Lightroom: Move image info above the image and show all at once

While in Loupe View or Develop View, I can cycle through the current image information with the keyboard shortcut, i. Cool. The only issue is that it obscures part of the image. I'd find it more useful to have the full information (filename, shutter, aperture, iso, lens, res, date, time) in the bar above the image just below the top pane. Maybe it could just be floating there or it could be a bar just like the toolbar below the image that you can show/hide.

The top area for info is also a great area to show what processing has been applied to the image, too, such as clone/heal, gradient, adjustment brush. How many times have you copied over settings from the previous without realizing that a clone had been done? A quick symbol up top would solve that.

Additionally: Put an [x] next to the icon to remove the adjustments/clones/heals without opening the panels.

Good idea Sean.

Regarding copy/paste/sync of clones and locals, I'd love to see an option for selective copy - existing adjustments are highlighted and distinguished from incoming and user can choose to overwrite all, none, or tick the ones to copy...

Now that I think about it, selective copy could be good for other settings too: e.g. exposure (copy if not already adjusted, as an option, or take one or the other if already adjusted...). See related 'Idea':

I like how ACR will show the camera model in the window's title bar, but I wish LR3 would show this info (outside of the image) all of the time.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Lightroom: move Info Overlay away from image (was display camera model and lens in Develop module).
