Re: What is 100%?

Does this mean twice the size of the original image (as on the computer screen)?


It means ALL of the pixels in the sensor (100% of them) are assigned their own display pixel on screen.

When using Picasa, I often view my images at "1:1".

"1:1" is just another way of expressing the same pixel-for-pixel display condition as 100%.


Or does this mean blowing up the image SOOOO large that one can easily recognize the single square pixels?

If you can see the camera pixels as actual squares you have enlarged BEYOND the 100% point...  (to 200%, 300%, 400%, etc.).
