Hello Everyone,

Anyone know why?

 

Thanks!

I think it’s because Apple removed that option from macOS. Because you are probably not going to be able to find the Open in Low Resolution option for any other application in macOS 13 Ventura.

 

Open in Low Resolution was probably a temporary option Apple provided while developers got their applications properly upgraded for Retina displays, and Apple probably decided that 10 years after introducing Retina displays in 2012, any applications that hadn’t adapted had to be forced to by removing the Low Resolution option.

 

A quick Internet search indicates that Apple removed Open in Low Resolution as of macOS 12 Monterey, if so, it’s already been gone for over a year.

My main Mac is still on Monterey, and what I see agrees with the Internet search…no Open in Low Resolution.

 

Are you able to find any other applications that have it in Ventura? Even if you install an old application?

I use a program called Garmin Basecamp.  Garmin is POOR, POOR, POOR at maintaining their software and the maps load slowly on a Retina 5k display.  Basecamp worked great pre Monterey when run in Low Res mode but the ability was removed.  The following was a solution to the issue on Monterey.  

 

The solution to opening program in Low Res mode is this Terminal command.  I haven't tried this with LrC but it works fine with Basecamp.   Just change the path for the Basecamp App to the LrC App.  I am not sure if works with LrC but it should.

 

open /Applications/Garmin\ Basecamp.app --args -AppleMagnifiedMode YES

 

You can turn this line into an app using an Automator run a shell script which is what I have done for Basecamp.  There are probably issues such as dragging photos to the App Icon to open LrC that could be solved with extra arguments to the command.

 

If you are interested I will post a screen clip of the Automator App that I created
