    With a rMBP how can you view photos with photo pixels mapped 1:1 to screen pixels ?

    If I'm not mistaken, photos are already rendered at 1:1 pixels in Apple's apps and retina-optimized apps.

    Thanks, looks like iPhoto does. With Safari and Preview have not found a way.

    Just an update ...
    As mentioned only iPhoto seems to view images 1:1 of the default mac apps,
    and many including me do not want to use iPhoto
    due to it duplicating everything in it's library.

    Found a 3rd party app that works well for browsing images on a retina laptop, and has a 1:1 option..
    Arcsoft Photo+ in the App store, not free but pretty close.

    Far from here
    In Preview it should be : View / Actual size.
