Re: Viewing sharpened image looks wrong on my NEC

Ok, image looks fine on Mac, with both builtin screen and NEC screen.
Same image looks wrong on PC, but only NEC screen is available for testing, but it is the same NEC screen that has previously shown the image looking fine.
Screencap on PC looks noisy, screencap on Mac looks smooth.

Have you tried viewing files in non-PS programs on both?

I had a similar problem many years ago and it turned out to be the way PS handled screen display on PCs. That particular issue has gone away due to tech advances, but I'm wondering if something similar isn't at play. Have you tried disabling the graphics processor pref on the PC?

Correct. Can I just add that screencap on NEC looks only noisy if PC used.
I have tired C1 Pro and no problem though I had to save image as TIFF. Funny enough Adobe bridge, Adobe Camera RAW has no signs of fault too. it's getting tricky .Have a look here:

Re: Viewing sharpened image looks wrong on my NEC

You've definitely narrowed it down to the Windows version of Photoshop, so I suspect the advanced graphics prefs in the Windows version are mismatched to your graphics card.

Let's hope some other voices chime in, as that's about the last of my ideas.

Re: Viewing sharpened image looks wrong on my NEC

The issue may be caused by either the GPU settings relating to Advanced settings particularly if you have an unsupported card. I have an issue on occasion with a totally black screen which can be cured by switching advanced off (this on cs6)
Or more likely
I think that it could also be caused by cache level settings too low, which may be affecting the rendering. So a suggestion would be to check the effect of increasing levels by a good magin. Hope that this may be of some help

Hi Tony,

I have looked into adobe troubleshooting page and they still support my Asus Radeon HD 5700. I haven't done CC reset yet but will do later to see if it helps and prior to that I follow your advice to tweak GPU settings
Speak later !

Re: Viewing sharpened image looks wrong on my NEC

Just so that we are clear what I meant was to adjust cache levels by going to preferences and in the History and Cache section change Cache to max (think that this may be 8). Once set close PS then restart

Re: Viewing sharpened image looks wrong on my NEC

@Tony

Sorted
Cache levels were at 1. I cranked it up to 4 and voilà. I was suspecting once this is some kind of delay in refreshing. Cache must be responsible for it. What Cache tile size do you have? I have 1024
So much thanks Tony.

Good to hear you are back to normal viewing. CS6 cache tile size set to 1024.
