Previews needed for files on local disk?



  • Paul Steunebrink
    Hi Mercator,

    CO8 always uses the previews, no matter you use session or catalogs, no matter where your images are stored. The recommended size of previews is the amount of pixels of your monitor (rule of thumb) horizontally.

    A larger preview gives you more zoom-in capabilities before CO8 needs to access the original raw file. Small previews are not recommended as CO8 must always read the entire raw again and again when you make a move.
