Lightroom Classic: Color label and star rating in loupe info

When looking at a large photo (loupe view or develop mode) it's hard to see if (and what) color label is applied.
The color labels are at the bottom of the screen. Compared to the photo, the labels are very tiny. If a color is applied, a very small white line (1 or 2 pixels?) is drawn around the color.

It would be nice if the border of the picture could be set (not as default, but as option) to the label color, like the cell color in grid view.
Something like this:


Another option would/could be to display the loupe info in the label color or have it highlighted in the label color.



If star ratings are applied, it would be nice to also see them beneath the loupe info.
Now you have to look at the five stars at the bottom and see if one or more are lit.
Having just the number of stars that are applied in the loupe info, would speed up culling.

I often work with smart collections that only display non rated and/or non labeled photos.
But sometimes I want to be able to apply both a label AND a star, so the smart filter doesn't work there.

Why not use the "Common Attributes" option in the Loupe Info Overlay? It provide Flag status, Rating, and Label colour.

That is good except maybe the actual star and color could be shown in that info. "Rating 1" just isn't as easy on the eyes as a *

Jim, I never tried the Common Attributes, so wasn't aware.
It is indead easier to see than the tiny info below the photo (on a large screen).

But like Steve says, it would be even better/easier to not have to read the info, but be able to see it from the corner of your eye, because it is so clear.

I like the idea of showing just the stars and color square on the upper left, larger. I like the idea of keeping them in the same general format as we see them elsewhere in Lightroom.
