Windows High Density Monitor Support
With this release, Photoshop on Windows 10 Creator’s Edition now offers a full range of choices for UI scale factors from 100% through 400%, in 25% increments. This means that the Photoshop user interface will look crisp, beautiful, and the right size no matter the density of your monitor. Photoshop will now automatically adjust itself based on your Windows settings, making it simple to set up.
We collaborated closely with Microsoft to enable this important functionality so you can wring maximum value out of every tiny pixel on our high-end, high-density screens. This is one of the top requests from Photoshop customers on Windows devices.
In addition, we worked very closely with Microsoft to provide per-monitor scaling across monitors with different scale factors. This means that a high resolution (HiDPI) laptop now works seamlessly alongside a lower resolution desktop monitor (or vice versa). One monitor can have a scale factor of 175% and another a scale factor of 400%. This allows Windows users to choose either the highest-end 13-inch laptops with 4k screens, the more affordable 1080p models, or tap into the new 8k desktop monitors, each with an uncompromised experience within Photoshop. It is wonderful to work with Microsoft and its hardware partners to make that long desired WYSIWYG dream can come true.
“The desire to support and create beautiful experiences is something the teams at Adobe and Microsoft have in common. It’s one of the reasons we’ve been working together closely to ensure Photoshop scales perfectly on any Windows 10 device, from the 12.3-inch Surface Pro all the way to the 28-inch Surface Studio. Details matter, both in the creation of products and the creation of art, and we’re excited to continue our partnership to deliver visually exquisite experiences for all our shared customers.” – Panos Panay, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Devices
While we focus on the pixels, the Photoshop team also was hard at work and today we deliver even more exciting and useful new features for both Mac and Win customers….
