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.

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.

I don't like to use full screen but I prefer the plugin you suggested, thanks! –  Totty.js Jul 23 '13 at 20:19
Well, but the plugin is not available for windows... :/ –  Totty.js Jul 23 '13 at 20:27
ooh ouch. I see that. I wasn't aware you were on a Windows system. I don't know what you can do in that case other than full screen mode. –  Scott Jul 23 '13 at 20:30
I didn't specified :/ but I will wait for someone to find out something else. But thanks for your full screen tip (: –  Totty.js Jul 23 '13 at 22:18
