Photoshop: Curve adjustment graph dialog size is tiny. Please make it bigger.

The Curve Adjustment properties dialog can be scaled somewhat, but it is still tiny on larger screens running a higher resolution. In Gimp, PhotoLine, and other image editors the curves graph can be scaled up to the actual screen size, if needed.

Please make the curves graph more responsive in regards to dialog scaling. The graph is so small, making it harder than it needs to be to work with, and very difficult for precise adjustments.

I strongly support this suggestion.  The curves graph is so small, it's difficult to adjust accurately.  At least make it as big as it is in ACR.

You do know that you can resize the one in PS? At its largest size, it's the same size as the one in ACR...

The small size of the curve adjustment tool has been an inconvenience to me for quite a while. Even at it's largest setting, it just isn't big enough to use easily on modern displays.

I totally agree with this. The Curve Adjustment tool should be flexible and scaleable.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop: Bigger histogram and curves interface.

As screen pixels got smaller over the last few years, the histogram and curves interface are getting a bit harder to use. Even at maximum size, I struggle to make fine adjustments. Let's have the interface scale to the full size of the palette instead of being limited like they are currently.

Thanks!

Three years since the original post.  It still sucks.  I'm starting to think Adobe just hates us all.

It would be really handy on occasion to be able to expand the curves control to be a large graph, to allow finer control. 

It is already usefully possible to do this for the gradient tool, and the flyout control can be enlarged for the curve tool etc, but the tool itself remains tidy.  It is a shame to have a posh high res screen but not be able to make use of it for accuracy everywhere.

This is my signature.  There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Curves are my #1 tool; I use it for everything from controlling levels to color grading. Would really appreciate being able to scale it up as big as I want it.

Ditto for layer styles contour graphs where I might want to use pretty intricate falloff curves.

I'd like to suggest that the curves histogram in the Properties panel be made responsive.  This way, if you expand the size of the panel, the histogram would grow proportionately, and allow for easier mouse use when fine tuning of points on the curves.
