Default Faster and better pictures in PS CS4

Depending on your graphics card, your pictures in PS can be much faster and
better looking, for example in 33% it looks pretty bad, but in 50 it's OK.
Go to:
Edit - Prefs - Performance

Click the box under GPU.
Restart.
If it's all OK you should now see in and out zooming in real time and all
levels sharp.

If it doesn't, get a better graphics card: it's worth it!

The way CS4 taps the GPU is underwhelming at best.

If the zoom is a Multiple of the image size the it will always look better
then one that is not. If you have 4 pixel square and zoom to make it 16 its
going to look better then splitting them to get a 12 Pixel sq. Same works in
reverse.
Paint shop Pro used to have fixed step's of zoom but folks wanted it to be
like PS because That more expensive prog must be right to interpolarate
everything

thanks, yes - 3D rendering.


not impressed.


Interpolating images for viewing *while I'm editing* is the silliest idea
ever. and moves the software along with the modern video cards further away
from being graphics editing cards than ever before


There's a reason image editing programs other than Adobe zoomed by factors,
it was to avoid interpolating.

There are somethings I like about CS4 and some I have to still get
familiar with. I am using the Standard version,
I don't need or use the 3D or video stuff.

Overall It works pretty well for me. I am using it on a PowerBook Pro
17 2.93G with the dual switchable option NVIDIA GeForce 9400M and 9600M
GT.
