Hi all, getting something really weird with my Photoshop. Everytime I place an image into Photoshop, it degrades.

Here is the image as previewed in Windows Photos app.

Everything looks good, but this is what happens when I place it into Photoshop.

Anyone know what is happening?

Thanks!

Normal Place image scale via interpolation. Only placed Vector File like .svg and .ai file are vector smart objects.  And there are no actual path for these vector file in Photoshop. If you  open these vector Smart Object Layers Object, if you have AI installed on your machine the vector .svg and .ai file will be opened in Illustrator.

If you place in a small object if you scale the layer way up in size the image will be interpolated and tend to become soft and blurry. What you posted looks like ihe interpolation method you default to cause the image to posterize some. The second image more than the first one both image seem ho has this effect.

Why did you place the image and not open it?

Could you please post a screenshot taken at View > 100% with the pertinent Panels (Layers, Channels, Options Bar, …) visible?
