Changing the Color of Quick Mask and Refine Edge in Photoshop

Double clicking the Quick Mask icon in the Tool panel in Photoshop enables changing the color of the Quick Mask overlay. This can be helpful when viewing the Quick mask over an image where the subject or background is similar to the default red overlay.  Note: changing the Quick Mask color will also change the Overlay option (in View Mode) when in Refine Edge.
