So i have a really annoying problem, i do alot of gfx work on forums. Now i got a new laptop and got photoshop cc 2020 on it.

 

The problem is when i make a new document in photoshop like 250x150 as an example its very small then the actually values of the numbers. And when i edit a image in it it is HQ but when i upload it it gets to t he original 250x150 size and my image is LQ.

 

Please help me guys! i hope you guys can!

Sure, imgur is a browser. There is NO natural size. Photoshop says 100% is one size. Browser says 100% is a different size. More apps, another size. The problem is people get used to 100% meaning the same thing, and when the discover it isn't, assume something is brokwn. Nothing is wrong.

You mean your images are 50% of the size on a web site? That's correct with new monitors. They have a lot of detail for photographers, but browsers make everything bigger because users expect it. Just view at 200% in Photoshop, and welcome to the new world....!

100% in Photoshop means 1 image pixel mapped to 1 screen pixel. It bears no relationship to any physical size. That 1 to 1 mapping is essential for critical image adjustment with no scaling artifacts.

 

Some browsers scale the image on Hi ppi screens to make them larger and viewable. If you want to simulate that in Photoshop, then view at 200% which uses 4 screen pixels for each image pixel.

I agree that this might be a display settings issue. Get into your laptop's screen settings; I cannot instruct how without knowing your OS, so you may have to look up how to do this. On Windows 10, it's under Settings or PC Settings - System - Display. If your display is set to something besides 100%, chances are that is the cause.

 

I'm not an expert on UI dsettings, so someone's free to correct me, but I believe if your Photoshop UI (Photoshop under Preferences: Interface) is set to Auto or 100, and your monitor display settings are something like 125%, then items you load onto other programs like a web browser will look larger because your monitor is displaying them at 125%, but Photoshop's UI gives you the actual size. This also explains why the images look blurry to you online. 250x150 is fairly small, so an increase in an image that size would be very visible.
