LR3 needs to incorporate in the crop overlay grid lines the ability to change color and width of the lines.

It rather pathetic that lesser editors have an option to change the gridline overlay colors. Gray lines on light subjects, like buildings, simply disappear. Forums show the request has been gong on for 4 years. sheez louise

Still no progress on this. It seems it would be a simple fix. Since I can't see what it was like in Lightroom CC before I upgraded to Classic CC it may not have changed but it seems like the lines were white before but they are a gray color now. On most backgrounds I've been cropping on they virtually disappear. Being able to choose between black and white would be wonderful. If gray was added I guess that would be OK, but it's almost unusable.

Could be me, but it seems the grid lines are dimmer or thinner or both with the latest release. It would be nice if ANY overlay lines were adjustable for thickness and color.

LR 7 introduced a bug where the brightness of the grid lines varies depending on whether the graphics processor is enabled or not. If this is happening to you, please add your me-too vote and details of your issue to the bug report: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-classic-crop-overlay?topic-reply-li...

Crop overlays are too difficult to see. The lines are way too thin and very light Why not at least provide options to make the crop overlay lines bolder/wider and possibly different colors, as light gray does not always work.

Different colours would really save me time (and eye strain)

Different colours would be very helpful. Hadn’t thought of changing the opacity - but that would make a big difference too

This kind of problematic cause’s perpendicular lines to seem tilted and is often produced by the camera gunfire from age by revolving on the Y-axis. This viewpoints the image after side to lateral and resolves the glitches produced by gunfire at an angle in relative to the topic. https://solidfittingsltd.com/product-category/hydraulic-adapter/

I don't know why this is so difficult for Adobe.  I can do it in Photoshop for goodness sake.  LR is supposed to be an application for professional photographers.  I spend hours a week cropping photos of artworks, and this lack makes my task so much more difficult.

I'll thow in my 2c here -- would be great to have configurable grids. I like being able to switch them, but it would be nice, for example, to have a "rule of thirds" that could add smaller subdivisions.
