Help needed with CS3

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

  1. I haven't read every single thread here, but i think CS4 lets you
    color everything any way you want. I haven't played with that much,
    but the Interface Preferences has a lot of color selections.

    WANKER! Happy now, first time I've ever responded to a troll like you.

    wonder why somebody reposted this without adding something to it.
    Obvious an idiot trying out newsgroups, searching 4 the edit button.

  4. So you don't like top posters. We get it. No need to pretend to not
    see it. That's deceit and deceit is a LIE, just like when you said

  5. Huh. And just when I was about to sell my CS3 and swear off
    everything Adobe for all eternity. If you'd be so kind as to confirm
    that you can make the palettes black in CS4, with a choice of colors
    for the text and icons on them, I'd appreciate your input a great deal
    and I'd go ahead and contact Adobe about an upgrade. The white menu
    bar would be my next question, and the white background of the help
    files after that, but for now the main thing eating my lunch is the
    white palettes.

    Yes thanks.
    And I'm relieved to know I can be seen!

    The palette, menu, background colours etc, are set by Windows not PS.
    Right click your desktop and select properties.
    Select the appearance tab, the click advanced.
    You can then select each individual aspect from the 'Item' dropdown and
    pick a colour you like.
    Just had a go with black and green and it doesn't work for me, I'll
    stick with Windoze classic.

  11. Not the palettes. I appreciate that you're trying to help, but you
    might want to read a bit more about what's going on before you
    respond. This thread is about the palettes. (And the Help files, and
    the Menu bar.) As John already mentioned, Photoshop CS3 overrides the
    user's choices and forces their own blinding eye strain choices. The
    palettes are extremely light gray with no way yet discovered to change
    them. The help files are white. The menu bar is white. A couple
    local chickenshits (Jurgen and KatWoman) claim to know how to change
    them but refuse to tell out of spite. They're fond to my heart. They
    take me right back to second grade.

  12. Yeah man. As I mentioned, these Photoshop assholes forced black text
    and icons over ten years ago, and I spent months memorizing every
    single option and tickbox because they were all invisible on my black
    background. For ten years I have been using Photoshop 5 without being
    able to actually see the palettes I'm working with. Now with CS3
    instead of growing up and fixing it they made it twice as bad with the
    forced white palettes.
    Yup. But apparently, not bloody likely.

  13. Nah, just a fan of Seinfeld. Jerry and Kramer get to arguing over who
    can do the best Cockney accent and their test phrase is "Not bloody
    How so?
