  • Viewing sharpened image looks wrong on my NEC but

    Hi all,

    I use Photoshop CC. Today I came across this image on my NEC where I sharpened and added a bit clarity image looks just to find that image looks very wrong in photoshop but OK in ACR. Then I uploaded same image with same settings on my MAc Pro Retina however image looked perfectly fine in both ACR and photoshop. Then I cranked up clarity to a max and sharpening in ACR to a max too 115 1.0 25 0 image remained fine viewing on both ACR and photoshop on Mac.
    Here is upload:http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...psqqtqidhi.jpg

    I am using NEC Multisync PA241W w. Calibrated a week ago.
    Thanks

    Still hope someone will come forward and give me advice..bump
    Just to mention a couple of days ago I have connected my MAcbook Pro 2014 to the NEC display and had no problem whatsoever. Same image at same zoom level same settings...I begin to suspect it could be graphic card.

      What do you mean "very wrong"? And is it just this one image that is affected? And under Performance prefs do you have Graphics Processor enabled? Try toggling that last one, restarting, and see if there's a difference.

        Doug,

        Have you looked at my link? There is image neck by neck. Do you see any difference? Most, would say all images affected. It started not long ago maybe few months.
        Graphic perfomance is on here is my screenshot: http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...pspxjdwqdi.jpg

          The NEC image seems noisier. What puzzles me, though, is that you can capture the difference with a screencap (unless you pointed a camera at the screen).

            Yes it's noisier.If I gently zoom in and out I can see as if detail is failed to be rendered as if delaying to render properly. Sometimes it looks like noise especially when zoomed out smaller than "fit to screen" size and if zoomed a bit more it looks like tiny blocky clusters.

            If you think graphic card is doing rendering for CC and CC translating it . While the screenshot is done not via CC . I don't know maybe GC is not coping anymore, maybe CC is not working properly.

              My first impulse is that it has nothing to do with the monitor, since you can screencap the difference (which bypasses the monitor). And it is the same computer and the same Photoshop, so that only leaves the graphics card handling the two monitors differently for some reason.

                There is only one monitor NEC. Normally PC is connected to it . Same PC has "faulty" card. I also have Macbook Pro 15" which I connected to monitor via Displayport cable and image rendering was perfectly fine. Macbook Pro alone, also does fault free rendering on the same image, which leaves me to suspect GC on my PC.
                At the first I was suspecting monitor but after experimenting it was deducted from the list.

                  Ah, ok, things a little clearer now. So you've taken the funny-looking file from one computer to the other and it looks fine? And you've taken a fine-looking file on the Mac and seen it turn "wrong" on the PC?

                    )..Let me try again:
                    "Ah, ok, things a little clearer now. So you've taken the funny-looking file from one computer to the other and it looks fine?" Funny file only looks wrong when viewed on NEC via my PC.( mind you I looked at RAW file)
                    Same RAW file exactly same settings viewed on MacBook Pro looks fine.
                    Same RAW file exactly same settings viewed on NEC connected to MAcBook Pro looks fine.
                    Out of three variables image looks wrong when my PC is used. We are getting there Hope it makes sense.

                      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?

                        "Ok, image looks fine on Mac, with both built in 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."
                        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:

                          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.

                            I will try to reset photoshop tomorrow and see if it helps.

                              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

                                by garfield
                                I would like to ask a question. How do I make this image bigger but at the same time not lose the quality? I just found this at google and its background is good for the mastermind game that we plan to make, because if I resize it, it just blurs. Also how do i change the background here? I'm hoping...

                                Hello! I always get great help, so thought I would ask for more? I have an image that I am trying to use that is small and when I make it big it becomes blurry. I have pixelmator and not photoshop I tried sharpening it and changing the colors. Then smearing it I guess but its still very blurry! Any...

                                by DannyRaphael
                                I happend to run across this link today (12/2011), but apparently Image Processor Pro ver 2 (for Photoshop CS5) has been available since 5/2011. Who knew?

                                A few people have reported problems with the Image Processor script. Perhaps some of those bugs were fixed in this upgrade.

                                Basically, my favourite teacher left on Friday,&we all got photos taken with him. I got one on my phone, and it definately saved, as I was looking at it on the way home.

                                When I got home I moved the image to a different folder (ON MY PHONE) ready to hook up to my
