop box, commit or cancel the crop. You can’t zoom in or out for a better preview of what you’re cropping. Or can you?


It’s true, you can’t select the Zoom tool from the Toolbox when you have an active crop on your image, but you can still use its functionality with a modifier key.
