Did you know that Lightroom has 6 different background color options? That’s right! As an editor we have 6 colors to choose from when deciding what color background we want to edit on. There is Black, Darker Gray, Dark Grey, Medium Grey, Light Grey, and White. Here are a few of the options below.
With 6 choices available
how do you know which one to choose
Is one color better than another when editing? With the majority of the choices being grey, should you just pick a grey one you like? After all, it’s just personal preference. Or is it? Well, to some degree, yes! I suppose personal preference plays a role. But as an editor, that edits weddings primarily, I think there is a color that is better than all the rest.
Watch my video tutorial below and see if you agree. And then leave me a comment about your color of choice and why? I’d love to hear what color background other editors use.
