Have a problem. I just acquired a Mac Mini, my 1st OSX system. Ive been using Photoshop for years. viewing on a 40' flatscreen TV.
I can't get images to open at a viewable resolution and have to click z several times to get into view, and then grab to pul it down to a viewable window. r clicking 100% just sends it back down to a speck. Never had this happen before.

What version of Photoshop are you using?
What OS version?

And did you resize the application background (app frame) for some reason? It sounds like you made it small, and the document window is trying to fit in the tiny app frame area.

Hi. Just got the latest. cc version of PS. The Mac Mini is as well new. App frame? Not even sure what that means. I've been using PS on Windows machines for years, and I'm a bit nonplussed.

The app frame is the background behind the palettes (part of a normal windows app) that covers all the other apps. On MacOS, the app frame is optional, on Windows it is required by MS standards.

Some people try to resize it to get it out of the way, not realizing that document windows are supposed to fit inside the app frame.

Not an issue on other programs. Blender 3d wireframe modelling, for example. I'm missing something, but I can't find it...0
