Recently my exposure compensation info set up to display in loup view began displaying as a fraction instead of -1, +2 etc. What do I need to do to change it back?

Thanks!

The EV value is within a gnats eyelash of -1/2. Double the numerator differs from the denominator by 1 in the last place.

My guess is that LR's routine that converts floating point values to fractions is messing up a little. Do all your fractional EV values show up looking that funny? What camera are you using?

Hal,

I just revisited the problem and noticed something I had not noticed before. To whit the screwy EV fractionalized numbers only appeared on images that I had processed with Topaz Denoise and Gigapixel. Apparently something happens within those apps that cause this to occur.

Thanks!

I would guess a bug is in the Topaz apps that changes the EV value in the file header.
