cjchambers replied to mr.burns's topic in Pre-V2 Archive of Affinity on Desktop Questions (macOS and Windows)Thanks for the reply. I'm absolutely with you in terms of pixel count. It's more quality/accuracy that I'm concerned about. Unless I've misunderstood, when you look at an image at 1:1 zoom with 100% scaling at your display's native resolution you're seeing something as close to possible to the actual image. This is why people go to 1:1 to check focus, sharpness, noise etc. When the windows scaling gets involved, then additional scaling has been applied to the image and you're no longer seeing a 'true' image. Specifically, you're likely to see a softer image. I'm very much open to proving myself wrong, so I'd quite like to try and test this out with some test charts when I get the chance!
cjchambers replied to mr.burns's topic in Pre-V2 Archive of Affinity on Desktop Questions (macOS and Windows)Just posting to ask if anyone has yet found any sort of workaround for this issue? I recently bought a 4K monitor specifically for photo editing and I find I'm having to use 200% scaling in windows control panel for it to be anywhere near usable. In other words, I haven't actually gained any resolution over my old monitor! I have tried changing font sizes in windows control panel too, but that doesn't help with the icons and it kinda puts everything out of alignment. I love Affinity Photo but I'm pretty disappointed about this, to be honest, and the fact that it's been an issue since 2016 is particularly disappointing. Maybe I'm being naive but surely it's an incredibly easy fix to implement?!
