Photoshop Elements :: UI Font Too Small On High-resolution Display

Nov 13, 2013

I have recently purchased a Dell XPS15 laptop with a QHD+ (3200x1800) display. The PC is running Windows 8.1. I have also purchased Photoshop Elements 12 to run on it.
With the display at the native resolution, it is necessary to have the "Change the size of all items" option in the display settings of Windows 8.1 set to "Larger", in order for the native Windows fonts and UI elements to be at a reasonable size. The laptop came with this option enabled by default.
However, disappointingly the UI font size in Photoshop Elements is way too small when the display is at the native resolution. The application is basically unusable.
I have tried setting the "Use system font" option in the General preferences, but this doesn't seem to work.
The only way I can get the Photoshop Elements UI font to a reasonable size, is by dropping the screen resolution (to say 1920x1080).
This seems like a terrible waste of a beautiful screen, particularly when my main reason for using the PC is for editing photos, and my photo management and editing software is preventing me exploiting the full resolution of the display.

Photoshop Elements :: Why Is High Resolution Image Pixelating When Dragged Onto Smaller Canvas

Aug 3, 2013

I have an image (1200mm x 1200mm) very sharp and crisp. (A photo that i have worked on and has lots of detail) I drag this image onto a canvas size of 150mm x150mm - and the image loses all of its sharpness. It is not apparent until i zoom in to see the detail. (PSE10) I'm sure that there is a box somewhere to tick..........but i cannot find it.
when i drag it over, it is still the large size, so i grab the grips/handles and shrink to fit, then it pixelates?

Photoshop Elements :: 10 - Font And Icons Are Too Small In Workspace

May 19, 2013

I've used photoshop elements 10 ad it's worked fine on my other computers. I just purchased a new computer, same size monitor and I can barely read the font or text on it. I have 20/20 vision but the workspace is so small on this computer. I've tried changing the resolution on my screens and it's not changing photoshops screen at all. I'm not sure why it is a great size on my past computers and this updated computer it's not showing properly ? I can not use the program any longer with the changed sizing.

Photoshop :: From Low To High Resolution

Nov 26, 2007

I created a graphic to use on the web (72 dpi), client called and now they want to print it postcard size so they can mail it out. The Original image is 480 x 611.

Most of it is just text and a few rectangle marquee boxes to give color. There are three pictures used. What's the quickest way to replicate this? can I just create a new document at 300dpi and drag all my layers(except the pictures) into it from the low res one or do I have to recreate everything?

Photoshop :: High Resolution Image In CS5

Dec 5, 2012

This may seem a simple issue , but i want to make a picture that is 140mm by 170mm using an existing hi res image , i've put the sizes into a new document in ps.
I then dragged the high res photo i need into Photoshop, the photo is 6144pxl by 4113pxl so is very large, but when i drag it to PS it goes really small about a quarter of the size of the new document template, i then drag the image to to my new correct sized document template but i have to enlarge it , which in turn makes it go blurred.

Photoshop :: High Resolution PDF Gets Striped

Mar 17, 2005

Well, now to my Q. My wife works in a print shop and she has been working with PS for a few months. And now she stumbled upon a problem. As the heroic husband I am I promised to help her out. Now, gathering the forces of good I hope for a happy end...(yes I just saw the Incredibles)

She creates a gradient from 0% black to 100% black. The area is an A4 (210x297 mm). When she save this image as a high-resolution PDF the gradient gets striped. Both when viewed and when sent to the rip. Are there any secrets yet to be revealed about the PDF export?

Photoshop :: CS4 With A High Resolution Screen

Jan 10, 2009

I am running CS4 on an 8 processor, 3 GHz machine with an nvidia fx3700 and a screen that offers 2600 x 1900 resolution. With all this power, the package is much slower than CS3 on a lap top. One can actually see the action of one's paintbrush trailing centimetres behind the cursor.

Well, we can perhaps live with this, with the leaping menu bar and the many other oddities until Adobe fix the thing. However, what isa truly hard to accept is that it is impossible to resize the tool icons, symbols on the tool bars, silly menu stud-type things of floating menu items so as to allow work at high resolution. Drop down menus follow what we have told Windows to apply, and are thus legible. Anything in the application GUI is, however, invisibly small at 2600 x 1900, Even MS Office 2000 - ten years old - allows you to resize the icons and tools, for heavens sake, but it appears that a modern package that is aimed explicitly at people who work with images cannot do so. It all seems deeply retrograde, an instance where 'new' equals 'worse'.

Perhaps I have missed something: so does anyone know how to resize the various menus and tools so that they can be read without a magnifying glass?

Photoshop :: Forum Oddity, W.r.t High Resolution...

Jan 11, 2009

I started a thread on Windows/ Photoshop entitled "CS4 with a high resolution screen". People have replied to this, according to e-mail direct response. However, it is not on the list of forums, and neither does it appear on 'search'.

To repeat: we have a high resolution HP LP 3065 screen, which supports up to 2560 x 1600 pixels. At this resolution, images are still less than print size, but CS4 is essentially unusable because the menu text and other icons do not scale. Does anyone know if it is possible to manage this silly interface to allow the user to see what they are doing? Is there even a visual disability option? Even MS Office 2000 - ten years old - allows "large icons".

Photoshop :: Best Settings For Saving High Image Quality / Small File Size (under 1 MB) PDF?

Aug 18, 2013

I've created a resume in Photoshop CS5 for OS X - I know, I should've used InDesign but I'm more comfortable working in Photoshop.
The PSD is currently 2550x3300 px (8.5x11 in) at 300 dpi. I'd like to save the resume as a PDF flie so I can submit it online. I have no intentions of printing this particular document. Most websites will only accept a file size of under 1MB. What are the ideal settings for saving a PDF in the smallest file size without sacrificing on image quality? I should also note that I do not have Acrobat Pro.

Photoshop :: CS5 - How To Sharpen Picture To Print In High Resolution

Mar 15, 2012

I'm trying to print the presidential medal of freedom in high-res but all the samples I found on Google image search and on wiki are low-res. Since I need it for print, I increased it to 300dpi and it looks really jagged and blurred. I tried to search for a vector version, but couldn't find it. This is how it looks: 

I tried all the filters as well, but couldn't find one that suits me (cutout is the closest, but it still looks horrible). I'm using Photoshop CS5.
Except finding an original high-res (which is impossible right now), in which other creative way can I fix it?

Photoshop :: Importing High Resolution Photos From Word

When I copy them from Word and open a new file in PS4, the photo comes in at full resolution. If I do so in CS5.1, it's like a screen shot--72 dpi. Is there a way to have it be high res in CS5.1?

Photoshop :: Web-safe Format For High Resolution Images?

Oct 19, 2012

I'm having a high resolution image (above 100 dpi) changing it's color settings after submitted to the web.

The image looks fine on the Desktop - and if saved using "Save for web..." dialogue the colors remains as deserved on the web as well.

Is there a way to save an image so the color preferences aren't distorted after publishing to the web, but without reducing to 72 dpi?
I use Photoshop CS4 and I shoot and edit my pictures in Adobe RGB 1998.

P.S. If I open Adobe RGB psd file and assign color profile to sRGB it changes to how my non-web-safe images look when uploaded to the web.
