How to get old New Document window in Photoshop CC 2017?

If you have recently installed Photoshop CC 2017, you have probably noticed completely new & shiny New Document window. You can see it in the screenshot below. Isn’t it beautiful?

New Document window in Photoshop CC 2017The problem for me is that this window is too fancy and it takes much more time to show than the legacy one. So I decided to turn it off and go back to the old one. So here’s a short tip on how to get it back in case you would also like to restore it:

  1. Go to Edit -> Preferences -> General… on Windows or Photoshop CC -> Preferences -> General… on Mac.
  2. Make sure “Use Legacy “New Document” Interface” checkbox is checked (marked in red in the screenshot below)
  3. Click on the OK button to confirm your changes.

    Really? That’s crazy. I haven’t noticed that. But it’s yet another reason to switch back to old window.

    Yeah almost 1 hours lost to find an option way to change the colored background into transparent. You just can’t or you have to trick like export and open the image and use magic tool to remove background… Like that you lost quality at the same time you get bad shapes borders 🙁
