IPTC preview zoom 4.4.3.2
« on: August 02, 2006, 09:59:17 PM »
Don't lnow if this is expected behaviour, BUT when you click on the preview to zoom, it's just a rescale of the thumbnail.. and therefor very very blocky.

What is the file format of the images that you are zooming into?  What OS are you running, and what version is the OS.

I misunderstood what you're saying.  I didn't realize you were talking about the IPTC Info dialog thumbnail preview.

I just tried mine.  It zooms in at less than 1/2 second.  It is initially blocky, but then zooms in real nice.

OK, here's a Mac problem related to the 4.4.3.2 IPTC Info zoom feature:

On a G5 2.3DP running OSX 10.4.6, the Control-Z option will not zoom the preview window (but clicking on it with the cursor does work, and with smooth, proper resolution).

On an Intel powered MacBook running 10.4.7, the Control-Z option DOES work as expected, as does the cursor click on the preview, which expands to smooth, proper resolution.

Checking the other keyboard shortcuts available for the IPTC Info window, and they all appear to work properly on the G5 (didn't try every single one). Just the preview zoom shortcut does not.

Make sure you don't have the CAPS LOCK key down, nor the shift key.  And you have to hold it down for as long as you want to see the higher resolution version.

My G5 2.0 GHz DP machine works fine.  Ctrl-z zooms the thumbnail which resolves very quickly.

Well, that did the trick! I had the caps lock turned on. Good to know for future reference... Thanks!

Found the problem .... I have PM set to generate low rez thumbnails, switched it to Hi Rez and they display fine. Can't zoom the image though, not that I expected to be able to.
