    See if you have your GPU support turned on under performance preferences. If it is enabled, it may be an issue with your graphics driver or card. You can test to see if that is the case by disabling GPU support. Uncheck the one I think that is called "Enable OpenGL Drawing" If the issue persists, it probably isn't related to graphics card support issues. If it goes away, you may want to ensure you have the most recent drivers installed for your graphics card and patches for Photoshop. Of course, there's a chance this won't help… hope it does!

    +Michael Menefee thanks – gave that a try and it persists….. even stranger it is only happening on one of my two monitors…. sadly they are not matched monitors and are at different resolutions (slightly) but its the nice expensive monitor that is showing the issues…

    Make sure you have the latest video drivers for your card and make sure color depth is set for 32bit on both of them. Also check your refresh rates in the driver settings.

    When I save out the image it looks like the image when I move it vs the image when not moving the image…. I womder if it's a addin plugin that might be causing it…

    Nope.. when you just click on the window pane with out moving it… Photoshop changes the preview resolution while moving the photo…as soon as you drop the photo, it goes back to full res. Certain photos will "moire" when you move them…some will not. Normal.

    +A.D. Wheeler really….. I swear this has just started.. maybe I need to start drinking more or less coffee……. seems very strange thou that the saved out image looks more like the one when moving the pane then when at full res and stationary…

    Hmm, re-install photoshop?

    +A.D. Wheeler yeh I hate to say that will be next – which will require a pile of work…. Uninstall photoshop and all plugin suites… then reinstall – I think I rather do a self serve lobotomy….

    But it might come to that…

    You should just be able to un-install PS and re-install it and all the plugs will come back.. I have done that a couple times…

    +A.D. Wheeler man that would make life easier.. I have not tried that – I am curious – so it must keep all those setting hidden somewhere to maintain the connections…. see part of me thinks that's an issue in trying to troubleshoot something.. as those tie ins might actually be the problem….not that I am convinced uninstalling something actually gets rid of everything associated with that application…

    +Brent Burzycki To be extra sure, copy your PLUGINS folder out, re-install, then just copy it back and choose skip for anything that is already there…it will go back together nice and easy for ya.

    +A.D. Wheeler that should include stand alone filter suites like Nik etc? I know they drop the shortcuts in there and I am pretty sure I have seen those go missing in the past…

    Should work just fine…in fact, just copy all suspect add ons out, copy them back, choose skip for what is already there… as long as you dont un-install the plugin itself, should work fine. PS uninstall should only remove what it installed… "should", hence the suggested plugin copy out.

    +A.D. Wheeler great thanks….. more trying to figure this out later. time to not sit on my butt any longer today..

    Does this happen only with layered files, or you could reproduce this with simple flat image?
