I'm responsible for displaying pictures at our photography club during monthly judging meetings. The maximum image size permitted for a picture is 1024 x 768 pixels. This is pretty standard across the state. I want to use Lightroom to display the pictures completely filling the monitor and the projected picture on the screen for all to view. I want to use Lightroom so that if requested I can make a virtual copy and jump into develop mode. With a larger resolution picture this works fine by just hitting "F" for full view, but with the small image size I can't get a full size picture. How can I do this.
Our club is in a similar situation, but we use a digital projector with native 1024x768 so images are full screen.
I have tried in both Lightroom and Adobe Bridge to get a 'correct' full-screen image with no luck.
Setting the "Zoom" parameters in Lightroom to toggle with the Spacebar (while in Full-screen mode) makes the image enlarge greater than the screen. There is no option for any 'inbetween' ratio from 1:1 1:2..
I can only suggest using a third-party program such as XnView (freeware) which has a slideshow component that will show full-screen. Then use ALT+TAB to quickly switch between XnView and Lightroom to demo the editing.
