How to pan with the hand tool in Photoshop CS6 when the view is "Fit on screen"?


Question

I would like to be able to pan an image while I'm seeing 100% of the image, but Photoshop doesn't allow me to do. Do you know any workarounds?

I'm using Windows.

With Photoshop CC

Simply tick the Overscroll option in the Preferences...

This may or may not be part of CS6 or early CC versions.. if you can't find it in the Preferences based upon the above screenshot... see below.

Tap the F key and enter full screen mode. You can pan to your heart's content.

There is also an optional plug in (apparently only available for the Macintosh) titled "Overscroll Always" which can be installed to allow panning at any time.
