It certainly would..

Why not a *tiny* full-resolution preview?!? Thumbs Plus has had this
feature for years - when saving JPEGs, a small part of the full-res image
appears in a scrollable preview window. You can flip from original image
to compressed version instantly to see the effects of different compression
levels, and of course you can also scroll it to view whatever area you
want. A great feature that I don't see very often, but I would like to!
