    How do you set Fill Screen as default view mode?

    Jim Mooney

      Does anyone have a way to set the Fill Screen view mode as the default view?

      This would work if there was a hotkey for it, or if it could be selected while recording an action.

      And then run it in the Script Events Manager with the "Open Document" option.

       

      When the zoom tool is selected and the option window is on, there are four options...

       

      Actual Pixels, Fit Screen, Fill Screen, Print Size

       

      But in the Menu options, Fill Screen is NOT an option (for some odd reason).

       

      My only guess is this has to be done with a script, but I cannot find anything online that addresses this problem

      and I'm not a script programmer.  Although I know how to use them (and modify them a little).

       

      By the way, I'm using Photoshop CS5

       

      Thanks for any help!

          You can insert two menu item into an action in an Actions set. Then set  Script Manager a script even for an open document event to play that action.

            Thanks for the reply, but Fill screen is not in the menu so it cannot be used through actions as far as I know.  That's my problem.

              There should be three screen mode in the menu and there is a Shortcut key F also.

                This is what I am trying to do.  Fill screen is right here. It is a zoom option.  It is not in the menu so you can't make an action out of it.

                And I don't know whether or not it can even be scripted, that is what I'm trying to find out.

                 

                The "Full Screen Modes" almost work, but don't work very well with my workflow.

                Thanks for the help!!

                  I use Windows.  On Windows in Photoshop,  I know Ctrl+0 Fit on Screen menu "View>Fit on screen" will zoom the current document to fit within Photoshop windows without scroll bars.  And that Photoshop menu "View>Screen Mode>Full Screen Mode"  will use the full display area as image display any display area not used because of image zoom size will be black. If Photoshop has a "Fill Screen" on Mac I have no idea it there is a menu item for Windows does not have a "Fill Screen" option.

                        Photo Collage Toolkit

                         

                        Photoshop scripting is powerful and I believe this package demonstrates this A video showing a 5 image collage PSD template  being populates with images:

                         

                        The package includes four simple rules to follow when making Photo Collage Template PSD files so they will be compatible with my Photoshop scripts.

                        1. Size the photo collage templates for the print size you want - width, height and print DPI resolution.
                        2. Photo collage templates must have a Photoshop background layer. The contents of this layer can be anything.
                        3. Photo collage templates must have alpha channels named "Image 1", "Image 2", ... "Image n".
                        4. Photo collage templates layers above the background layers must provide transparent areas to let the images that will be placed below them show through.

                         

                        There are fifteen scripts in this package they provide the following functions:

                        1. HelpPhotoCollageToolkit.jsx - Online Help
                        2. TestCollageTemplate.jsx - Used to test a Photo Collage Template while you are making it with Photoshop.

                        6. ReplaceCollageImage.jsx - use to replace a populated collage image Smart Object layer with an other image correctly resized and positioned.
                        7. ChangeTextSize.jsx - This script can be used to change Image stamps text size when the size used by the populating did not work well.
                        8. PopulateCollageTemplate.jsx - Used to Automatically populate a Photo Collage template and leave the populated copy open in Photoshop.
                        9. BatchOneImageCollage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Collage templates that only have one image inserted. The Collage or Image may be stamped with text.
                        10. BatchMultiImageCollage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Any Photo Collage template with images in a source image folder. Easier to use than the interactive script. Saved collages can be tweaked.
