Lightroom Classic - 11.5 release Camera Raw 14.5

Build [202208080927-8a575c91]

OS - Windows 10 Home -version 21H1

 

Steps to reproduce - 

  • Open Lightroom
  • turn on 2nd monitor display
  • select any photo. The photo selected will be sharp on the primary screen, but fuzzy on the secondary
  • No change something like making it use auto settings.
  • The image on 1st and 2nd screens is now sharp as expected. 

It's as if the refresh of data has forced both screens to reload. 

On the inital load/selection of the photo you can see the photo loading and sharpening as it does so - but appears to stop 1 step before becoming fully sharp.  If I move onto another photo then come back to inital photo - it is now sharp. sharp.pngnotSharp.png

Should have said that it's fixed in version 12.0

It appears to me that Lightroom loads a low resolutions preview (are high-resolution previews generated?), until it get forced to generate a high-resolution preview.

Not sure it's quite that, and even if it was I'd still onsider that an issue.
So if I let it load, then go to another photo, then back again - it then renders fully.  As if it has a slightly higher baseline to start from, then completes it fully.

If I quit LR, then open it back again, it will do the same again to a previously fully rendered image on the 2nd monitor screen.

Your standard previews might be too small for the resolution of the secondary display. Check the standard preview setting in catalog settings > File Handling. It is likely a bug however that it doesn't generate the preview correctly as soon as you open the image in develop.

I did check those settings before I did an update. It was set to auto and in ( ) my monitor res. Given it's now fixed in latest release I'm happy again.

I've updated to the latest version which seems to be a big update and the issue is no longer an issue 👍
