Hello, i am trying to view PSD file online using https://assets.adobe.com/ tool. It has white background and some elements. But online tool render white background not in #FFFFFF, but in #FCFCFC color.

Problem is in https://assets.adobe.com/build22e2f37... line 47:

#mouseListenerOverlay {
.....
background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.01);

}

Looks like browsers reders rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.01) not as white, but as grey. So in result psd with white background becomes psd with grey background.

When downloading same psd and viewing in other apps, they all show #ffffff, so it is problem on https://assets.adobe.com/, not on psd file.

Which browser are you using?
Which OS version?

Some browsers do color management, so a document value of 255,255,255 in sRGB could be mapped to something slightly different for your display. (differences would be even greater for mid tone values)

The thumbnails returned by the web site are also JPEGs I believe, which can alter values slightly.

I am using forefox on mac, but same psd preview issue is on chrome+mac and firefox+windows (virtual box).

I believe this is not related to jpeg, because when previewing PSD (its background is #FFFFFF) in adobe assets and deleting DOM element #mouseListenerOverlay from inspector, background color changes from #FCFCFC to #FFFFFF.

Problem is in https://assets.adobe.com/build22e2f37... line 47. Why adobe assest ads grey background over psd?

Quick test: rendering this html (in chrome and firefox) gives #FCFCFC background. And adobe assets ads this layer (as DOM element #mouseListenerOverlay) over PSD.

<div style="border:1px solid grey;width:100px;height:100px;background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.01); ">This background is not white</div>

Why it is grey? because of part "0.01".

p.s. issue is detected when previewing PSD and choosing extract layers only.

OK, that part I can't explain at all.
We'll have to see if we can forward this to the folks working on that web site/service.
