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.
I would really like to disable or change the Photoshop splash screen. Is this possible?
I do not think that is possible. That question has been asked before here.
Is there a way to disable the horribly unsettling splash screen of an over processed woman in the October 2017 iteration of Photoshop.
It's an unpleasant image. It looks like all those over cooked images that indicate inexperienced photographic processing. It's everything I detest. Now I have to see it every time I load the app.
Grumpy old man, over and out!
No it can't be disabled.
On the good side, at least Photoshop does not now steal the windows focus multiple times during launch, so if you use multiple screens you can get on with something else
That's a shame.
Whilst it's good to be able to get on with other stuff during load, I'm still aware that this lurid mishmash of misconceived imagery is lurking somewhere beneath the surface on MY workstation. I don't want it there.
It could be worse...remember this?
Seriously, I couldn't agree more. I'm embarrassed every time I have to open the application with someone watching over my shoulder.
You are right, Jon-M-Spear. I perfectly share your feelings.
In cannot help you.
I found only how change it in InDesign CC 2018 for mac :
Application/InDesign/InDesign[open the package]/Contents/Ressources/ID_SplashCC.png and ID_SplashCC@2x
But I dont find the same way in the Photoshop package. Yet he should be somewhere…
ISTR reading that they stopped us being able to edit splash screens a good few versions ago, to prevent misuse / abuse. Something along the lines of Rolls Royce cars have to be transported in closed trailers if they break down. The sad reality is that they probably have a point. I can remember when we discovered Auto-Correct in MS Word in the lab I worked in, and the boss's computer was set so when he typed his name, it immediately replaced it with something we thought more appropriate.
Meanwhile, here's something for the aging reminiscers to go all gooey eyed over. Them were the days...
That's right. It was still possible in CS3, and maybe CS4. Mostly people wanted their own business name in there, presumably to impress clients - but we saw some horrible alterations here in the forums, people asking "how do I do this" and you just cringed...present examples pale in comparison.
But why is it yet possible with InDesign ?
Because it hasn't been necessary to remove it there - the typical user is very different. Every gamer- and youtube-kid wants to have Photoshop to play around with. In contrast, InDesign is still an application mainly used by people who make a living from it.
That said, judging by the recent splash screens, you couldn't tell the difference.
I've change yesterday may splash screen in Indesign on my mac, very easy : its a normal png file in the Ressource folder.
Thank you for all your clarifications.
Now, can you say me where I could at least erase a file in order to hide this picture ?
I prefer to see nothing during start of PS than this one.

Re: Splash Screen: CC 19.00 Release
If it was possible to just delete a file, it would also be possible to edit it. There's no way you can get to it.
Lightroom has a Preference to show/hide splash screen, but Photoshop, unfortunately, doesn't.
