What I’d Love To See Next in Lightroom — Part 3

Before we roll on to #3 on my wish list, I just wanted to thank everybody who has posted their wish list favorites as comments here. I’m going to compile a list of my favorites from your favorites once we reach the 10th on my list, so keep ’em coming — there’s some great stuff in there, including some things I didn’t realize i wanted until I read your comments.

Print Sharpen Preview

OK, onto #3 on my wish list which is…

#3: I’d love to have a preview of Output Sharpening

You get three choices for the amount: Low, Normal, High, and I-d like to see a preview of now each looks before I hit Print (or Export in the case of saving out a JPEG or TIFF). Of course, while I’m here I’d probably prefer a slider, instead of just the three pre-set choices, but that’s not high enough on my list— I’m OK with just the three — I just want to see a preview of how each is actually going to look before I make the print.

Though, while I’m asking for sharpening previews, how about a soft-proofing preview that shows sharpening as well? OK, I’d better cut it off there.

Alrighty then, — that’s #3.

See ya on Monday, and keep those ideas coming.
