I'm havinf an issue where artefacts appear when Using a second monitor (my iphone through iDisplay) running Photoshop CS6 on a MacBookPro Retina.
Same kind of redraw artefacts happen when dragging an image in and out of the screen, running my Photoshop Cs6 on a 27" iMac.

Have you installed the 13.0.1 update?

And so far when we see artifacts like this, it's due to bugs in the video card driver.

Which OS version are you using?
Which GPU?

The screen cap is from on the iPhone, correct? Sounds like a refresh issue with the iDisplay app/utility.

That's what one would think, but the weird thing is this happens when I hookup a second screen to my Mac as well....

It mostly happens when I set the second screen (iPhone in this case) to fullscreen (F key) if I drag my file onto the iPhone it looks fine.

Sounds like you need to test it without the iPhone connected at all.

We haven't seen this on normal multiple displays (and many of us here use multiple displays).

Most of the time I don't connect my iPhone. It happens on the iMac without any second screen attached to it..

OK, your description does say this happens when using a second display....

Do you have any other utilities that might interfere with desktop display (mirror video drivers, remote connection drivers, etc.)?
What other utiltiies or modifications are on your systems that might make them different from everyone else who isn't seeing this problem?

Yeah. I would still look at iDisplay. Try removing the client software from the iMac.

Guys I resolved the issue, it was my calibrated color profile. After deleting it the artefacts were gone. Thank you fir your time.
