Can I Zoom In On My Screen In Mac OS X?

Question:

Sometimes I can't read text or want to zoom in on images. Is there any easy way to zoom system-wide in Mac OS X?

Answer:

Yes, with Mac OS X Snow Leopard it's easy to zoom in and zoom out in any application.

First, turn on zoom by pressing Option-Command-8 or fn Command-F11.

Then, zoom in by pressing Option-Command-Plus or zoom out with Option-Command-Minus. You can also zoom in by holding Control and dragging two fingers up. Zoom out by holding Control and dragging two fingers down.
