Hola, welcome to FasTuts Photoshop!

Becoming comfortable with moving and interacting with the canvas will go a long way towards mastery over Photoshop and using it successfully for design. Below is a list of the fundamental tips techniques and methods for navigating in Photoshop successfully:

MOVE
Space (hold) – Hand tool (panning)

Enabling Overscroll – Removes the restrictions of the hand tool (edit – preferences – tools)

Ctrl+right-click – Layer menu shortcut (best in mac) (just right-click if you have the move tool selected)

Hold R: rotate (Esc to exit) THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN BEFORE THE ZOOM SECTION IN THE VIDEO, OOPS

ZOOM
Enable Scrubby Zoom – Changes the zoom tool’s behavior from marquee select to scrubby zoom.

“Z” (hold) – Scrubby zoom

Alt+scroll – clicky zoom

Ctrl+1: 100%

Ctrl+0: Fill Screen

With time moving around in Photoshop will become second nature. Hopeful these tips will help to accelerate your growth.
Buckle up buttercup, you’re about to go pro.
