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.
