Screen Resolution

Dear all,

For this end of year, I think I have the stupidest question to ask and I hope you will not be mocking me for the entire next year.

I purchased a new PC screen which resolution is 2x higher (3840*2160 vs 1920*1080)than the one I was working on and of course I tried it with photoshop.

When I (for instance) crop the picture to the desire size (1500*1000) to upload it to my favourite site (not this one of course ;-) ), it really looks small; I tried zooming to 200% hoping to get something acceptable but the image does not look really great.

In fact, and I hope it will be understandable, when I compare the size of a 1500x1000 picture in my browser to the same picture with the same resolution in photoshop, it looks like they have something like a 1.5 ratio

My question is, do you have any advice to get a kind of "what you see is what you get" size in photoshop to check my pictures before uploading them to the site ?

Thanks a lot for your assistance and Season's Greetings to all of you.

Seasons greetings to you as well. Sorry. No help on your question though ;-)

Welcome to the world of scaling problems. I didn't find a solution yet but if the 3840x2560 looks goos, the 1500 should also do.
