Help needed with CS3

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Alan Birchard, Nov 27, 2008.

  1. The Photoshop CS3 palettes are white, and they're programmed to be
    white, and there's no changing it in three clicks or three hundred.
    Your "three click" claim is worse than a bluff; it's an outright lie.

  2. I'm perfectly aware of that, since the ancient version 5 I've been
    using for ten years does the same thing. But you see, I don't want
    the menu bar, and the taskbar, and the title bar and everything else
    to go away. I want them not white. That's why there is a way to set
    system wide preferences.
    Not only no room, no desire. The issue is the Adobe programmers
    forcing white, not my lack of hardware or my lack of willingness to
    wear sunglasses while I paint.

  3. Uhmm... I wonder if you'd do me the simple courtesy of leaving this
    thread alone. Please?

    The menu bar goes away if you press F a couple of times.
    Well, I'm afraid you will have to talk to Adobe then.
    I think we all understand your frustrations, but there are no magicians
    Don't ridicule yourself by going on and on about it.

    Last thing I can think of is glueing some sort of filter to parts of your
    monitor screen,
    but I doubt you have the desire to do that.

    I don't have cs3 only cs2.

    The Tools, History, Layers Palettes are mostly sort of beige.

    The Drop downs for File, Edit, Image, etc are White, but I could hardly
    describe them as "Glaring White", and they are certainly not bright enough
    or on the screen long enough to cause any eye strain.

    Could it be that you have your monitor set incorrectly?

    You claim to be new, so you may not yet understand the need for Monitor
    Calibration and Profiling. This would reduce the White Colour Temperature
    to 6500K, and that should make it more acceptable for your eyes.

    Sorry if I came over to harsh. It was not my meaning. I only intended
    being honest. The way I reacted is the way I always react when
    somebody use the name of God the way you did.
    I do as you wish by leaving the thread.
    Keep well

    If that is so, you two alternatives. You may learn to write the code to
    modify Photoshop to suit your tastes, that shouldn't be too hard, or you
    can learn to live with it as it is, like every other PS user in the world.

    I doubt the fool would have the "depth" of knowledge to edit a dynamic
    link library, much less find the information on how to alter one in "3

    I doubt he'd see the reasoning in that Roy. He's looking for a quick fix
    and not prepared to adapt himself to what is arguably the world's best
    photo editing program enjoyed by many millions of people who don't have
    his problem - using the wrong bait.

  10. I repeat: Your "three click" claim is worse than a bluff; it's an
    outright lie. Please stop making a stink and simply leave this

  11. Blah blah blah. You can't just leave this thread alone, can you?
    Alan Birchard, Nov 29, 2008
  12. I meant new to this newsgroup.
    This is basically the sunglasses principle. I won't change my world
    to accommodate Photoshop. Photoshop should accommodate me. Thanks
    for trying to help, but 90% of white is still white. I want black.
    Alan Birchard, Nov 29, 2008
  13. Well spoken. The argumentative morons that have corrupted this thread
    would be appalled to see someone taunting and jeering at a wheelchair
    bound person who couldn't find a way into a building but they do the
    same thing themselves when they say "Climb the stairs with your hands,
    you lazy jerk" or "Go away and find a different building that suits
    you" or "Tear down the stairs and build your own ramp." Great

    I wish you well, Dana.

  14. Cheers for working on a solution, John.

    There are occasions when some very rude people target a poster. This time
    it's your turn. It is not easy to ignore these prats! as they tend to
    monopolize the thread and get in the way of everybody else who may have
    something constructive to say.

    Unfortunately, I don't know the answer to the problem. On my CS3 the
    palettes are light grey (the monitor displays a full white correctly). I
    have not changed anything. There is nothing in prefs that I can see that
    alters palettes colours or shades. It appears to me that it must have
    something to do with your monitor calibration. But then I would assume you
    would notice such a glaring problem in your picture display. I wonder if it
    may be something to do with your graphics card not displaying properly. I
    used to have a similar problem many years ago with another program that
    displayed one particular colour incorrectly. Changing the card fixed the
    problem. Have you seen CS3 on any other computer and how does it differ from

    Good luck sorting it.

  16. That makes two people who have called bullshit on you, Jurgen. You
    claimed to have found the solution in three *3* THREE! (only 3!) mouse
    clicks. Put up or shut up.

  17. On Sat, 29 Nov 2008 23:15:10 -0000, "PDM" <pdcm99minus this
    Same here. They're 237-237-237 out of 255-255-255 so that's close
    enough to white to call it white, at least for me.
    That seems to be the case, and I cannot express my disgust with Adobe
    because of it.
    I haven't seen it on any other but it wouldn't matter. I'm not
    talking about five or ten percentage points. I'm talking about the
    Adode programmers robbing me of my freedom to choose, and my choice
    happens to be black. 127-127-127 would still be too bright because
    I'm working with a 50" widescreen plasma monitor. I don't even want
    64-64-64. I want 0-0-0. Black.

    well I did it and did not bother a screenshot to show your rude ass
    but nasty old man you don't get one now

    I did not say you were visually impaired but the option is design for that &
    so called that name on the tab
    And if you're so smart you woulda tried before shooting your big WHINER

    I made my entire system all windows
    green and black whatever I wanted
    and tested in PS CS3

    works for me

    I am NOT asking you to change your world.

    I AM suggesting that your screen may be much too bright, causing the glare.

    Calibration and Profiling will bring your screen to the correct level of
    Brightness with the correct Shade of White.

    Roy G, Nov 30, 2008
  20. Yeah. Sure. Maybe next week you'll let me paint the fence. You and
    Jurgen are both liars, and you're using the most childish and juvenile
    tactic in the history of the world: "I know how to do it, but you
    were mean to me so I won't show you how!" Horse feathers.

    Now would you please just go away and leave this thread alone?
