Quick Tip: Change Lightroom Background Color

Change the background color in LIghtroom.
You can quickly and easily change the canvas background color in Lightroom. In loupe view (if you’re in grid view, click the “e” key to switch to loupe view), simply right-click (and/or control-click on a Mac) anywhere on the canvas (the white, gray, or black background) to change the color.

I had my Lightroom background color set to medium gray, but my portfolio website has a white background, and my photos were looking a little dark against the white. Changing the background to white in Lightroom allowed me to edit my photos with the same background color as the one they’ll appear against.
