I think it is worth the price difference.
I´m not even running in the best "retina mode" I run the 1680x1050 emulation and still the difference is quite clear.

Adding Retina Support took quite a lot of work because all of the icons and labels used in Photoshop had to be redrawn or resized to make them more readable on the Retina displays.

As far as choosing a Monitor is concerned, this is definitely a purchase on which I believe very strongly that you should never try to save cash!

Buy the very best monitor that you can because not only will the quality of your image-editing benefit but so will the health of your EYES!

Are those grasshoppers I hear in the distance?

Might be … but I thought that grasshoppers usually go quiet during the Winter months?

Perhaps this one still thinks that it is operating in the South African Time Zone?

From what I understand Retina support is only available for cloud users, not for stand-alone users?

Retina support was also included in the CS 13.0.2 upgrade for Non-Cloud Users but, unless you actually have a Retina screen and the adjusted settings are important to you, my suggestion would be that you do not install that upgrade because Adobe has removed the "View at Print Size" facility.

??? Why? Well, you probably don't know the answer either... even though I'm not a big printer, I always thought that function was useful, especially in gauging how work would look in print; a dilemma we often have at work. Yes, of course, your printer can send you proofs, but that takes days. A preview on screen is so much faster.

Their excuse was that Print Size wasn't working accurately but it certainly worked very accurately for those of us who understood how to set it up!

Following quite an outcry, they have now said that they will replace it in a future upgrade but do add your screams of pain and anguish to the threads on the Adobe Photoshop Forum.

Pah! Probably only for Adobe Cloud users. :angry:

I have just discovered that Adobe posted a Script a couple of days ago which we can use in the interim to regain the View at Print Size function.

It does work but is not as quick as having a Custom KBSC as we had previously.

Another reason why you might want to stick at 13.0.1 and not install later upgrades for the moment

This issue is also affecting the latest Upgrade for those with a Cloud Licence.

Well well well... and one wonders why people are willing to deal with an amt.dll they got from bittorrent and having a few adobe.com urls point to 192.168.0.1 in their hosts file. It seems that the product works a lot better that way.

What's beyond me is that Adobe doesn't simply have a Cloud version. Now you have people wrecking their existing installation because they're installing a 13.0.2 update that they're not supposed to install on a non-cloud version. I wonder when a bugfix (13.0.3) comes out, how is Adobe going to distribute that?

13.0.2 has already been superceded by 13.0.3 and both are for the NON-Cloud versions.

The cloud versions are 13.1.x and they do contain a very nice enhancement to the Blur Galleries filters which us non-Cloudies won' get until the next full Upgrade.

Retina support is part of all of the updaters.
