Tip #24. If you are in the middle of doing something and you want to zoom in, just zoom in. Your tool won’t change into something else and start doing what you didn’t want. You can also press the space bar (if you aren’t making a selection) and move your image over to where you can see what you are doing, too. Yep, right in the middle of painting a mask, you can adjust what you are looking at!

Thanks for the tips! As for the "just zoom in", I'm not sure exactly what that means. I typically use my middle mouse wheel, but short of that, I don't know how to zoom without changing the tool to the zoom tool. Is there another way besides the little wheel on the mouse?

Tips # 3, 4 and 5 covered zooming in and out with keyboard shortcuts. You won't have to change to a different tool.
