PSU Full Screen Image not Sharp on 4K Monitor

Post by tplunkett » 11 Jul 17 4:28

I am running PSU version 3.3.0.2598 on a Windows Dell XPS 15 Notebook. This PC's resolution is set to 3840x2160. I am noticing that when I view an image full size it is not as sharp as it should be. I have the Options Setting to view Full Sized Image enabled and Show Sharpened Disabled. When I open the image directly from the hard drive in MS Paint, the image is nice and crisp as it should be. I originally processed the image in CaptureOne and when viewing in C1 before exporting to JPG it looks razor sharp as it similarly does in MS Paint in JPG format - but it is decidedly less sharp in the full screen view of Photo Supreme.

Anyone else experience this or have thoughts?

PSU doesn't support high dpi displays. So it's either blurry text and photos (due windows just enlarges the application) or disable windows brute force scaling and you get sharp photos with extremely tiny ui and text.

Thank you for your reply hesee.

I know we cannot know the exact roadmap as Hert understandably does not publish it but I am hopeful this is on the near term roadmap. As a photo management software platform, if there is one thing us photographers definitely want to see, it is our images in high resolution. :D

Given the proliferation of 4K monitors these days I would think many of us would now be experiencing this issue.

There's mantis ticket about that, but doesn't look good so far: http://mantis.idimager.com/view.php?id=3066
