The Digilib Editor View shows the image in the size and resolution of your screen. When the Editor is open, you will also see additional Digilib Toolbar buttons in the Toolbar on top of the window.

With the Toolbar buttons you can zoom in to inspect the image up to the highest resolution offered by the server or rotate or mirror the image or change its brightness or contrast.
