Yes, definitely an issue! I'm the OP of the other thread, have reported it on photoshop.com (feedback). Not sure why it's only certain images.
Easiest way to see is duplicate or virtual copy a problem image, then look at or compare the supposedly exact images in before/after!
Yep, found your thread Andy. I am seeing this issue with .psd files.
I am having the same issue also on my Windows 7 x64 system also. both monitors swapped around cables change and recalibrated.
A few things I noticed while experimenting with the issue;
- When changing the view on the second monitor to Fill, or zooming in to 1:1 and comparing it to the 1st monitor in same view. They are both razor sharp
- when zooming in and out on second monitor a few times on the same image and finally zooming out. The image is razor sharp and a few seconds later turns blurry
Very strange, and I am very confident it is not a hardware issue.
Same issue here, but Win7 32 bit...
Same exact situation for me, Win 7 64 bit also. Had no problem under 4.1. Images are sharp when zoomed in, but blurry when displayed on second monitor in loupe.
I'm sure this happened once before. Don't remember exactly when, but I remember it -- i was one of the casualities. I also seem to remember it especially affected high-res 2nd monitors and took ADBE a long time for a fix. There was a great deal of denial at first by the fan boys, but it was eventually addressed by the next .1 release. Perhaps it will go faster this time.
LR 4.3, and that ugly issue doesn't be solved ! Please, Adobe team, do something. Professionnal photographers and your all customers are waiting....
Precision : blur effect occurs on the second monitor when you display a "portrait" picture, not in "landscape" format on 1:1 ratio and lower (Adaptative zoom)
I have the identical issue. Windows 7, 64-bit, 8 gb ram, LR 4.3. Anyone figured this out yet?
I believe I found the cause and solution.
Your second monitor is displaying lower resolution previews at full size. To fix, do the following.
- In the menu system - Edit - Preferences -> Jpeg preview = Full Size
- Select all the photos you want to render previews on (Ctrl-A).
- In the Menu system - Library -> Previews -> Render 1:1 Previews
Now that you set the default to full size previews, LR should now render them in full size when imported.
Hope that helps!
I had same issue with Lightroom 5 Win8 64bit 32GB ram. I always import 1:1 and did not have the problem until I updated using CC to LR5... and it apparently reset some of my preferences. I went in and had to select Preferences -> Jpeg preview = Full Size and now the problem is over. Thank you Trevor Patrick.
I spoke too soon...
'makes no sense. I changed jpeg preview to full size and restarted LR and thought it was fixed -- but after going through a few -- 1:1 blurry on monitor 2 again!...
for now I guess I have to do focus checks on monitor 1 and preview the images on monitor 2. No blurry problem on monitor 1 1:1 previews.
I'm seeing the blur in Develop, but not in Library. In Develop it'll be tack sharp for half a second before blurring.
I have the same issue, blury image in the full screen second monitor.
FYI: It will sharpen up in the second monitor as soon as you tweak one value in the develop settings. Adjust exposure say -.01 and bam the image gets sharp.
But it's not just a develop module issue for me, it happens in Library as well.
Lightroom 5.0 x64 on Windows 8
Same problem on just updated LR 5.3 for Mac.
Since the first post was on Oct 2012, the problem is more than one year old, at least.
Yep, I can confirm. The problem is still there.
Seems like there is no solution - do people just post and wait
do these messages ever get a reply or comment from Adobe.
Yes it was reported (see reply 2) and I saw couple of examples also reported at the time. In a later release note reference was made to the problem, but in LR 5.3 it seems to be still there.
There was a workaround of sorts by click-zoom then click-unzoom, not sure if this is still effective.
It's more suprising since lightroom is obviously setup for multiple monitors, because the 2nd one does actions/show views which can be totally different from the primary..
