As monitor resolution becomes higher, and as people get older, there’s going to be a need for larger text sizes, especially within the user interface. While some operating systems allow you to control this (to an extent), Photoshop also has a built in feature that can help with eye strain.
User Interface Text Size
By default, the UI text size is set to “Small”, which for some people, may be difficult to see. Here’s how to enlarge it.
To access this feature, you need to hop into Photoshop’s interface preferences.
Windows: Edit > Preferences > Interface
Mac: Photoshop > Preferences > Interface
Once you’re in the interface preferences, towards the bottom, you’ll see the Text option, where you can choose from one of three sizes; Small, Medium, Large.
Here’s a look at the difference between the small and large settings.
In addition to the workspace’s UI becoming larger, you’ll also see the change within dialogue boxes, such as Layer Styles, as seen below.
A Big Difference?
The difference you’re going to see between the small and large settings won’t be astronomical, but it will be enough to ease your eye strain. I hope this helps!
