OS X Zoom Mode

Man, you have to love Apple’s accessibility efforts. Next time you’re in OS X and want to scope someone’s [detailed pixel work] up close without copy/pasting into Photoshop do this instead: Press apple-option-* to enable/toggle zoom mode. Then apple-option- to toggle anti-aliasing on zoomed objects. Point your mouse at the area of interest and press/hold apple-option-plus to zoom (apple-option-minus to restore the default view). This zooms the entire screen (including the Finder/menubar) and follows your mouse. Fat fingers and Photoshop helped me stumble across this. There are some additional options in System Preferences >> Universal Access. Sweet.
