In the above picture you can see alternate options under text aliasing called WIndows LCD. These only became visible to me after removing a GPU and all drivers, but with a new GPU it is still present?
My question is, how do you get this aliasing option as a default?
Edit: Bottom text is using Sharp aliasing.
I see your image and the Windows LCD option in the text tool option bar. I'm not going to remove my GPU for I only have one video adapter. I also not going to remove my video drivers. I don't have the DINOT fote. Turning GPU Support off in CS6, CS6 does not add a text option Windows LCD. I can not help you sorry.
The text antialiasing styles aren't dependent on GPU usage.
They should always be available.
Understandably, but what is confusing is these aliasing options popped up after :
1) I had Severe issues w/ GPU. Photoshop would not stay open for more than 2 minutes without crashing. Ultimately error was with gfx card, uninstalled all drivers and replaced card.
2) When replacing the GPU, I was using windows gpu drivers for a few days. That is when these anti-aliasting options showed up. 'Use Graphics Processor' was not even an option.
3) When new GPU installed, this option for aliasing was still available.
So now the question is where is CS6 reading these as options?
This is on Windows x64 on CS6 also.
CS6 doesn't have those options - they are new in Photoshop CC.
Bump to this topic since no response
Could it be coincidence?
As Chris has stated, these new anti-aliasing options were added in Photoshop CC 14.x.
Is it possible you connected the appearance of these options with something you did with the GPU instead of the correct observation that they appeared when you installed the Photoshop CC 14.x upgrade?
These options have always been visible for me in Photoshop CC, all minor versions.
As far as how to make "Windows LCD" the default, do this:
1. Start Photoshop and create a small document.
2. Select the T tool and set it to the anti-aliasing setting you want.
3. Enter a few characters of text, verifying they are using the anti-aliasing setting you want.
4. Quit/Close Photoshop, so that its preferences are saved to disk.
It will make that anti-aliasing setting the default next time you run it and do text entry.
