How Do You Increase Camera RAW Interface Font Size?

How do you increase the font size in Camera RAW's interface within Photoshop? When opened via Bridge, ACR seems to inherit Bridge preferences - but not so in Photoshop. I got a higher resolution monitor, and now ACR is almost unusable for me. (Yes, I changed my video settings in Windows 10).

What version of Photoshop and what version of the camera raw plug-in are you using? Current versions (Photoshop 22.x and Camera Raw 13.x) get their scaling from the OS.  https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/hidpi-retina.html

I am using a 32-inch "2K" monitor - 2560 x 1440 pixels, 93 ppi.

With display settings set at 125%, the ACR interface is tiny, no matter

how I set interface preferences in Photoshop.

Attached ACR_Small_Screen.jpg is a screenshot with UI Font Size set to

large and UI Scaling set to Auto (100% and 200% settings have no effect

on font size).

With display settings set at 150%, the ACR interface is HUGE, no matter

how I set interface preferences.

Attached ACR_Giant_Screen.jpg is a screenshot with UI Font Size set to

tiny and UI Scaling set to Auto (100% and 200% settings have no effect

on font size).

I shut down and restarted Windows, and shut down and restarted Photoshop

at each stage.

I find that the tiny font is hard to use, the giant font requires

scrolling to get through the settings - I'd love to have the happy

medium that I had before. Photoshop's UI Font Size setting doesn't seem

to have any effect on the ACR Font Size.

Thanks for your help!

Hello, you need to use the web interface instead of replying to email to attach screenshots.

Which version of Camera Raw and Photoshop are you using? 19.1.4 for Ps?

The document I posted above should help.

 

Photoshop offers a full range of choices for UI scaling—from 100% through 400% in 25% increments.

Photoshop adjusts its resolution based on your Windows settings:

  • In Windows, select Start > Settings > System > Display. Now, under Scale And Layout, choose a scaling factor for each of your displays. See Microsoft Support for View display settings in Windows 10.

I have just set my Start > Settings > System > Display then choose Scale and Layout. Choosed to 175%, my photoshop font become bigger and look ugly, and my camera raw is still small, just become a little bigger.

Set the photoshop preferrences , edit -> preferrences -> interface -> UI Font size -> Large , it makes photoshop bigger and a little ugly, but camera raw is still same, same font size.

Are you sure the solution to make Camera Raw font size bigger is windows display setting? any another solution?

There is no way to scale individual elements of the UI. It's all controlled by the OS.
