Feature Request - Full Screen View of DNG item

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Daminion uses the JPG preview of the DNG file for the Full Screen View.

To decide about the quality of the photo (sharpness) I use the 100% view of the DNG item.

But here you don't see the quality of the original DNG file - you see the expanded JPG preview. And this preview is - and must be - blurred compared to open the DNG file in Photshop (100% view) or other Viewer which are using the DNG and not the JPG preview.

I would like to have an option to select either the JPG preview or the original DNG for the Full Screen View.

If I use the option "Fit Image" of the Full Screen View the JPG quality is good enough.

Yes, I know, it is maybe a little bit slower to render the DNG.

Are there other user interested in getting this feature? Any comments?

 

Regards, uwe

When you select 100% Zoom option Daminion stretches the built-in JPEG preview that is usually smaller than original DNG file. So you see a bit blurred RAW preview. We can fix this behavior so you'll see the JPEG preview as is without stretching when 100% Zoom option will be selected.

 

We keep an approach do not render RAW images, and instead show the built-in JPEG previews. And this is not due to a slow rendering speed - but because of each RAW editor use it's own proprietary image adjustment algorithms to render RAW images. And in 100% cases the resulted RAW preview generated by Daminion will be different than the picture you'll see in your RAW editor.

 

I understand that you need this only to estimate the quality of the original image so color differences might not be a problem. But we need to collect some votes to enable this option.

Hello,

 

does it mean: you can see the embedded JPEG in 100% preview mode?

This is not what I would like to have but I understood and accepted the fact that Daminion can't implement a RAW Viewer for all different formats right now.

 

Regards, Uwe
