Small images open / load to "fit on screen" instead of 100% zoom

Recommended Posts

Small images open / load to "fit on screen" instead of 100% zoom, and thus appear pixellated / blurry.

It happens always when i open a new image or load a snapshot, and probably some other cases as well.

It's very annoying because it's not practical to have small images zoomed to 179% by default, except some edge cases when working on pixel-graphics.

I don't think it's a bug. The default view is Zoom to Fit. I guess when you load a smaller image, just press the keyboard shortcut of CTL + 0 (windows), which is 100% zoom.

I have to press CTRL+0 a hundred times over a 30min-session. Is this an efficient workflow? Not to mention that comparing snapshots gets even more difficult this way.

If the default is to fit the screen, there should be a setting were we can change the default.

Photoshop and every other program i used defaults to 100% zoom if image is smaller than the window, and "Fit the screen" if image is bigger than the window. Stupidly fitting to window size, no matter the context, is a "sledgehammer solution for everything".

[EDIT] If this is not a bug, would some moderator please move the thread into the feature requests section? Much appreciated!
