    I would like to know if it's possible to pan (or scroll) over a photo when zoomed in Aperture. Even if it's holding down a modifier key and doing some gesture-based motion, or requires me to move the mouse, anything will be better that having to constantly zoom in and out to move around and make brush adjustments.

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

    Hold down the spacebar, then click and drag with the hand tool. Works just like Adobe apps, if you're familiar with those.

    I was not aware, so I am very grateful for that tip.

    Thanks.

    Another Question...

    Is there a keyboard shortcut or gesture to quickly increase or decrease the zoom level?

    Command+ (zoom in) and Command- (zoom out)

    Also useful...

    Simply pressing "Z" zooms to your cursor.

    Pressing the "~" key enables the loupe. I like to configure the loupe to follow my cursor, rather than the loupe itself.
