Re: Please define "pixel peeping".

"Pixel peeping" is a derogatory term used to describe people who examine photographic output at the pixel (100%) level.

There are times when minute examination is useful and times when it is pointless.  Sensible people only do it when it's worthwhile.  Unfortunately there are also people who don't understand the benefits (when they apply) and mindlessly apply the term to anyone who looks closely at things.
