Chapter 2. Understanding Navigation and ... > Changing the Screen Display Mode

Changing the Screen Display Mode

In Photoshop, the Screen Display mode determines the background displayed behind the active image. For example, you can change the Screen Mode to black, and hide all the palettes. Since monitors, combined with Photoshop's palettes create a very colorful screen, changing the Screen Mode gives you a chance to see your image against a solid color background.

Change the Screen Mode

Click one of the Screen Mode buttons at the bottom of the toolbox:

  • Standard Screen Mode. Displays the image against a gray background (Win), or with the visible desktop (Mac). All menus and palettes are visible.

  • Full Screen Mode with Menu Bar. Centers the image, and displays it against a gray background.

  • Full Screen Mode. Centers the image, and displays it against a black background.
