Photoshop: Introducing scale the UI 200% for high-density displays for Windows

The Photoshop team welcomes your feedback on this experimental feature. Let us know what you think!

Photoshop user interface controls may appear small and hard-to-read on high-density displays. Also, on touch-enabled screens, you may have trouble clicking the smaller controls. 200% scaling solves this issue by doubling the size of the user interface.

Since the user interface elements increase in size by 200%, depending on the size and resolution of your display, you may need to adjust the layout of existing workspaces. For example, on a 1080 px screen at 200%, the Tools panel extends off the bottom of the screen. You can change to double-column orientation in order to fit the panel on the screen.

Note: This feature is only for Windows users. HiDPI on Mac has been available for high-density Retina displays since Photoshop CS6.

Caveats

You may encounter some cosmetic issues while using this feature. While many Photoshop dialogs have been reworked so that they fit on the screen at 1080 px, viewing some dialogs (such as Smart Sharpen) completely may require you to collapse sections.

Disable 200% UI scaling

If you need to return to the default 100% scaling, do the following:

1. Select Preferences > Experimental Features.
2. Deselect Scale UI 200% For High-Density Displays (Windows Only).
3. Restart Photoshop.

    Hi i love the 200% and it ́s in the right way. but i have an hp 13" 2560x1440 resolution and it seems that ~150% would be the sweetspot. Hope it will be som option for that later on. keep up the good work.
    • I totally agree. The big targets are intoxicating! But I also have two 2560 x 1440 monitors, at 27 inches. 150% would be right on the money.

      Adobe did the right thing, giving us a choice. The text and targets at 100% scaling were microscopic light gray on a darker gray background. Brutal. Lord only knows what it looked like on a 4k monitor.

      So, ideally, I think it would be:
      100% scaling for most people (1080p or less)
      150% for 2560 x 1440 or 2560 x 1600 monitors
      200% scaling for 4k monitors.

      Kudos, though, for the 200% feature. I'm so happy.
    • Yes, 150% would be better for 27" 2560x1440. Some work areas/dialog boxes exceed screen size and cannot be re-sized. 'Save for Web' is one of them. Would like Bridge to allow larger fonts as well.

    From my research Adobe Photoshop has been having trouble with UI sizing for over 3 yrs.( just Google "Windows HiDPI monitors") about 9 screens and growing on Adobe's site.

    The new Experimental Features on PS is a good first step however... only if you own a 4K monitor ! ??

    The above threads already covered why 200% does not work for main stream monitors ... ok, almost work on some monitor resolutions. I am using multiple 1920 x1200 displays, no work space left after setting EF to 200%.

    - 2560x1600 better at 150% 100 or 200 what happen to 150 125... ?
    - 4K it works ... only small install base maybe 2% ??

    After loading PS 2014, I noticed that the font size for the file menu - pull down was set to small (same size as title bar ??). ( hard to see on 1920x1080 monitor)
    - Windows 8.1
    - PS - UI setting set to large - prefs
    - Windows - setting display to 125% text

    Note: So new feature not mentioned in Adobe PS 2014 - Windows 7/8.1 setting under display (125%) no longer modifies PS font size for pull down menus ??
    - PS CC works on Windows 7/8.1
    - CS6 PS works on Windows 7/8.1

    Ok guys - Product Group, Product Marketing, System test and managers of those groups. What happened to testing products before they release ?

    If you are going to add features that break other functionality do not do it or a least put it the release notes... like I said earlier 98% of your base are not using 4K monitors ???

    In closing PS is a great tool, I not sure why it takes so long ( 3yrs of reported issues) to rewrite code, when some of the other Adobe Suite products seem to follow windows display sizing or you have added a UI Interface feature. Microsoft is not the main problem, you have other solutions.

    Adobe is a great company and produces excellent products, so groups manager please take some time to focus your teams to fix these UI sizing issues and provided a more detailed information source for user reference.

    • Chris,

      Thanks for the followup, still a bit of a grey area. This still does not explain why PS 2014 does not except Windows display text size changes and PS CC does.

      Please review attached link - http://gsfn.us/t/4jrwg then follow the threads. I have some other questions and examples under the right topic.

      Thanks

      Because you're using an API that applies to applications that don't scale, and Photoshop CC 2014 does scale if the preference is enabled.

  • Hi, is this feature going to be retro-fitted to older versions? I have Photoshop CS5 and Dreamweaver CS6 and am not really over the moon about potentially having to upgrade in order to make these programs usable again.... thx
    • view 1 more comment
    • Hi, thx. Interesting that Adobe consider CS6 to be obsolete when it's still on sale and I only paid for an upgrade to it this time last year. At what point did CS6 become obsolete? It's also a shame that £700 of software, whilst fully functional in all other respects, can become obsolete due to an increase in screen resolution. Quite a statement from a company that is supposedly a leader in image software ;)
    • Interestingly enough, when I asked about an upgrade from Photoshop CS5 to CS6 about 4 months ago, there was no mention of it being obsolete at that time either and Adobe seemed quite prepared to take my money... Seems a little underhand

  • Quote from David Wadhwani Apr 2013 - "For those who don't like the subscriptions, the Creative Suite 6 software released last year "is a reasonable alternative," he said. "We'll continue to sell it and continue to maintain it. Over time we hope to win these customers over through innovation and strong execution."

    Quite an about turn since then to now consider CS6 obsolete and "not continue to maintain it"...

  • I've heard about the problems that Photoshop CS6 has with high-retina displays on Windows 8. Will a native screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 work ok with Photoshop & Illustrator CS6 work ok with this? Or will this give me the same squinting problem everyone talks about? Please don't tell me to upgrade to CC, my business has not been authorized to do this, but they have given me permission to get a new laptop to replace the broken one I have that has been running CS6.

    The "Experimental" option was pointed out to me by an Adobe techie after many hours of struggle w my HD screen and invisible UI. Went to Prefs, clicked Experimental, ta-da the grave flaw in Photoshop was solved.

    But then soon after, in the middle of a huge project of course, the UI shrank back to unreadable and the Experimental choice disappeared, never to return despite reboots, etc. As post-ers above mentioned, this is contemptuous behaviour on Adobe's part, but I have become accustomed to it.

  • I’m fustrated
    200% is too large on a 1920x1050 display, there is simply too little workspace left with single column. Switching to double column in order to see all the options means no workspace available. 150% would be better but I also noticed that when I hover over collapsed items like "history" the text did not appear to have scaled or if it did the text was still way too small even with Edit > Preferences > Interface being set to large. When not docked I'm using a Sony Vaio Duo 11 with a 1920x1050 11" screen or Surface 2 Pro with the same screen resolution.

    This has been an issue with Adobe Photoshop for over 10 years back when I had a Toshiba M200 12" with 1440x1050 resolution and others had Apple Cinema monitors who were also complaining of text size. When will Adobe have UI scaling independent of OS resolution?

    200%UI would work fine - but since i need the whole adobe workflow from bridge over camera raw to PS - as a photographer and digital artist it is only a piece of the whole cake and if the whole thing is not working together on 200% UI - it doesn't work at all for me.

    Looking forward for the UI-scaling at least in bridge and camera raw!

    Thank u for your work and porgress anyway.

    regards, Mario

    Larger Icons.


    Hi, I have a physical disability and I've been using Photoshop for about 4 years now. I just got a Windows Surface Pro last year, I use Photoshop on it with the touch pen. It's really frustrating when I try to click something in the menu bar up the top (file, edit, image, layer eg) and the tool bar, I always click the wrong tool I wanted because the icons are too small. It would really helpful if there was a option where you could make the menu and tool bar larger.

    I ran across this option by accident. I am using a Dell Precision M6400 laptop with 17-in. screen and a 1920 x 1200 recommended (highest) resolution. I can work with the smallish icons but when I saw the UI 200% option I thought I might like that. But no: too large, with the icons and tool bars taking up too much of the screen. Maybe 150% or several options, e.g., 125%, 150%, 175% and 200%. Also, when I went to Preferences to change back to 100%, the window went way beyond the screen and I could see no way to scroll. See attached screen cap. That said, the view was not so enlarged that I could not change back to 100% (which I did). There are four more screen-resolution options for my computer, each lower selection making the icons usefully larger. However, I lose my sharp images, so this approach does to appeal to me.

  • Not really sure how I feel about this because my workflow involve Bridge and RAW and I still have little menus in those! Which sucks! I do like the larger menus and touchscreen capability! It screws with all my other applications on the laptop. I feel like this is a small band aid for a large gash to be quite honest! Hope you all get it all integrated soon!

  • This 200% scaling option is a pretty crude workaround, but it works at least. Sort of. I just dropped $2000 on a new work machine with a HiDPI display, and expected Photoshop to work on it (despite what I've read about Windows 8.1's kludgy handling of scaling.) I mean, Adobe made their name in graphics. It's not like they couldn't see this coming.

    Anyway, the 200% scaling option has Photoshop usable on my main screen but utterly unusable on my secondary monitor, which is much larger but of a lower resolution, and as such all the UI elements are childishly gigantic. And I'm sure I'm not the only person out there with a similar setup. Is there any way to apply the 200% scaling to only one monitor?

    If Adobe doesn't get this sorted, and soon, I'm going to drop using their product suite entirely and switch over to open source. This is an unacceptable state of affairs.

    200% is too much even at 3840 x 2160, i.e. full 4K. I suggest that options of 125%, 150% 175% and 200% be available for the user to select...

  • wow, that's great... I typed my comments here before I signed in. Upon clicking the "reply" button, my reply was held while I was given the opportunity to sign in. But when I signed in, since it had been a long time, the site sent a confirmation code to my email address. I went and got that, which only took a few seconds, came back and entered the code. It then successfully logged me in but did not submit my comments, and it lost my text entry. Also my comments were no longer in my system clipboard because I used it to cut and paste the confirmation code. Something in that system of letting the user log in during a suspended reply process is broken and needs some loving attention.

    What I was going to say is that I fully agree with Thomas Carter above (from 9 days ago) -- 175% would be just great on my 3840x2160 Dell Ultrasharp UP2414Q display. 200% is pretty close though, and I'll take it for now.

    It would also be a good idea to go ahead and move the 200% scale option to the Interfaces preference. No one is looking for it under Experimental until after they tear their hair out for an hour or more of filtering through forums full of UI complaints.

    Thank you, Chris and other Photoshop engineers, for listening.

  • This is still ABSURD. Is everyone missing the elephant in the room here? Adobe has completely IGNORED software standards.

    Every program "should be" inheriting my system settings. That means when Surface is set to 175% font sizes and my desktop is set to 200% that Adobe programs should inherit this.

    Simple as that. This should not be an "experimental" feature.

    This has been on the Adobe feature request for 5 years, FIX THE FONT SIZES. The menus in every program and especially the absurd 7pt spell check font in inDesign.

    How does this topic make me feel? Like a fool who has been "investing" in Adobe since Flash was owned by Macromedia...

    I bought the high end surface pro 3 and loved the high res display so that I could have a decent workspace. The issue is that 100% is too small but 200% is too big. There should be variants of scale factor to allow for people with different screens, sizes, resolutions, etc. to get the most out of this feature.

  • I’m very disappointed but hopeful
    Yay to experimental fixes that are sorely sorely needed and uh oh to talks about it being available (only at this moment hopefully and not in perpetuity) for subscription members.

    Though I understand that on some levels, this issue is partially dependant on Microsoft, I am still astounded that with retina display/high density displays being all the rage that this issue still hasn't been resolved for the Windows/PC userbase and yet has been resolved for the Mac userbase.

    I very recently finally jumped ship to a new machine - Surface Pro 3 with a 2160 x 1440 default display - with one of the major reasons being for me to make better use of my CS6 Master Collection of products which I paid good money for and am not giving up anytime soon - and was astonished and very disappointed to discover that not only does Adobe's UI scale horribly (in other words, it doesn't and changing my resolution does diddly squat), but that the experimental features being pushed out to help resolve this issue are currently only available to current subscription customers.

    I am really hoping that when this issue gets fixed-fixed, this 'fix' will get pushed out to CS 6 customers as well as part of Adobe's promise to continue to support (re: 'bug fixes' and 'compatibility support') CS6 and will NOT consider fixing something so important as UI appearance re: scaling as a 'new feature'.

    When CS6 suites were released, the Creative Cloud was released a year later and I'm sorry, but I like my 'pay all at once and keep for however long' suites.

    Adobe gave me the option to do it and I did it because that's what suits me best and I - and others like me - ought not be punished because we chose to pay for our products and our rights to use it all upfront.

    If Adobe wants to make or considers the CS6 suites obsolete and something so vital as the UI scaling issue to be a 'new feature' and available only to their subscription customers, they ought to look at some basic math, first, and see how pricing and subscription numbers translate between the CS6 boxed suites and the cloud suites.

    Some math: Master Collection at $2000 (nice round number with some discounts to account for age of product, but actually costs more) = 40 months' worth of the Creative Cloud subscription at $50 a month.

    40 months = 3 years and 4 months.

    CS6 was complete and the suites available as of May of 2012.

    I did not purchase my suite right away as I waited a bit, but for someone who did, that means that upfront, 40 months' worth of Creative Cloud (the $50 a month version) was purchased.

    That's the equivalent of Creative Cloud from May 2012 (not yet in existence) to May 2015 PLUS 4 more months which puts it out to September of 2015.

    Last I checked, it's still 2014 and September of 2015 is still over a year and a half away.

    Even if Adobe wants to tell me/us that CS6 is outdated and is an 'old' product, that doesn't and will not change the fact that we were given the option to and therefore chose to pay for our product - ALL of it - upfront by giving Adobe a huge chunk of change all in one go as opposed to on a monthly basis.

    Speaking from strictly looking at numbers, I (and others like me who bought CS6) have monetarily supported Adobe more than any other single user using Creative Cloud (closest equivalent to the Master/full suites) has as the money I've dropped is more than what the earliest Creative Cloud member has paid for their subscription since subscriptions were first released.

    If Adobe refuses to push such a fix - seriously, people, this is a FIX and NOT a FEATURE - to CS6, then Adobe is telling me/us that that money I dropped upfront - worth MULTIPLE YEARS of Creative Cloud which was offered right after and has yet to 'expire' as demonstrated by the simple math - isn't good enough and I don't think that that's a good message to send.

    That said, I'm hoping for the best and patiently waiting for such a fix to make it to all of my products that need it in my CS6 Collection.

  • 1. The Surface Pro 1, 2, and 3s do not ship with 200% scaling. 175% scaling max, I don't know where you got the 200% is the most common number from. None of the other hidpi Windows laptops I've seen ship with 200% scaling.

    2. Illustrator scales properly on my Surface Pro 2, if you're using the same widget toolkit for both programs, why can't you just port that over?

    I know you guys have been blaming Microsoft's APIs for this situation, but as a developer who's been supporting hidpi on Windows, this stuff isn't hard. You can get Illustrator working properly, but why not Photoshop?

    Bingo! After struggling with getting a readable font size on my new 4K Samsung U28D590 monitor, this fix did the trick! Strangely, LR had no such scaling issues - everything looked fine out of the gate - only on PS CC2014 did I have this issue.
