Lightroom Mobile: Ability to change the interface background color

I would love to be able to change the background color of the Lightroom Mobile interface while I'm editing an image. Working freelance and traveling a lot and commuting, I use my iPad a lot to make adjustments so I can save time. Several of my jobs have required me to have backgrounds close to white but without being white (specifically e-commerce photos). Even though I'm using the clipping mask to see my white and black points, it would still be nice to have a white background during those projects to make sure I don't make my models look like they're floating in the middle of nowhere. It would be one more step I could get done before even getting to the studio! Thanks!

I agree 100% with this. Most of our photography will be seen on white backgrounds, Instagram, websites, etc

Much more useful than the dark grey one

I concur.  And furthermore -- I'd like to be able to change the background for the Develop module toolbox to a lighter color to get more contract between the background and the text.

Yes! I’m looking for pure white editing backdrop as all my product photography is used for Instagram, website, and a bunch of other places where white is the platform’s main backdrop.

I’m constantly amazed at how different images look edited on white vs black/grey.

Please add this feature :) could be a night/day switch (black/white)

Second this idea. My Photograpbhy mostly goes on IG and a white BG is needed for appropriate preview.

Definitely would take some of the guesswork out of getting highlights right especially when the brightest parts of a scene aren’t that bright.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Add option to change Develop module background in Lightroom CC mobile (iOS and An....

Please allow us to edit our photos on a different shade background, e.g. 18% gray or light gray, as we are already allowed to do in Lightroom CC Classic. Thanks!

Tagging along with the other replies.  This really needs to come to Lightroom Mobile.  Make this happen Adobe!  I think it's fair to say that most people editing on the mobile version of Lightroom are posting to either Instagram, (white background) or a portfolio site (light backgrounds are the trend right now, not dark).
