How to open images centered?

In Photoshop, when I drag/drop an image into the PS dock icon, the image opens behind the left side menu windows.  I have to move the menus down to view the image.  Then drag the image to the working area.

You can see in the image below that shield165 has opened behind the menus.  Is there a way to fix the default location that images open?

I'm not sure what version of Photoshop you are referencing and I see you are using a Mac.
I use a PC and am looking at Photoshop CS6 - but I think menu items are cross-platform.
The menu item under Window/ New Workspace will allow you to save the workspace as you would like it arranged. So, drag everything as you would like it and then save the workspace with your preferred name. You should be able to open that workspace each time with your preferences intact.

Hope this helps. :)

Yes - I'm using PS CS4 on Mac.  Workspace isn't the issue.  Nothing in the workspace moves around.  It's opening images that is the issue.

it might be trying to open them as a tab?

Try this -
Go to Preferences> Interface> Panels & Documents. In that section you will see a check box to turn off 'Open Documents as Tabs' - turning it off will result in opening new documents as Floating windows.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

That only resizes the panes.  It doesn't change the default location that a dragged/dropped image will open.

Perhaps you need the New image to DOCK. That Centers it in PS....

Ps

DRAG START will place images in TABS like SO....

Looks like that's the best way to go.  Would like it to open in a floating window but this solves the hidden image problem.
