    First, check out episode 580. See if there is anything there that helps.
    Other than that, there’s not much you can do. Try going into System Preferences, Desktop & Screensaver, Desktop and turn off “translucent menu bar” — that may make things a little crisper.
    Maybe consider getting a screen with a lower resolution (so each pixel is a larger size relative to the size of the screen). For that you’d need to return your iMac and get a Mac mini and then get your own screen.

    thanks,turning off translucent bar has helped slightly.i so like this big screen for photos,but will consider your last option.i must decide if the minuses outway the pluses! i dont know how long apple will wait for me to decide on returning mac!
    is mac mini just as powerful?

      At the high end a Mac mini can be pretty comparable. Look at the tech specs at the Apple site and compare. A Mac Pro is the next step, but that is much more expensive.
