Jaguar “X”

Quick Tip: Get the “Maximum File Browser Experience”

If you know you're going to be spending some time in the File Browser (sorting, categorizing, etc.), you can get the “Maximum File Browser Experience” by holding the Command key (PC: Control key) before you click on the Toggle File Browser button in the Options Bar. When you do this, it automatically hides the Toolbox and any open palettes, and expands the File Browser to fill your entire screen. Perfect for those times when you're working mostly in the Browser.


When Apple Computer came out with their “gel” look for Mac OS X, that effect quickly became a favorite with designers. When Apple followed up with Mac OS X Jaguar, their Jaguar look became popular, but every tutorial I tried on the Web used Photoshop's Stained Glass filter, and I couldn't find one that really looked like Apple's version; and that's because you can't use that filter. Here's a version I worked out that I hope you'll agree looks much better.
