Dual Screen Solution??

Hi folks, first post, and would appreciate some assistance with a dual screen setup, or even if it's possible.

I'm using Photoshop on a laptop, powerful enough for what I need to do, which is touching up old photographs. I'd save a lot of time if I didn't have to zoom in, touch up, zoom out, then review. Instead, I'd prefer to zoom in on laptop screen only, stayed zoomed in, but have a second screen, just an ordinary monitor, possibly 21", always zoomed out.

Is this possible? Laptop has HDMI and s-video outputs.

Although from your viewpoint your query relates to photos, it actaully relates to graphic card capability. Hence, it might have attracted more attention if posted in the Helproom.

I believe that the video ouput generated by the card will have the same characterics on any output. These will be in just a differently modulated form. So, if you zoom, all outputs will show a zoomed picture.Since you have a laptop, it might be possible for you to connect to a TV via one of the outputs to confirm this. I believe you would two video cards to achieve your aim.

NO.
Learn the PS short cut keys - to zoom in Control and plus and same again but use the minus key to zoom out. David
