    So I understand how scaling works. My question is if I use a scaled resolution does this just scale the user interface or images as well.

    For example using best for retina it pixel doubles the ui but leaves images etc at nativie resolution.

    Does it do the same with scaled scale the ui and leave images at native.

    Thanks for your help

    so no application will use native resolution, with just the ui scaled?

    so say in safari the ui elements will be scaled but content won't?

    Im a bit confused i think

    I was too. I think the scaled settings are actually equivalent to Window's screen resolution & the max you can go is 1920x1200 without hacks.

    Just the UI is scaled, if the program supports it. So, in preview looking at a photo, the photo won't be scaled unless you zoom in. The UI is just the proper size, and the resolution is a scaled retina resolution.

    If the program isn't retina capable, everything is blurry because it is pixel doubling everything.
