    How can zoom into an image by dragging?


      Dear all,


      There is a checkbox to zoom an image by dragging. It is disabled. How can I activate this checkbox?

          Scrubby zoom requires suitable hardware acceleration to be available. Since you have not provided any system info or details like the relevant preference settings nor actually told us your PS version we can't know anything.

            You mean Scrubby Zoom?


            You need to have an image open, of course.


            Also, the Use Graphics Processor needs to be enabled in Photoshop(Edit)>Preferences>Performance

            (restart photoshop after checking the Use Graphics Processor box)

            (Photoshop cs5 is Enable OpenGL Drawing)



            Which operating system and version of photoshop are you using?


            Do you know how much vram your graphics card has?

                Are you using a laptop or desktop?


                Since photoshop reports that OpenGL Drawing: Disabled. in the system info you posted

                OpenGL-tekenen: Uitgeschakeld.

                You probably need to update your graphics card drivers from the amd website or the maker of your computer, since the installed drivers are way out of date.

                (windows almost always installs out of date drivers for graphics cards)



                But even if you do update your graphics card drivers, you may not still have all the open gl functions, since that card is kinda old.

                Have you tried going to Edit>Preferences>Performance in photoshop and checking Use Graphics Processor?

                  Dear mr Kelly,


                  I'm using a desktop.

                  Indeed Open GL drawing is not activated.


                  I've tried updating to the Catalyst


                  2014-08-24 21_37_26-Downloads.png

                  suite resulting in this download but when I run this download my computer restarts, because it can't be executed.


                  Yes, I tried going to Edit> Preferences > Performance but activating Use Graphics Processor is greyed out.


                  I'm supposed you're right if you say it's kinda old.


                  Guess I must buy me a newer one.
