New Sub-sampling Option


The PL5 release notes, see extract below, say that there is a new sub-sampling option. My interpretation of the text is that when sub-sampling is disabled, more detail will be visible when viewing images at less than 75% in the editor; this may or may not be correct however.

Whatever it is, I can’t see a way to enable / disable this facility in Edit/Preferences.

Please can someone let me know whether my interpretation is correct and how to enable / disable sub-sampling.

Many thanks, Peter

In the Display tab of Preferences under Preview Quality there is a check box for Always prefer high quality previews.

I don’t think the behavior when viewing at <75% has changed. However, with high quality previews you can drag adjustment sliders without the image in the viewer becoming blurry while the adjustment is applied.

Thanks that confirms what I’m seeing i.e. that the image is still fuzzy when zoom is less than 75%. It’s a pity because this is the only significant issue I have with Photolab and the release notes made me hope that the behaviour had been changed.

Nonetheless it is still a great product and v5 does export DeepPrime more quickly than v4, which is very welcome.

Best wishes, Peter
