I post macro photos in Stock, which at 25% exhibit full size and resolution.  When zoomed to 100%, the photos are extremely detailed to the point that they show noise and artifacts that otherwise would not show at smaller zoom levels.  I know the standard for an acceptable resolution is 100%.  When photos are in Review...is there an ajustment for acceptable zoom for macros and closeups?  I have not had any rejects so far.  In Photoshop Image Size I generally set at 300 ppi and 25" on the short side of the photo, and this tends to create issues at 100%.  Perhaps I should use a smaller size than 25"?

Image size should have zero effect on the 100% view. Unless you click resample. You must not do that on stock you plan to sell.
