This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic: Expand and improve the Loupe Info Display

Tired of cycling through the information hovering over my photo.

  1. it needs to be off the photo. It can get in the way. 
  2. Display the information in a single string above the image. 
Here's what I want:

Line 1: [flag] color( [filename] [date time] [res] [megapixels] )
Line 2: [camera info] 
Where filename is in a larger font as current. Use "I" shortcut to cycle between
 {OFF, line 1 only, line 2 only, show both lines}

If there's a flag, show it ahead of the first line of information. (line 1, line 2, line 1 if 1&2 visible)

If there's a color label, color the first line of information with that color. 

LET ME LOCK THE FILE. Show the lock ahead of flags.

If you have cycled through the Info displayed at the top right of the image then you know you can turn that info off as one of the options. You press the i key until that text is not shown.

Again, I want the photo info permanently OFF the photo, not overlaid. I also want the information to be displayed all at once, not cycled through one at a time. I also want extended information to include more camera info and more photo info. 


[flag] DSC_1714.NEF 10000 x 5000  50 MP  5/15/20 10:10:10 AM <- colorize this text if color label
1/200 sec at F/8.0 ISO 3200  38mm (24-70mm F/2.8) Nikon D850

This info can be displayed as one single line above the photograph.
