    Aperture help request: Inspect Images at 100% What does this mean?

    I am a new member. I have a pentax k 5 and several old manual lenses.

    I use Aperture to process my photos. There is something I see that I simply don't understand, namely, the call to inspect images at 100% to make sure they are free of noise, dust, and scratches. How does one do this and how does one do it in Aperture?

    Thanks for helping me on this question. Keith

    I just started with this program so take this advice as that of newbie as well.

    In the upper right hand corner of the screen,when you are doing adjustments, is an icon that looks like an inverted shotglass or a magnifying loupe that people used to use on negatives or slides. Click this and you will get a magnifying glass you can move over the image. Alternatively; on the lower right, the first icon in the row starting from the left side of the icons, is a square button with two over riding rectangles; click this and you can zoom in to 100%

    You can use either the magnifying glass or the first box on the lower right to magnify your image to 500%-1600%+, if you really want to pixel peep. But 100% gives you a clear idea if you truly achieved focus on a particular shot. It will also give you an idea what will happen if you enlarge to print. Aperture 3 is friendly. Play around with it.

    Place the cursor on the part of the image you want to inspect and hit "z". You'll zoom in at 100% and have a small option box where you can adjust the zoom power. Just hit "z" again to exit.
