Soft, out-of-focus previews.

Hi, All.


I am running Bridge CS6 for the first time and noticed that the previews are very soft, as if appearing to be out-of-focus. The problem disappears as soon as I open the photo in Photoshop and Camera Raw.


Just in case the information is useful my camera is a Canon 5D Mk III and I shoot in RAW.


How can I get better previews to show in Bridge, hopefully looking as good as those in Photoshop?


Are there any new settings of which I am unaware?

    Have you got 'Generate Monitor-Size Previews in Bridge' enabled (Preferences > Advanced)? Have you got 'Generate HQ Previews on Demand/Always' selected in the toolbar?
