Hi there!

Once in a while my images are not displayed correctly in PS CS6 depending on zoom:





It's more often with large files (Raws) either transfered from LR or opened through CR.

Win 7 64bit, 6GB RAM, Quad quore, NVidia GT330M driver up-to-date

Help!

It's a video driver glitch: you can try disabling openGL, or update the driver.

Hi Chris!

Thanks for your quick reply. As I wrote driver is up-to-date.

Will try with disabled openGL.

As I understand PS is using openGL, wouldn't disabling have an impact on overall (video) performance in PS? Is instruction available for recommended (nVidia) GPU driver settings for use with PS and LR?

Regards

Yes, disabling the GPU will reduce drawing performance and disable some features -- but that's your only choice until you get a driver that works correctly.

If you believe you have the latest driver from NVidia's website and updated it correctly - then you need to contact NVidia and give them details so they can fix the bug.

Hi Chris,

I will disable openGL and see if there's an impact and anyway report the bug to NVidia. Thanks for your help!

Update: Driver updated but problem still not solved!

I fiddled around in the PS settings and found out that the problem only occurs when using Advanced Settings > Mode Advanced. Other two = no problem...

So If I have to stick with Mode Normal what kinf of lack of performance can I Expect?

By the way: No answer from Nvidia. And: My video card is on the list of supported devices for CS6 (Found here: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/979969)

Several other people have seen this with recent NVidia drivers, but it only seems to affect some models. Unfortunately we don't have more details at this time.

I add myself to the list, with the same problem... (despite the time gap...)
Nvidia Geforce 7300GT in a Mac Pro 1.1
(And also on my macbook Pro, with an AMD Radeon HD 6750M)
Two machines, two graphic cards from two manufacturers, I'm thinking it's not a driver problem...

We've only seen this problem caused by bugs in video card drivers.
But the 7300GT was a bad card - the GPU itself had problems, and the drivers were horrendous.

And we haven't seen many such problems on MacOS -- it's almost entirely on Windows when users have out of date drivers.
