Fluid Zoom and View Rotation in Photoshop CS4

Today we are going to take a look at a new feature in Photoshop CS4, the Fluid Zoom and View Rotation tools. The Fluid Zoom allows for smooth zooming in and out of an image with much finer control than every before. The View Rotation tool allows you to rotate the view of the image around to make working on an image easier.

    I personally find the zoom to be limiting. I've been using a Griffin PowerMate for a while, and for Photoshop using it to control zoom (among other things). With older versions, this was very responsive, but with this new "fluid zoom," everything feels very slugging (on a powerful computer, mind you). It would be nice to have an option to just turn the darned thing off.
