I'd like to see flash information as an option of the information I can see in the Library View Options info overlay. Yes, I know I can find it in meta data, but that's work. I'd love to be able to tick a box that lets me see if the flash went off, what mode the flash was in and if the flash EV was adjusted.

FWIW, I liked it a whole lot better when I could just go to the Adobe bugs/features request page and post a very specific suggestion about what feature would make Photoshop or Lightroom even better for me and be done in a minute. Having to come to this site and create a photoshop URL and jump through other hoops is dampening my enthusiasm and might make me less likely to post constructive suggestions to improve the products in the future. Why do people have to over-complicate things?

+1 vote for ability to see more info in an instant...

Personally, I can't stand seeing stuff overlaid on my image, so I always turn it on (twice) then off.

I'd prefer a single on/off with much more info in it. And, always show crop dimensions in real time somewhere (not on the image) when cropping - that's the other time I turn the info on temporarily - for crop dimensions while cropping.

PS - You (they) can't please everyone. Some people see the new way for feedback as a net improvement...

The hoops are one-time though, right? I mean, I stay logged in, so I can post an Idea or Problem in an instant with no impediment (other than people getting tired of me & my posts...)

Yes, I'm new to flash photography and I know that the flash data is recorded in the camera, so why not allow the user to see the flash data so that he/she can learn and compare information from one shot to the next? This would aid learning.

It's simply them linking it to the flash fired metadata and poof then it's an option. Shouldn't be a terribly difficult feature to implement. I quite like the ability to choose two seperate options for info overlays.
