The Background Color in Lightroom’s Develop Module

Adobe Lightroom Classic

In the Develop module, Control -click (Mac) / Right Mouse -click (Win) the gray background behind the image to change the Background Color to Light Gray. This will help avoid underexposing images when making adjustments. If you know that you will be displaying the images against a particular background color, you could also use this feature to preview what that will look like.

    Is there anyway to change the color (lighten) of the overall interface in LR4 as you can in CS6 products?

      Not at this time.
