Changing the color behind the image

When color accuracy is important to us (which, come to think of it, is all the time!), we keep the area around the image gray.

To change the color of the area surrounding the image:

  • Do either of the following:
  • To change the color around the image for just the current screen mode, right-click/Ctrl-click that area and choose Gray, Black, or Custom (the last chosen custom color) from the context menu, or choose Select Custom Color and choose a color from the picker.
  • To change the color around the image for any or all of the three screen modes, go to Preferences > Interface, then from the Color menu for Standard Screen Mode, Full Screen with Menus, or Full Screen, choose (Gray, Black, or Custom (the last chosen custom color) or choose Select Custom Color and choose a color from the picker.*
