—1 Absolute full screen: If you still can't see enough of your image, click the rightmost of the image window controls to see the photo set against a neutral black background. (You can't change the color of this backdrop it's always black.) The menu bar disappears, limiting your access to commands, but you can still access many commands using keyboard shortcuts. Only the toolbox and palettes remain

visible.
As noted in the tool tips, pressing the F key lets you cycle through the standard window, full screen with menu bar, and absolute full screen modes. If you need access to a menu command when working in the absolute full screen mode, press Shift+F to display the menu bar. Press Shift+F again to hide it. Tip
If Photoshop's screen elements interfere with your view of an image, you can hide all palettes including the toolbox and Options bar by pressing the Tab key. To bring the hidden palettes back into view, press Tab again.
You can hide the palettes but leave the toolbox and Options bar on screen by pressing Shift+Tab.
Press Shift+Tab again to bring the palettes back. (Pressing Tab while the standard palettes are gone hides the toolbox and Options bar.) If the rulers are turned on, they remain visible at all times. Press Ctrl+R (z -R on the Mac) to toggle the ruler display off and on.Photoshop If you don't want to hide the palettes, you can reposition an image in either full screen mode by dragging it with the hand tool. Or press the spacebar and drag when any other tool is selected.Tip Here's one more tip for good measure: Shift-click the icon for absolute full screen to switch the display mode for all open images. Then press Ctrl+Tab (Control-Tab on the Mac) to cycle through the open images. This same trick works for the standard and full screen with menu bar modes.
_ Go to ImageReady: Click this icon to switch to ImageReady, Photoshop's companion Web graphics program. The Options bar
Spanning the width of the Photoshop window, the Options bar (labeled back in Figures 2-2 and 2-3) contains the major controls for the tools in the toolbox. You establish tool settings by selecting check boxes, clicking icons, and choosing options from pop-up menus in the bar. In other words, think of the Options bar as just another floating palette, albeit a long, skinny one. (Longtime Photoshop users will remember that the Options bar was once a floating Options palette.) However, you use different tactics to hide, display, and relocate the Options bar than you do a regular palette:
Choose Window ® Options or double-click any tool icon in the toolbox to toggle on the display of the Options bar. (You should see a check mark to the left of the command when the Options bar is visible.) Choose Window ® Options again to toggle off the display of the Options bar. You also can press Tab to toggle on and off the display of the Options bar and all other palettes.
By default, the Options bar is docked at the top of the program window. Drag the vertical handle at the left end of the bar to relocate it. If you drag the Options bar to the top or bottom of the window, the bar becomes docked again.
Unfortunately, you can't change the size or shape of the Options bar.Cross-Reference You can attach regular palettes to the Options bar by dragging them into the docking well at the right end of the bar. The upcoming "Rearranging and docking palettes" section tells all. Tool presets Let's say you frequently make 3%-'-4-inch prints on your printer. This probably also means that you frequently set the crop tool for those specific dimensions. If you use the crop tool for some other purpose, however, the next time you want to make a 3%-'-4-inch print, you'll have to reenter those measurements. Tool presets let you save specific tool settings so that you can quickly access them without having to do a lot of typing and tweaking.
Start by selecting a tool and adjusting the settings until they're perfect. Set up the ideal gradient and direction settings for the gradient tool, a frequently used tolerance for the magic wand, or a combination of font, size, and alignment options for the type tool. Here are ways you can save those settings as a tool preset:
Choose Window ® Tool Presets to display the Tool Presets palette, which is stashed in the docking well by default. Then click the new tool preset icon at the bottom of the palette (labeled in Figure 2-6).
