Photoshop: Pixelated fonts and tool bars with 5K iMac display

Photoshop is not compatible with 5K display for new iMac 27" Retina - fonts and tools are pixelated. When this be corrected or support 5K displays? (as a graphic designer, the whole reason I purchased the new iMac 5K Retina 27" display was to have sharper images - I'm very disappointed in Adobe Photoshop).

Photoshop CS6 or later are compatible with Retina displays. What version of Photoshop are you running?

You're not up to date: http://adobe.ly/PS-Up-To-Date

Make sure you're using 13.0.6

FYI - Photoshop is OK with my Retina MacBook Pro, but now it is pixelated with the iMac 5K Retina - any ideas how to fix? I contacted Adobe and tried to recalibrate, but didn't make a difference at all.

Thanks....much better now! When I reinstalled Photoshop to my new computer, I assumed Adobe would update to the most current version. Thanks for your help :)

I am at the most recent revisions of CC but my characters are very small, even though I have set the UI to "Large". Same display, 5K 27" retina.
