I have recently purchased an apple imac and have loaded photoshop cs3 onto it. However when photoshop starts up it opens the menu tabs but still leaves the screen saver visible. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to cover the screensaver image. Your help is most appreciated. Sean

You mean the wallpaper?

On the toolbar on the left, I think it is on the bottom/near bottom of the toolbar, next to/below the icon for quick mask.

I'm not sure I understand...

Photoshop on the Mac doesn't have an all-encompassing window with child windows inside it for images being edited. That's a Windows GUI convention.

You should see the Photoshop menu, the palettes and toolbars. If there are no other open windows, you'll be able to see the desktop as well.

Cole is correct, you can 'switch on' a background using a button in the location he suggested. Or you can just drag the corner of the window the image loads in to create some grey space around the file.

I thought what he meant is:
When he open up photoshop and a photo in photoshop, there are gaps between the toolbars and pallettes and the photo, and you can still see the wallpaper underneath it.
Well, at least thats what I think he meant, hence my suggestion.

I think we are thinking the same thing Cole. Either way the bottom icon on the left hand tool bar cycles through window options, several of which effectively hide the desktop wallpaper.

Thanks for the comments. They have answered my question now that I have tried it and see the effect. Thanks again. Sean
