I recently updated to Dreamweaver 2018 and have noticed a lot of distortion in all images and a lot of the text in the Design view. I thought that this could be a new settings to make things faster but I was unable to find any new setting that could cause this problem. I then thought maybe it was an issue with the sites CSS or other special setting but have the same problem if I create a new page with no CSS or other special settings. Attached is a picture as an example of what is happening. I added only a picture of the Adobe logo and as can be seen it is distorted. The image width and height are also set correctly and are the same dimensions of the actual image.

However, if I change from Design to Live the picture looks fine. I understand that the Design view is not perfect but I've never had this issue with any previous version of Dreamweaver.

It looks like you're zoomed in a little in Design View, that image is being displayed larger than the html would suggest.

Try going to View > Design View Options > Magnification > set it to 100%

Zoom level is correctly set to 100%. Also, setting the zoom level to any other percentage keeps the same distortion.

Have you restarted your computer since installing this version of DW?

Is the image file within a Defined Site in DW?

What happens when you save the page and image to your site and then close and reopen the file?
