LR4 - need more and intelligent zoom settings

Feb 6, 2012 1:12 AM

LR4 has now 1:16 and 11:1 - but what I really miss is a setting to show 12MPix as 6MPix. This is useful for the Fuji S5 PRO and also several compact cameras.


The setting would be


1 : 1.4142


1.4142 : 1


Even better would be an option to zoom to a given Megapixel count -






This will be even more useful with the new megapixel cameras such as NEX7 etc.


Without such a mode it is very difficult to compare images which have been taken with different output size settings. I am missing such a feature for yeas now.

    For me, compare mode is made to campare two almost identical photos and reject the worse.

    Zoom to fit to evaluate composition and zoom di 1:1 or greater for pixel peeping.

    Intermediate zooms are soft by nature so a 6MP at 1:1 will often be sharper than a 24MP image at 1:2.

    I don't think it would be a good idea to "match" zoom level for such different resolutions, IMHO.
