P: Loupe Overlay - Layout Image - To Be Shown On 2nd Monitor

Hi all, 

 

I regularly shoot tethered to Lightroom with my Hasselblad. I shoot directly to a MacBook Pro with a 2nd monitor that faces away from me to allow clients/art directors to view the images as they are shot. When I want to overlay copy/text using the 'Loupe Overlay - Layout Image' tool this does not display on the second monitor but only on the MacBook (Main/1) display. Is it possible to do this? Or can I request it be added as a feature? This also applies to the other tool in the 'Loupe Overlay' namely the guides and grid options.

 

It's a shame no one else can see the image on a big screen with the text overlaid!

 

Thanks!

Hello, yes the inability to view any of the  'loupe overlay' features on the 2nd monitor is annoying. It is good for clients to see the image with layout on top on the 2nd monitor whilst I can work on the image on the main display - especially whilst tethered, this is a feature within Capture One where you can see the overlay on a second screen. Ideally you could toggle when it is on/off for each monitor. 

 

The actual 'Layout Image' section could almost do with its own tool panel with recent files to switch between and opacity /scale/crop to fit options. 

 

For starters just it being visible on the 2nd monitor would be an extremely handy additional feature!!

I couldn't agree more, this feature woukld be invaluable. I find it so frustrating that that the cleints watch my second moniotr then I have to get them over to the laptop to see the actual image in their layout. It just feels a bit disjointed in offerening a smooth workflow.

Please add this feature.
