What exactly is pixel peeping?
1 month ago

I think I have an idea.  Is it people that look closely at photos for minute amounts of corner sharpness, or vignetting, or is it people actually zooming in as close as possible and retouching individual pixels.

Is it good or bad to do.  I just have started noticing myself really looking at minor details and findiing I have to have them just perfect.
