Sorry, I asked for this before.

Since LR5 beta is now out, I want to remind this rather simple but very needed feature.

The idea is, that I can select a certain image size (could be pixel of long side) and the viewer zoomes all images to this size. I could, for example, select "3000" and all images would be displayed as if they have 6 MP, no matter if they have 2MP or 36MP.

This is esspecially important when comparing files to check if the quality to be sufficient for printout. If some images are cropped and some are very large, they would all be scaled to the same size. This way it is possible to check if the pixel quality is good enough for a DinA4 print, for example.

Implementation should be easy - it is basically the "Fill Zoom" with a selectable rectangle insetad of screen size.
