That's normal behauviour.
When you use powerful apps like Photoshop, your processor produces more heat and therefore the fans need to spin up. That's fine. And those fans can be really loud.
When watching videos in Safari, you use Flash, which again needs a lot of power. That's why your fans rev up.
From what you're saying, everything is fine with your Mac.

So,
a few questions are in order:
- Which machine is this you have trouble with? (Apple Menu->About this mac)
- Operating system?
- What version of photoshop are you running?
- Is your machine actually heavily stressed (Activity monitor can tell your CPU utilization (Applications->Utilities->Activity monitor)
- what are your temperatures ( iStat will tell you) and fan speeds.

RGDS,

RGDS,
Sorry for late reply

I Guess this pic answers ur 1st and 2d question




- I'm using Photoshop CS6

- This is my Activity Monitor

it's not really heavily stressed and sometime i'm only using skype to chat with some friends over the webcam the sound of the fan comes like it's heavily stressed

In Activity Monitor, change My Processes to All Processes and sort by CPU, then post.

What you really need to do is:
- wait until one of those moments, when the fans start whining
- have a look at activity monitor (just as B... suggested)
- get some kind of reading on those temperatures
=> Post that data...

I'm not saying it necessarily is a symptom of anything worrying (in some MBP's merely running a time machine backup sends them screaming), but we might as well make sure...

Weird. That page usually works. Try this link instead.

Also, if you do not want it as a widget, Marcel Bresink's Temperature Monitor is a classic.

Click on "% CPU" at the top of the list to sort by CPU. If it sorts in increasing order then click it again to have it sort in decreasing order, which is what we want to see.
You can see this pic the sound of the fan it's like it's really stressed but i'm only opening safari nothing else and in safari i'm browsing twitter, intuit and Macrumors only this webpages

Are you looking at videos on Twitter? You keep saying "only" but it seems to me like you're underestimating what it takes to do what you're doing.

It sounds like there's a lot of dust in your system. You need to open it and remove all of the dust.

Thanx for the reply can you help me how can i do it
iFixit should give you a good idea of how to open up your MacBOOK Pro.

Viewing pages that uses flash or videos can cause the fan to spin at full speed. It's very normal!
