Seriously, put that in the preferences... It used to annoy me in the past... but now with the hideous CS6 splash screens it's simply a necessity.
Honestly - this one would make me cringe even more than the present one. Why does it have to be a cross between fashion magazine cover and some sword-and-sorcery computer game? And why does the splash screen have to contain an image at all?
I just want to open Photoshop. I don't want to see mediocre high-school level imagery.

You're right, there was no need to be insulting. I apologize.
Still, this is exactly the kind of image I don't want to see in a splash screen. I'm sure it's excellent Photoshop work, but it is a cross between fashion magazine cover and sword'n'sorcery computer game. The whole genre is fine for those into that kind of thing, but I'm not.
Just out of curiosity - what made you think I'm a wedding photographer...? I think you must be confusing me with someone else. I am a photographer by profession, but I haven't seen the inside of a wedding since my own.
When I see that CC 2018 graphics which I dislike as well (however don't care much of), I feel that was bad choise (not saying splash screen would be better with credits only, if something). But then after seeing how buggy CC 2018 was in October 2017 (and still is, certainly less) comparing to earlier releases (not mentioning almost perfect CS6, after six years I work with) I am finally figuring out what could be point of that. The model who acted to that art had probably illustrate her poor impression at that she found about newest Photoshop. If that was good product in last beta phase we would have loved looking at her happy face. But realising we're all going to be beta testers in alpha release for next 6 months, made, the only she could do was to apply some destructive side-effect drugs to be able work with Ps like that was no nearly a hundred new bugs tool.
So after all I'm fine with that 'crying' girl. At least launching Ps I'm somehow warned what kind of the world I'm entering.
To not be like I'm only complaining, I'm glad Ps engenieers do their best to fix everything that was messed, I see that but still, nearly half a year after release some things work the way they should not. Well what is Beta phase then for? Honestly I would like personally to wait one year more, or even wait 2 years between next versions, but be happy a new product I am recieving to use everyday is a tool I'd like to recommend to everyone with no doubts.
Really, I'd like splash screen was the only (the biggest) problem we have. I guess that could be fastly solved if Adobe team didn't have to make for better anything else there is priority to take care of.
I understand you have your own gripe with a particular bug that you took up in a separate thread. From what you describe, I can understand that's annoying.
At the same time, I also feel there is a silent group of users who should speak up more: we who use Photoshop for 8 hours a day and never encounter a single one of these bugs. Honest to god. With the possible exception of a small handful that have been acknowledged by Adobe. I haven't seen those either, but that must be because I've never been in one of those situations where they appear.
And truth be told, some of them you really have to cross the street to encounter. Like the one about saving a jpeg as a DNG. I mean, who does that?
But from where I sit, it all works perfectly, and it has done so consistently through all the CC versions. Does that make me special?
The bugs I have seen in the past, have all been video driver related. Even those went away after I ditched AMD/Nvidia gamer's cards and went all quadro, with drivers that, thankfully, don't need to cater to the gaming crowd. These cards are rock solid and, at the lower end, like the P600, affordable. They may not have a zillion megaflops per nanosecond, but they work.
I do appreciate the fundamental nature of bugs: they only appear under very special circumstances. If that wasn't so, they would have been fixed already. So yes, bugs certainly happen. But that's also the point I'm trying to make: it's not nearly as bad as many claim.
Opening Photoshop and seeing this disturbed rooster literally makes me cringe. This never happened before. Nothing agains ugly people, but don't shove it in my face by force! Ok, I am done ranting.
Have they gotten rid of the hideous woman with the chemical burns and boils on her face yet? I'm using PS2017 till they do. I'd like to use the current version, but not if I have to wake up to her every day.
Put a paper bag over your face
Splash Screen: CC 19.00 Release
When you disable the splash screen you wonder if PS is starting when you launch it. You do not see the little messages in the splash screen for there is none.
I've disabled it, and it's a relief. Unfortunately it only works when launching PS from the taskbar. If PS is launched by opening a file, the splash will still appear.
It's just a bad choice for a splash screen image. It's a "seen-once-made-your-point" type of image. I'm sure it's splendid by itself, and it would probably work well in another context, like a magazine article illustration. But I don't want it in my face every time. I've already seen it, I get it. You made your point.
There really should be a "disable splash" checkbox in Preferences. Many other applications have that - including, notably, Lightroom.

Who remembers the "electric cat" easter egg splash screen from (i think) PSv.6?
*EDIT: I looked it up, it was V.4... dang im getting old
It's the White Lion for CC 2018
...or there's this one...
I couldn't agree more! Art and fashion are the only things in life so horrible, you have to throw them away every few months! I'm so sick of models with facial expressions like they're just had a frontal lobotomy, and that splash screen is a fine example. Get rid of her! Anyone know how?
I agree- That took artistic skill to create, but it's an eyesore! How did you disable the splashscreen?
The cat shows up a lot in the beta splash screens.
