If you dislike tabs turn off
Photoshop > Preferences > Interface > Open Documents as Tabs
Photoshop > Preferences > Interface > Enable Floating Document Window Docking
And maybe try
Window > Arrange > Tile
Thank you this was very helpful!
Next question: I am creating a blog post with a lot of different images, and would like all my open images to somehow fan out as thumbnails so i can pick which image i would like to work on next. I used to do this in CS2 by using hot corners. But can't figure out how to do it on this new rig. Any ideas?
Thank you c.pfaffenbichler!
I figured it out!
Just go to system preferences > mission control and uncheck the box marked " group windows by application "
Then, when using "hot corners" and you spread out "application windows", all the images open in photoshop will also be spread out .
