For the next update, can we have an option to change color of the border around the spot removal area from white to black? Being able to set it to black would be great, for the time when we’re spot removing on white backgrounds. Also, in the sync popup menu, can we have the option to sync specific colors instead of just all of them? Those 2 features would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!!

On Win 8.1, I see gray-outlined white circles and arrow on my spot-removal tool and the gray part shows up on white areas just fine for me.

What set of colors are you asking to sync specific ones of? If you mean HSL colors that would be 8x3=24 checkboxes.

I'm talking about the border of the spot that gets created when you click on the photo with that gray circle. That border is white not gray.

I wouldn't mind having those 24 checkboxes and i'm sure you guys can tuck them in in a way where we would have to open a drop down menu to be able to see them.

Here is what I see--everything has gray outlines:

You know what I just realized, if you just click one spot the border remains gray but if you click and drag it switches the border white, that is the issue. So it only switches the border to white when you paint in a spot removal area.

Ok, here is what you're talking about--the click-drag outline is just white without any gray--that needs to be changed.

On pure white, you cannot see the area being corrected during the click-drag or afterwards:


This is the same thing, with the exposure reduced so the image is not pure white, anymore:

Adobe is unlikely to comment with an answer to your question, directly, but may mark the idea thread as acknowledged or under-consideration.

I should clarify that I am just another user like yourself, not an Adobe rep.
