Hi guy's? So I'm experiencing a specific problem with my photoshop that I have been unable to solve. So the problem in question is, when open my photos using photoshop, they usually open in camera raw first since I shoot raw. Unfortunately when I'm done tweaking the photo and open it in photoshop, there always seem to be a loss of quality!!! I need help because this is really frustrating 😤

I do not see loss of details with my eyes. Viewing percent is exactly the same that is ok but keep in mind that only 100% viewing should be used for judgement. Go to 100% view and compare that is good viewing scale for judgment. If you still see some difference then something is wrong.

We need to see examples. Ideally a raw and the rendered image uploaded to something like Dropbox. Also the Workflow Options in ACR (what was set for resolution/number of pixels, color space):

Loss of quality? Can you post some screenshot to illustrate the poroblem? Take screenshot of entire window and we may be able to spot some potential problem.

I see a color shift between the two and that is probably down to a bad monitor profile at operating system level.

 

Is your monitor profiled or are you using the default profile on your system?

 

Edit : Scratch that reply. I was viewing on a phone and now back at my PC I see no difference

Export is another topic and story for itself. Some formats like JPEG are applying losy compression so there will be some changes in amount of details, more compression means less quality. Hovewer, you can control amount of compression when saving file in JPEG format with losy compression.

I don't see a loss of quality on a high-end display but as outlined, you really need to zoom BOTH views to 100% (1:1) and provide a screen capture to compare. Zooming out subsamples the preview and each product differs in doing so. Not the right way to view such comparisons.
