Histogram showing saturated pixels more clearly

Post by Rab722 »

I wonder if the horizontal scale on the histogram where the 100% saturated pixels are shown could be moved to the left to be able to better see how many are there. Plus maybe a quantity or % of pixels of R G and B are in saturation displayed. I would like to check this when setting gain and exposure. Or is this info already there in some other form.

Hi,

I'm not sure exactly what you mean here, maybe a screenshot with a highlight indicating the bits that you think should be moved would be helpful. If it's related to the number of pixels with a particular brightness on the main histogram then I wondered if you are aware that you can hover your mouse over any point on the histogram and it will show the information on the brightness and number of pixels corresponding to the mouse position next to the mouse cursor.

Cheers, Robin
