Finder Gallery view showing images much smaller than available area


This Content is from SuperUser. Question asked by Sam

How do I increase the size of the selected photo in Gallery view within Finder on a Mac?

See attached image as example. The image is only taking up about a third of available space. Both sidebars are small leave plenty of room on the sides. There is also plenty of room at the top and bottom.

I’m not talking about the icons which have a view option for small/medium/large. I’m talking about the selected file’s image in the center.

The attached example has a photo that’s 6048×4024, so it’s certainly not an issue with resolution.

I see the same behavior with jpg and nef files, so it doesn’t seem to be file type either.
