I have shot tethered from my Canon 1Ds3 to Apple MBP 5.1 (10.9.1) using Canon DDP and EOS Utility with no issues. After subscribing to Adobe's Creative Cloud, I thought that I would utilize LR5 but I can only get rather small previews of the images. I prefer the large previews and I know that my Clients like them too. Can I change the previews in LR5 to be nearly full screen? I have looked at LR5's preferences but didn't see an option.

Can you explain a bit more about the "small previews"? Do you perhaps mean the Grid view? You can change the Loupe view by pressing the E key, and hide all of the side/top/bottom panels by pressing Shift-tab.

Sorry for the late response but I just cannot seem to warm up to shooting tethered with LR5. It seems that Canon is slow to update their software when Apple rolls out a new OS and tethered shooting is not compatible. I like the full screen and vertical oriented previews as you shoot with EOS Utility and I cannot seem to replicate that with LR5. If I cannot get the desired effect, I'll simply have to wait to upgrade to Apples new Yosemite OS.
