having a slight issue and wondering if anyone can help. i recently started using this monitor but my photoshop windows are really small. i checked online and it said to raise dpi scaling to 200 percent. did that and even tried 300 percent but still the same. photoshop is the only program giving me issues but i see no setting i can change

According to this post if you have win 8.1 or above you should be able to do it in windows settings for icon and fonts etc. https://feedback.pho...otoshop_cc_2014

 

I am somewhat inclined to believe it since while not using 4K I do have HD size as regular on my monitor and my interface on CS5 looks quite normal in size.

that doesnt work, i tried. i just read that this problem is common on C6 and previous versions, after C6 they enabled ui scaling inside the photoshop app for 4k screens. i guess its time to upgrade my software unless i find a work around. i may install the trial version of the newest one and see what that does and if it looks right just buy it

DPI scaling on high res monitors is notoriously bad on Windows. This video was just released yesterday. The suggestion at 4:05 may help (or not) :mellow:

 

 

Edit: Posted before I realized you're using an old version, so the app may not have support for overriding anyway.

Yeah, I have a 4K monitor. As pointed out in the video above, Windows handles high DPI monitors by bumping up the text size. Think I have mine set to 150% or something. Most apps support scaling for high DPI monitors now. The apps which don’t are either tiny or have blurry text, looks like Photoshop supports it.

On the subject of Photoshop, I don’t know if you have checked out Affinity Photo. It is literally just as powerful as Photoshop but costs $40 one time rather than a monthly sub for Photoshop CC. They also have Affinity Designer which is an Illustrator replacement. I am hoping they do a Lightroom replacement sometime as well.

Gimp has a lot of the same features as Photoshop, I have both.  Thank you, Mael, as you beat me to the punch.

Glad I was able to help! :)

 

For comparison, Mac uses vector-based scaling, which tends to (almost always) work much better than Windows' pixel-based method.

 

Unfortunately, Apple products are also a rip-off, so what ya gonna do? :mellow:
