What's up with the difference in adjustment layers?

Hello..haven't posted in awhile....I have a situation with a saturation adjustment layer....sometimes the adjustment layer icon looks like a computer, other times it turns into a circle. Does anyone know what causes this or what it represents? Thanks for your help!

Hmmm... very interesting. Never seen that in PS7.

What version are you using?

I have often wondered about this.
Happens to me all the time (PS7.0 and CS2) on a PC.

I've always put it down to some sort of lack of memory space, but I'd be very interested if someone could explain it properly.

I could be mistaken about this, but I believe that it is because there is a lack of space because of the layer mask and layer naming convention being used.

This depends on whether your Picture is upright or view.

Load a rectangular image and you get one symbol. Rotate it 90 degrees and the symbol changes.

Photshop geek trivia......

This happens when the width is more than 1.43 times the height.

(for PS7.0, small thumbnail palette option)
