Full-screen Photoshop!

That's probably obvious for many Photoshop experts, but even though I use Photoshop daily, I didn't know that was in there. It is probably because I don't take the time to learn Photoshop, I use it for what I need to do and I look for the features when I need them. I was doing some rotoscoping today and I absolutely needed to put points outside of the canvas. In the past, I just unzoomed to add those points, but I really had to be zoomed in this time and it is just not possible in the default way Photoshop works. What I have discovered is that it is easy to do this in full screen mode. To toggle between the modes, including full screen, you just have to press "F".

I was wondering if you could take a screenshot of this to explain what you are talking about? Are you using CS3?

Or you could just hold the spacebar and clic-hold to drag the canvas to where you want, then release spacebar and click to place the point. This also works for when you are Lasso selecting something and the canvas is zoomed.

Space bar will pause any tool you are using and allow you to click and drag around the window. For presenting something hit "F" three times and then hit "tab."

Hi this is Emmanuel Carreon. TO DO A FULL SCREEN ON PHOTOSHOP, ill give you two option,
you can go to (Edit>Keyboard shortcut>Window , it is located in the application menu command BOX. then you will see on the sub-menu click TILES then you can put shortcut command+0 key for FULLSCREEN i have been using these settings for ages or

THE BEST WAY. which is just i found today, is go to (Windows>application frame) thats it!

for those who are compatible with the first one, must do this as well to prevent from zooming out with the whole screen, click command+K , then uncheck the "Zoom Resizes Windows"

Yes, thank you for this. Something so simple makes a world of difference. I'd say I'm pretty awesome at photoshop, but when I discover tips like this and the spacebar tip, i'm like snap! I ain't no pro! lol. what really accelerated my photoshop learning curve was the ctrl t function. holy shnikeys! that made so many things easier...
