While I was using the free trial of Lightroom for the past month, I really came to appreciate the Compare mode when selecting the best shot from a group of similar frames. In fact, it handles this so much better than Bridge, I decided to buy.
Well, after installing the purchased version of LR, I'm missing a couple of "features." Gone is the "make select" option in compare mode (I can still right-click and "swap images"), and I can no longer adjust the thumbnail size in grid mode or access the image size slider in compare mode (I can still click to view at 100%). Have I done something to hide these features or did LR do away with them when it updated itself last? I'm using the newest version 1.2.
Any help appreciated.
Jason--assuming this in Library module, vs. 1.2? First things first--to adjust the thumb size in grid, there is a slider at the bottom of the window when you are in grid mode that allows you to adjust the thumb size.
I'm not sure of what you mean exactly (I can't remember) but---below the photos on the right you will find two x/y with arrows. The first with the two arrows is the swap icon, the next with the one arrow in the middle is the 'make select' icon. However your mouse over them and you will see what they stand for.
Hope this helps.
