Font Readability Improvements

I use a 25” Dell Monitor with a resolution of 2560 X 1440 wired to my MacBook Pro. I am finding the font size for the various customization tools too small for my 77 year-old eyes.

Also, for me, the grayed out fonts for tools that have not been used in an image could stand to be a skosh brighter.

Having options in PhotoLab preferences / settings to tweak both these parameters to the user’s liking would be most welcomed — at least by me.

Thank you.

Hi Ski,
Thanks for your feedback!
We are aware that PhotoLab has room for improvements there, and we’ll think of something better for a future version.


Hi Walter - would be very welcomed by me, too.

It’s a year on since Walter wrote. Has anything improved Walter?

My eyesight is no longer perfect. I find PL almost impossible to use in any serious way because of the interface readability. I would like to use my copy of PL5 as my number 1 photo app but find other software has far better readability.

It really is important. Many current users will develop eyesight problems as time passes. Please DxO, just improve the interface.

Are you on a MAC or PC. What size if your monitor. What resolution is your monitor set to?


Sorry Mark, it was a quick question born out of frustration at having to give up using PL and I was remiss not to include that information.

I’m using a MacBook Pro with either the built in 15.4" Retina display 2880 x 1800 of the laptop or an LG Ultrafine monitor 21.5" 4096 x 2304. I really need to use the LG monitor with PL5 and even then it isn’t perfect yet with Capture One I can do much on the laptop and have little problem if I use the LG.

Part of my problem is looking at panel items that are greyed out grey on grey at slightly differing levels but size of text is a big issue too. I could understand it if ALL software caused me the problem but it does seem to be a PL issue to me. And of course my eyes!

Thank you for your concern.
