100% pocessing indicator

Postby Ruffles » Fri Mar 18, 2011 2:40 am

Hi. I transferred some pics from my D3 to my iPad1 via an eye-fi card. On the iPad, I wanted to check focus so I double tapped the image to zoom to 100%. The picture looked a bit soft so I tried the next one etc. with the same results. They were sharp on the camera LCD so I was scratching my head. After 6 or 7 seconds, I finally noticed the pictures getting sharper and realized that when zooming the image, it takes time to render. I think adding some sort of progress indicator would be helpful. That way, I would be able to tell at a glance if the picture is soft because I suck as a photographer or just because it's not fully rendered yet.

I've noticed this on my iPad 2 as well, it takes 3-4 seconds to focus. An indicator would be great.
What causes the delay in focusing?

The limited amount of memory and CPU power.

To speed up the overall experience, what you see in the full-size view is a scaled down version of the photo (which takes up less memory and demands less processing power). As you zoom in, the individual areas get re-rendered to show you the higher resolution. Depending on the size of the photo, this can take a little time.

If I don't do this, the app simply takes up too much memory when displaying very large photos and the system would kill it.

I'm done programming the indicator, and it'll be introduced in version 2.1.

There might be chances that on the iPad 2 the need for that is gone... it goes from about 120MB max available RAM for apps to 3 times that, so you should be able to hold an uncompressed image entirely now...

Hopefully when you've got your iPad 2 you can try playing with that ;)
