Hi,
I recently upgraded to a new computer and re-installed CS6 (now 64bit), when editing my images after resizing to approx. 1024x768 for posting on the web the image barely fills 2/3 of the working space, however when viewing it on the forums after posting it fills the screen.
I can get it to nearly the same size by changing the view to "fit on screen" in CS6 which the shows the size as +/- 120%.
I've set the display on the computer to the optimal (recommended by windows8) and the size of images and text when browsing is 100%.
Is there a way to change the resolution or whatever in CS6 so that it matches the size when viewing on the web as it poses a bit of a problem doing PP on a image smaller than what it is really shown as one is never 100% of the sharpening etc and I do find that it can happen that the image is under- or over processed.
Regards
Cassie

Did you get a new display with new computer that's higher resolution than the old one? Anyway what you've explained sounds perfectly normal for a 1920x1080/1200 display.

Yes, that's exactly it, so I suppose if you say normal I'll just have to accept it?, but can I ask a stupid question, why is a 1024x768 image smaller in CS6 than the same one viewed on the web?

Images will display at different sizes, depending on the software and the device.

On the Web, without "resizing" functions, an image will display "full size", meaning at 100% of your monitor's resolution. Viewing it in other software will depend on how that software "shows" it. Opening it in Photoshop will show a "default fill" mode, which typically won't be the same as a Web view.

It sounds like the image in your browser is being resized as a 1024x768 image would not look like it fills the screen on a 1920x1080 monitor. Either the site that is hosting your image is resizing it, or the site that you are viewing is scaling it.

Have you considered using Flickr?
