I see that I can select an option to have show the index number of a given collection in the Grid Module, but can't find the option to show the index number in Loupe View. 

Please add Index to Loupe View options. Thank you.

That option doesn't appear to exist, probably because of that mode (Loupe) mode where only one image appears:



Why would seeing this when viewing a single image be important?

When working on a large number of files in the develop module (or culling and/or keywording in loupe view), it would be nice if you can see how far you are in the process by seeing and index number or a "#x of y".
You can guestimate from the length and position of the scroll bar, but it would be nice to be able to tell how many you have left (without swithing to grid view to get an idea)

You could also guesstimate from the filmstrip.

I'd prefer to know the X of Y.

It shouldn't be too difficult to implement this request, I'm sure.

I forgot to say "filmstrip", but that's what I meant:
You can guestimate from the length and position of the scroll bar in the filmstrip

Why guess, when I could get an exact number? The scroll bar in the filmstrip makes guesstimating difficult when I’m working with over 1000 images.

Exactly.  With large amounts of images, the position of the scroll bar is meaningless.  Might as well toss a coin!
