MacBook models introduced in or later. Support for one billion colors. Apple Studio Display. Your Mac automatically chooses a default resolution that is optimal for your display. To change the resolution:. If you're using an external display to extend your desktop, you can choose a preferred resolution for each display. To see additional resolutions for the external display, press and hold the Option key while selecting the Scaled button.
Allow your Mac to choose the best resolution for that display, or select Scaled and choose a different resolution. When mirroring your displays, you can optimize for the external display instead of your built-in display. If an app looks different than you expect on your Retina display or high-resolution external display, try opening the app in low-resolution mode:.
Some apps that work best in low-resolution mode or that work only in low-resolution mode will have this mode already turned on, and in that case you might not be able to turn it off. The app developer might offer an update that includes support for the Retina display.

Change the resolution of your display Your Mac automatically chooses a default resolution that is optimal for your display. This technique has its drawbacks, however, and means that users can never quite trust the brightness and shadow detail of an image on a laptop display.
Are the shadows in the image file actually as seen, or are they a bit more open, or a bit more clogged, as seen when your head is a bit higher or lower in relation to the screen. And are colors exactly as seen on screen? Even to a second viewer, who is reviewing your images with you, and is a bit to your left or right.
The answer to this conundrum is to use a proper IPS screen which shows similar color and brightness at a wide range of viewing angles. The flip side of this coin is increased battery drain to display this wide, even view of the screen. In addition to the increased pixel count of the Retina screen, these two factors resolution, viewing angle are the top two reasons the computer uses more juice.
This produces the highest quality screen I have ever seen on a laptop; but the high drain, custom batteries will not be inexpensive to replace, when the time comes. The Retina display can produce luminance levels as high as candelas per meter squared. This is not the brightest display on the market, but it is still bright enough for all reasonable uses.
This range of brightness is valuable for color managed use and calibration, where adjusting the display to an appropriate brightness for the ambient light level is important. The best of current display calibration systems, including the Spyder4 devices, characterizes devices based on display type.
Fitting well into this category improves the accuracy of calibration on this display. Display calibration includes user control adjustments, which are not really relevant for laptops, where the brightness must be changed for use in different environments, with different levels of ambient light; and video LUT adjustments, which gray balance the display and set an appropriate tone response curve gamma, in simplest terms for all applications on the device, at a global level.
The Retina display is a good citizen, allowing accurate readings of colors for gray balancing, and accurate readings of luminance for tone response mapping. The other component of the calibration and profiling process consists of creating an ICC profile describing the current state of your display, its primary colors, its tone response curve or gamma, and other factors.
Resolution does not effect color and density measurements, so the main feature of the Retina display is not a problem for profiling. The Retina display, by avoiding problematic technologies or extreme color saturations, allows for very accurate profiling of the display. I will oversee detailed comparisons to a laboratory grade display measurement device next week, but even in advance of that process, I have full confidence that the Retina display is being capable of being very accurately profiled by latest generation profiling tools such as the Spyder4.

Calibration can effect the luminance of a display, by dimming it in the video LUTs, and reduce the gamut by pulling down one or more of the primaries to generate more a more balanced whitepoint. But the gamut shown is the native gamut of the device. As for third party apps on the Retina Display, as I noted, Photoshop does not yet support the full resolution, but both Photoshop and Lightroom both display color correctly on it.
With a display that is a dead ringer to sRGB, comparison to aRGB is rather pointless, it will display everything except that little chevron shaped wedge from blue up through saturated cyans to green, and a similar wedge down from green, through saturated yellows to red. I read that he should be smaller than non-retina display of So it is larger than all Apple displays. Apart from the whole gamut discussion I really like the fact that the viewing angle is vastly improved over previous MBP displays due to IPS technology.
I do hope that for the years to come Apple does not compromise on these fronts. While you seem to have some confusion about AdobeRGB a space that can display more saturated greens and cyans, but which is not matched well to non-color managed functions and sRGB, both this article and my own testing show this to be an excellent photo editing display; possibly the best laptop photo editing screen ever.
The gamut is considerable larger than apple laptops of a couple of years ago, and even if its down slightly from the very last MacBook Pro, that reduction normalizes it to sRGB images, as well as the iPad 3. The quality of the screen, viewing angle, and reduced reflectivity are far more important than chasing fluorescent greens. In fact, the callibration process forced me to knock it down to bring it to a proper range.
I hope you are able to acclimate to the little things that just never are quite the same…. Nice review, thank you. Is it just me? Or does everyone else think the retina is dark? How do you calibrate a retina monitor? How do you calibrate a Retina Monitor? Just like any other monitor. Get a calibrator ideally a latest generation one set the target values appropriately automatic, at least with a Spyder and tell it to calibrate.
Great article, thank you. I would like to use the rMBP for photo editing. What are your thoughts on this? I think its a reasonable plan. And you can add another display later if needed. But be sure to hardware calibrate your rMBP or any other display before you do photo editing on it!
The screens are just too contrasty and if trying to print a photo edited on a MacBook Pro 15 inch I7 quad high res screen, it appears not contrasty and washed out. Once the images are brought to the MacPro desktop and edited on external aRBG monitor which has his own software and hardware calibration, the images print perfectly on Epson large format printer.
My question: on a calibrated retina display, will the black contrast be similar to external monitors or will it be as contrasty as the non retina displays on the Mac laptops or desktops and again, what looks like a rich black prints as non-contrasty washed out dark grey? Also, can the brightness be calibrated so that it can be matched for printing the picture files directly on the epson printers?
That depends on what you mean by blacks, and by contrasty. And what media types you use, and whether you soft proof. And how bright your display is, and how bright your viewing light is. Very nice article.
