This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Bridge: I still desire a dark (or white) surround on image reviews, and this is no longer possible.

I am a daily user of Adobe Bridge as an image editor and retoucher, one thing we look for is ensuring our images on white are fully on white (ie. no particles or lines around the border of an image). Older versions of bridge allowed the changing of background colour while in filmstrip view and this allowed us to change the background from black to grey to full white. Please reimplement this feature into the newer versions of Bridge CC.

I agree that Adobe badly bungled the new UI and that white should be an option. However, I am a product photographer and you cannot tell if a background is pure white simply by looking at it on a white surround.

Try creating a Levels adjustment layer, and drag the black slider as far right as it will go. Duplicate that adjustment layer. NOW you can see if there is anything left behind.

Yes thank you for the tip, we do currently use that trick however sometimes a layer shifted a few pixels can be missed but caught in Bridge (ie a hard coloured edge or shadow). The white bridge background is typically our final check.
