I thought that the grid color, in preferences might do it, but no joy there. The golden spiral is nearly invisible. I am working on a large 27 inch iMac, if that would make any difference.

Thanks for the reply Laden. Actually I am referring to the alignment overlay, such as rule of thirds, grid, golden ratio, golden spiral, etc... I would like to change that to something other than gray. As I mentioned, the golden spiral is very difficult to see, especially on a busy image.

oh, i see. i'm sorry, didn't get that.
i just had a look at it on my screen. here a screen grab. it is trying to find the best contrast and it works well for me.

i can imagine that changing the color could be very helpful in some cases.
you can make a feature request here under IDEAS.

Offer the option to change the color of the crop alignment overlay, just like the grids and guides.
