Can you dim UI panels or make them darker when they're not in focus please, see this screenshot, it's Photoshop on top of Flash and sometimes it's hard to concentrate: http://cl.ly/2k0A2O3z082A1R3m112m

The OS is responsible for window management between apps. Here are some workarounds:

1. Hold down the Command and Option keys when you click Photoshop in the OS X Dock. This will hide the other applications when you bring Photoshop to the front.

2. Hit Command + Option + H with Photoshop in the front to hide Flash in the background.

3. Choose Window>Application Frame in Photoshop to turn on the application background/frame to block out applications behind Photoshop.
