How to get rid of aliasing in preview (thumbnails)?

I don't get it, is there a way to turn on anti-aliasing for thumbnails? I tried all settings for preview, nothing changes. When I open Bridge thumbnails look normal for a second, and then they start to look like this (the first screenshot - Bridge, the second - ACDSee), just look at the lines.
Please help.

Hi,

 

Thank you for the feedback.

 

Could you let us know about the bridge version and OS details so we can better understand this issue?

Also, could you please share sample files with us at sharewithbr@adobe.com?

 

 

Regards,
Bridge Team

Hi.
Bridge - 13.0.4.755
OS - Windows 11 Home, 22H2
Also had the same problem with the latest Bridge on Windows 10, and tried some previous version of the Bridge, in case it's a new problem, but faced the same.
I sent samples via mail.

I've been having the same issue since Bridge 2023. It is still present on 2024.

I open Bridge, thumbnails look normal for a second and then they become all aliased with jagged edges.

 

I've tried every combination of the Preview Size/Preview Quality/Transparency settings, nothing helps. Disabling or enabling "Use software rendering" in settings also doesn't change anything.

 

All this with the default Bridge settings - no settings from previous versions transferred, I even deleted the entire Bridge 2024 folder in AppData\Roaming\Adobe so tht it would reset itself for sure.

 

Sometimes the initial (good quality, anti-aliased) thumbnails "stick" for some reason - however, it becomes all ugly and jagged as soon as I click on it.

 

In Bridge 2022 this only happens for the thumbnails, but not for the Preview panel. In 2023 and now 2024 it also happens for the Preview panel as well.

 

I guess this has something to do with gpu acceleration or something like that.

 

I am on Windows 10 and I am using an Nvidia GTX 1060 gpu, a 1440p monitor at 100% scale in windows. Latest updates on all drivers. I am also experiencing this same issue on two other Windows 10 machines. No need to ask for sample files - it happens with any an all files - jpg, png, tiff, psd, from any size, resolution, color profile, or source of origin.

 

Actually, I have been having various issues with Bridge since forever. I am still using Bridge 2018 which has no issues neither with the thumbnails nor with the preview panel. No aliasing whatsoever and the thumbnails seem to load way faster. It's a shame that for 6 years Bridge has only managed to get worse and slower.
