    Not quite sure I understood your setup correctly. What do you see on your screen when the Viewer is on the clients screen?

    There is a tool in C1 called Navigator which kind of controls the Viewer, do you know it? Not overly convenient but you can zoom to fit / zoom to 100% (via the 3 dots menu only) and move a rectangle representing the crop.

    cheers

    P.S.

    Ah, I see! You have another Viewer window open, don't you? If both viewers have the same zoom %, then the navigator rectangle contols both viewers identically when panning. ALso when you hold down the Shift key and pan in one of the viewers.

    What's missing: Have both viewers in sync (linked) such that zoom level changes in the navigator or in one of the viewers apply to both viewers.

    (I'm on Windows)

    Wouldn't the image server help you here? The client could then use their own device, or one you provided, without disturbing your work.

    I would say Capture Pilot would ideal for your purpose.

    Yes that's correct, I have main screen with all the tools / adjustments / chronosync's, and a satellite screen with Viewer window just for photographer / client. I always offer an iPad but people prefer to see it large on a 24" screen while I flick through and rate images, so capture pilot is not an option.

    There is never time to explain clients how to use certain software / devices and they tend to have very little willingness to do so. They only want to say yes/no to images. On the last shoot photographer has insisted not to use iPad's as the "big" client only needed to see the rated images that we had on the screen.

    Yes, that's what I'm after in this case!

    That makes totally sense to me. I suggest you file an enhancement request together with your explanation, I could imagine other pros would benefit from a viewer sync (and maybe browser sync) too.

    No other idea from my side...

    Check out Duet for iPad. Turns it into a basic extra screen.

    You could 'screen mirror' the iPad and the client display and the iPad can be your personal reference.

    Hey Grant,

    That's actually a really good idea, I have used Duet Display & other apps before but only when I had one main screen. Just wondering if you can choose which screens to mirror? I remember OSX settings being very simplistic, hopefully it doesn't just mirror ALL screens.

    It would have to be...

    Screen A - Eizo (main screen)
    Screen B - Eizo (satelite photog / client screen)
    Screen C - iPad (reference for Screen B)

    Mirror B+C only

    Hope you're well! Been a while since university huh, must admit I don't miss Blackpool!

    Correct, you can pick which hero monitor you'd like to mirror.

    Don't miss Blackpool all that much, either... Cheers bro!
