Photoshop: Undersized image previews with some 3rd party plugins on Retina displays

OS X 10.10, CC-2014.2.1, plugins Focus Magic and iCorrect EditLab Pro:

Screen display of the image within the plugin is about 20% of the size it should be. These plugins otherwise work as expected. The iCorrect image is distorted as well as undersized.

This was not a problem with CS6.

Hi Myron,

I notice your are running on Yosemite. Are you running CS6 on Yosemite as well and not seeing the problem?

In any case, it would be best to contact the 3rd party developers for those products to make sure you're using compatible versions for CC 2014 and Yosemite.

iCorrect EditLab Pro: http://www.pictocolor.com/support.htm

They can contact us if they need help with changed needed with their plug-ins.

The latest version of Focus Magic (4.02) solved the problem, which was restricted to Retina displays.

Cool. I assume iCorrect also needs some sort of update.

Yes, all third party plugins need updates to draw correctly (scaled) on Retina displays. Otherwise they are going to draw at half the expected size.
