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.
editing concert photos REQUIRES you to have a black background not only the full screen preview but also the interface itself to be black. my interface has been set on black for 15 years. and now i get a new computer and new version of bridge and you take that BASIC FUNCTIONALITY out?. why would you take out the number one functional element of your software? arent you photographers (rolls eyes really really hard so much it hurts).
put it back in NOW. like TODAY 2-25-2019
In the new bridge 2019 you can no longer change the background color behind thumbnails, I work with many images that have white or very light grey backgrounds. Having a white background behind them is crucial to discern if their color fill layer is missing. Please bring this option back! Changing the color theme is not meeting my needs.
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.
