Hi there,

Does anyone have any ideas on how to stop these BLACK FRAMES appearing every time I zoom in and out on Photoshop CC?? They are driving me crazy. I have updated operating system, rebooted system numerous times, saved file and reopened (doesn't 'save' the squares but the problem still persists). See attached image of what i mean. I am running Catalina on a Mac Book Pro.

Thanks in advance.

Carly

Hi Carly, 

 

Sorry that you're seeing these strange black squares in Photoshop while zooming in and out. 

 

Would you mind sharing the version of Photoshop you're working with? Check under the Help> System info menu in Photoshop.

 

Does the problem occurs with all the files you work with or does it happen with a specific file/file format?

 

Please disable the use of graphics processor from the Preferences> Performance menu in Photoshop and let us know if that helps?

  • Launch Photoshop.
  • Choose Photoshop > Preferences > Performance (macOS).
  • Deselect Use Graphics Processor.
  • Quit and relaunch Photoshop.

 

Thanks,

Akash

Go to Preferences > Technology Previews... and check "Disable Native Canvas" - then restart Photoshop. Does the problem still occur?
