When I have an image that I know contains detail that warrants zooming, I make a copy and crop enough so that the detail is apparent when displayed full screen. (I don't crop so much that the image will end up at 100% when displayed on a two megapixel 1080P HDTV. That is a lot of cropping. Or zooming.) And then save the copy with a slightly different name. This way there is no zooming during the presentation. And it works when the images are printed as 4x6s.

A simpler solution which I employ if the image quality is sub-optimal is to use 50% magnification. Works like charm

In your original post you said

In some cases, the picture contains multiple subjects and many interesting details, so I switch to 100% magnification and show specific parts which include details I consider worth focusing on.

Which is why I wrote assuming that you always zoomed to 100%.

You still might want to consider cropping and saving with a slightly different filename.  So that your collection doesn't depend on you manually zooming and panning to point out the interesting parts.   Think of posterity.

And is this maybe a first world problem?
