I have been using Lightroom 3 for a few years now, and after recently changing to a new iMac I am experiencing an issue where images are noticeably blurry and out of focus in Develop and slide show modes while still being sharp in Library and after export?!?! I tried getting some assistance from Adobe, but it seems they no longer support this version.
I have searched the forum and found a few posts re blurry photos, however I was unable to find any solution and hence I thought I will ask the question to the resident gurus.
I am viewing images in the same aspect ratios in both modes, and switch between Library and Develop ( and slideshow) brings on immediate drop in sharpness to the point where they are very blurry. The issue does not correct itself with time.
I would be very grateful for any assistance you might offer.
Is this a retina iMac? Lightroom 3 is so old that it does not know how to deal with retina displays and will always show very low resolution previews on those.
yes it's a retina display, surprised though that it can show them perfectly fine in Library and not Develop stage.
Thanks very much for your response - might be time to update the software.
