It was independent of CC2017's Dark, light, medium, etc. overall look.
Problem: In Bridge CC2019 (October 2018) this ability has been removed. So, while I prefer a lighter overall interface, I still desire a dark surround on image reviews, and this is no longer possible.
Please bring it back. Isn't it silly to have removed it?
I have been a regular Photoshop user since 1991 and am a photographer and color correction specialist. I am dismayed that you can no longer create a custom color interface in Adobe Bridge and new versions of ACR. It is important for my workflow to have a consistent 18% grey throughout my entire process from Bridge to ACR to Photoshop. Currently, only PS allows for a custom color background. Bridge and ACR have removed that option in recent versions. Please reinstate those options if at all possible! Thanks, David Ulrich
See the attached photo for the missing options in 2019 which are affecting my "surround" color when previewing the images.
It used to be independent of the interface shade options.
Now, in 2019, it is wholly dependent on the interface shading, so that one cannot choose a light interface, and still get a dark gray or a black surround during preview.
Bridge CC (v9) does not allow you to view images on pure black or white background (RGB 0, 0, 0 or 255, 255, 255). I work for a large retailer's ecom department and our site, like most websites, are still using white backgrounds. Being able to see our images on white before they go live is the quickest, easiest way to evaluate the consistency of background values in our ecom images. Even if a website is using a different background color, it is highly advantageous to be able to customize the Image Backdrop (as it was called in Bridge v8). I was hoping the interface customization options would expand, not decrease, in the Bridge v9 release. Adobe, please make Bridge more like Photoshop, and allow the user to change the image backdrop so creative professionals can tailor your tools to support our wide variety of creative assignments.
