    How to change the font size in Lightroom

    lindas63259092

      First of all let me state that I am very new to Lightroom. When a friend downloaded a free trial I noticed that the font size underneath the histogram was much smaller than when I recently signed up for the monthly subscription. Could anyone please guide me and tell me how I can change the font so it's not so large. I also noticed when I'm using Lightroom in my college class it's much smaller also. I have a PC but that didn't effect the first time it was downloaded for the free trial. Any help is greatly appreciated.

          It’s possible to change the font scaling in the UI although the choices in older versions (LR4) are limited to:

          Auto

          Small

          Large

          Even the large setting does not make a great difference on HiDpi monitors. But give it a try by going to:

          Edit >> Preferences >> Interface (tab)

          Lightroom >> Preferences >> Interface (tab) on Mac OS

          Click the drop down icon to the right of Font Size and change to Large. Then quit LR and re-launch for the change to take effect.

          In LR6 there are more choices:

          Auto

          Small

          Medium

          150%

          200%

          250%
