Is there a way to preview JPEG quality settings during export?

    Look for Recipe Proofing. This will present an on-screen fully baked version of the currently selected export recipe.

    Format & Size and Summary in the Export menu both show settings. Is that what you need?

    Thanks Walter!

    Do you know if there's a way to show two or three Recipes side by side? So I would make 2 or 3 recipes, all the same size (for my website), changing only the JPEG quality, let's say 80, 60 and 40, allowing me to see those 3 proofed variations on my Viewer screen (I use a dual monitor setup, so Browser on one screen, Viewer on the other)? 

    Thanks!

    If you create 3 recipes with different settings you can readily change between them but only one recipe displayed at a time so far as I am aware.

    However, cycling through the recipes should still give you a good impression of the difference.

    I prefer that as one's eyes do not have to move to see the comparison.

    Yeah, that's a good approach, but we each see and compare things differently. I often like a side to side comparison for something like this, it's how I often cull images. One of C1's big strengths is the ability to approach a solution with multiple workflows, so was hoping to figure out a way to do that. Just knowing I can use Proofing (should have figured that out myself, doh!), shows I can probably shave a few more kb's off my file sizes. Hoping once I add in JPEGmini I can get my website loading really quickly!
