Join Colin Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding previews, part of Lightroom 1.3 for Digital Photographers.
The way that Lightroom shows us the large previews is by actually generating a…JPEG image on the fly. For example, let's choose this image here.…And we are going to look at it in the Loupe View.…First of all, we'll hide the sidebars by hitting the Tab key.…Now we want to look at this image.…There is another keyboard shortcut which enables us to zoom in to the loupe, and…it actually toggles between the Loupe and the Grid view.…And that's Tilde key. That's at the top-left of your keyboard.…So let's hit the Tilde key right now and here we go in the Loupe View.…
Now if I click once, we are going to zoom in, but notice as I do this, something happens.…As I zoom in, notice it says Rendering: Larger Preview.…Notice that the image looks soft right now, and then give it a moment.…Once it's fully rendered, see how the image becomes sharp.…That's because that 1:1 JPEG has now been generated.…What we have been looking at originally, let me just tab back here, and we'll…just hit the Tilde key, go back out again. Let's go back into another image.…
